I have another card to share with you that's from my upcoming Cookie Cutter Christmas Holiday Card SAS class.  This one features the adorable little gingerbread cookies.

Cookie Cutter Christmas Gingerbread Gate Fold
This gate fold card is the perfect way to show off the great patterns in the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper that go perfectly with the gingerbread man. This card starts with an Early Espresso card base.  I used two different patterns of the Candy Cane Lane DSP that are matted on Crumb Cake panels.
I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut a Whisper White circle and stamped my "boy" gingerbread in the center using Early Espresso ink.  This is layered on top a Real Red scalloped circle also using the Layering Circles Framelits.  The two "girl" gingerbreads were stamped using Crumb Cake ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White and punched using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  The bows are stamped in Real Red ink.  (I have a great tip on how to stamp the gingerbread and the bow in my class instructions.  See the end of this post for class details.)  They are so sweet!

I finished the card by stamping the Cookie Cutter Christmas greeting in Early Espresso onto a piece of Whisper White.  I fishtailed the ends with my super-sharp Paper Snips.  Sorry that's so blurry!

My favorite part of this card is the way the two front elements create an interlocking style of closure.  Both elements are adhered with Dimensionals on one side only.  A super-easy way to make a gate fold card with a little "wow" factor.  Here's another picture of how the card opens:
