Thinking outside the box! Holiday card from nonholiday stamp set!

You can often stretch the versatility of your stamp sets by looking past the obvious purpose of the images and think of what other images you can get from them. I saw this idea somewhere out there in cyberland (sorry, can't remember exactly who I copied this idea from to give proper credit). Who knew a flower image (from Pick a Petal) could become a gingerbread man?!

This card also used other nonholiday sets such as Seeing Spots and Everyday Flexible Phrases. The white gel pen was used to draw on the gingerbread decorations and the dots and swirls on the tag (LOVE that gel pen)!

All materials used on this card are available from the Fall/Winter Stampin' Up! catalog that expires at the end of this month. Here are links to the list of stamp sets that are retiring from the catalog:
