Last week I dug out the Nothing Is Better Than stamp set to use the coffee & chocolate images to showcase Early Espresso in the Colour Creations Blog Hop.
It inspired me to use the same set again this week, but for Heart of Christmas.
What could be more Christmassy than baking a heap of cookies - to give as gifts, or just to enjoy around the Christmas tree with your family and friends?
I went for semi-traditional colours from our In Colour families to compliment the Crumb Cake and Early Espresso cookie images. The "red" patterned paper is Sweet Sorbet from the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper pack. This is mounted on an Evening Evergreen mat, and a Soft Succulent base card.
I'm am getting so much use of the Nothing is Better Than stamp set and Love You More dies, along with the Christmas to Remember stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Labels dies. Sometimes you just need a couple of holly leaves to switch up an un-Christmas card.
And of course, you can't have a Christmas Cookie card without having the box of cookies to go with it!!
And the great thing about this box lid, is I just used up the leftover pieces from making the card. The box base is a small food-safe box I had in my (un-ending) stash, and I simply made an Evening Evergreen lid for it, and added the circles which I cut from the card front.
The inside of the card has more holly leaves and an extra cookie.
Well, I'm going to see what the other talented Art With Heart ladies have created. If you would like to join me on the journey around the other blogs, click on the box below to go to lovely Michele's blog.
