  • I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this problem and it really does present me some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, through what I have personally seen, I only hope as other commentary stack on that folks keep on point and not get started on a soap box of the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this exceptional piece and while I can not agree with this in totality, I regard your point of view. Ninetta Cal Torrey

  • Wow these are so cute! We usually just do standard Christmas cards from Walmart but these make me not want to be so lazy with them. This is a card that absolutely must be kept forever with this kind of effort put in! Awesome. We’ll do these next year for sure.

  • Ahhh! I LOVE this card! It’s so adorable! Reminds me of the first Shrek movie with the smart-alek Gingerbread man. He was always good for a laugh.
    Anyhow, this is a fantastic card idea! I was thinking perhaps I could trace around a cookie cutter that I have in the shape of a gingerbread man, but on cardboard that just wouldn’t come out nearly as nicely as using a quality die-cutter, I think. Nice job!

    • Nice! I loved the smart-alek cookie!!

      Another option in addition to your cookie cutter idea, is Michael’s sells a balsa wood gingerbread man shape (in the same aisle as the craft popsicle sticks) you could always paint/color him brown and glue him to the card, or you could use him as a template to cut around.

      I made these for my friends that appreciate a little holiday humor, and using my die cut machines saved me tons of time and allowed me to assembly line the production of all 24 of them.
