On to my creation!
When I looked at this set, I immediately fell in love with this plate of cookies for Santa. It brought back so many memories - not only from my own childhood, but as a mom, watching my son and daughter scribble out a letter with such excitement to that fat old man from the North Pole! :-)
This card is pretty easy peasy! I stamped my image on Flourishes White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored it up with Copics (Poppy, Spring Greens, Holly, Cool Neutrals and Flesh Tones collections grouped by Flourishes plus Y21 to shade the letter). Afterward, I added some glitter from a Stardust Gel Pen. Layer it up onto decorative paper, add a decorative punched border, a button, and some fun new peppermint striped ribbon and you're almost done! To mat up my main image, I used a circle die and one of the new Spellbinders dies called Beaded Circles. While the die was still on, I sponged some white pigment ink over the circles to give it a little extra pizazz!
Now... to one of my favorite sentiments in the set... isn't this just too fun!!?!?!
And, here's a close up of those darling little cookies!
If a peek at this set wasn't eye candy enough, head on over to see what the DT whipped up today!
