Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation, Cookies For Santa. I'll tell ya, this isn't anywhere near what this card was supposed to look like but I must say that I'm still happy with it just the same. Some time this holiday season, I hope to get the original idea put together.
I made this card to represent our theme for this week's challenge over at the GGSC Challenge Blog which is FOOD. OH, THE POSSIBILITIES...! Since I'm so stoked about this holiday season (I do have two grandsons to spoil, after all) I jumped on the chance to do another Christmas card.
Here is Birthday Tilda offering up, not cake but, Christmas Cookies made especially for Santa. I masked the cake when stamping my image and replaced it with little handmade cookies that I made using mini punches. I used my brand new Spellbinders' Floral Ovals, behind Tilda, and embossed with Snow powder. I got a little crazy with that stuff and put it all over the place, including myself. LOL! I have distressed and sewn my two designer papers and sandwiched a piece of cheesecloth between them. I thought,
"cheesecloth... cooking... baking... food... WORKS FOR ME!". More of what I used to make this card can be found at the bottom of the post.
As of today, it is exactly three months to Christmas Day! Just thought I would throw that out there so you can be just as flipped out about it as I am. Have a great day and better tomorrows!
