Christmas is my very favorite holiday so I am starting the countdown today! Over the next 25 days, I'll be sharing some of my favorite Christmas things...cards, gift and packaging ideas...until we hit the BIG DAY! If you see something you especially like, feel free to leave me a comment!
(My Christmas gift to myself will be here very soon...I was up at 3:00 am this morning placing my pre-order for the Occasions and Sale-A-Brations catalogs. I can't wait! I also ordered the new catalogs so if you're already on my mailing list, be watching for yours soon! If you're not on my mailing list, it's not too late to receive a copy! Just click on Contact Me and leave your name and address! Sorry, I can only send in the U.S.)
One of my favorite Christmas things is making Christmas cookies, which inspired today's card. This would be the perfect card to send along with a pretty package full of your favorite cookies!
Tips & Tricks
- I made the baking tray from silver foil and used the Foam Adhesive strips to give the edges a little lift.
- To create the "frosting" on the cookies, I actually stamped each image twice: one using Tip Top Taupe ink on to Crumb Cake cardstock and a second time using a colored ink (Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky and Real Red) on Shimmery White cardstock. I cut the Crumb Cake images on the outside of the image line and I cut the others pieces on the inside. When they were pieced together, you can see the "cookie" under the "frosting". I also used the Fine-Tip Glue to add a little dimension, highlight and sheen on the "frosting".
- I cut the sentiment using a circle Stitched Shape framelit. LOVE THOSE!!
I used the following products on this project:
