Christmas Cookies!

Happy Black Friday Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne sharing today.  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now it's time to get ready for Christmas.  The Scrapping Cottage has a Black Friday sale going on right now with great deals.  You'll want to shop early for the best selection!

Now on to today's post.  Even after my Thanksgiving cooking/baking I'm still in the mood for more.  It must be that time of year.  So I made a card featuring the Handmade Cookies dies.
To start I cut all the pieces from Kraft card stock and white glossy card stock.  I used glossy stock to simulate white icing.
Then I used Multi Medium Matte to glue the icing to the cookies.
I used the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die to cut a white rectangle and adhered that to a piece of red card stock.
I have a guide that allows me to cut a mat in various sizes larger than a rectangle or square panel (I'm afraid I have forgotten what it is called).  In this case I cut the red 1/16th inch larger than the stitched panel.  I then mounted that to an A2 size piece of patterned paper mounted to an A2 card base.
I placed the cookies on the card but did not glue them down.  I used this to position my sentiment and used my stamping platform to stamp it in red.
I glued most of the cookies to the card base, but used foam dots to pop up the tree and the angel.
Finally I added a few sequins for sparkle.  This card goes together quickly and would be perfect to make for multiple cards.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend.  And don't forget to check out the Black Friday sale at the Scrapping Cottage!

I love the red and white color combination on your cute card, especially the striped patterned paper! Your cookies look great. The glossy white cardstock was perfect for the icing.
