Gingerbread Ornament

Here is an adorable Christmas ornament for you today.  And, it is super easy to make!  :)
I used Create a Critter 2 for the gingerbread man.  I opened it in Cricut Craft Room so that I could hide the face.  I wanted to be able to stamp a face on it so I didn't want the face cutting out.  I cut out one regular and one flip, with one white layer.  I then adhered the three layers together with the white one in the middle so the "icing" would show through.  I inked the edges lightly with some tea dye Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.  I used a red metallic cardstock for the buttons and bows.  I used star dust Stickles on the icing parts for a little more sparkle.  I used a Peachy Keen face for the face and colored in the nose and hearts with a red Zig pen.  I punched a hole in his head (which actually sounds fairly violent) and ran some red and white baker's twine through.  I tied the ends of the twine off and hung it on the tree.  Quick, easy, and soooo cute!
I made this for the following challenges:
