Gingerbread Man Christmas Gift Tag

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I have my tree decorated and about half of my Christmas shopping completed.

Today, I made a Christmas gift tag for Mo's Challenge #162 - Don't Be SQUARE. The card or paper craft item can be any shape EXCEPT square.

This is how I made this gift tag:
(1.) I started with a red stocking-shaped base that measures approx. 3" by 5". I bought a pack of Studio G stocking shaped note cards last year after Christmas. I cut the card apart and just used the front part for this tag.
(2.) I applied some white flocking powder across the top of the stocking.
(3.) I used a piece of red glitter ribbon at the base of the flocked section of the stocking.
(4.) I used glue dots to attach the Tim Holtz "Dream" ticket to the tag.
(5.) I printed out the new Gingerbread Man digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil on coral cardstock. This image is FREE this week only!
(9.) I used a Copic marker to color the shading around the edges of the Gingerbread Man. I used some blue dot stickers for the eyes and buttons. I trimmed the arms and legs with some vintage braided trim. I traced around the edge of the Gingerbread Man image with a white gel pen and colored the inside of his mouth white. I put a little Santa's hat sticker (Jolee) on the top of his head.
(10.) I stamped the background with the pine trees from the Tim Holtz Christmas clear stamp set. I completed the tag with a pretty package sticker and some red ribbon.
