One of our favorite holiday traditions is decorating Christmas cookies at my Mom’s house. I tried to capture some of that magic in this card by creating a gingerbread heart “cookie”. This card features a festive new Hampton Art stamp and die set.
This card started with a green cardstock base which I stamped snowflakes onto in gray ink as shown. Next I added the red gingham paper border strip for some homemade appeal using my sewing machine to stitch it on. The banner piece was cut out of pearlescent white paper using the matching die that comes with this set. Then the “Wishing you a” sentiment was stamped onto it in gray ink. It was attached to the card base using 3D foam dots. Then I cut out the Merry piece using the other die with this set from white paper. Then I stamped the Merry cutout in green ink.
To create the cookie I grabbed a new kraft chipboard heart and used a chalkboard marker in white to simulate icing and sprinkles. Then I added the red ribbon as shown and attached cookie to the card with 3D foam dots. I attached the Merry cutout to the cookie as shown and then stamped the “very” in red ink onto white cardstock. I also stamped the bottom sentiment onto white cardstock in red ink and attached to card base with regular adhesive as shown.
A very merry cookie card was born, I like how it turned out and it reminds me of Grandma’s kitchen. Wishing you happy holiday of baking and crafting this season.
