Baking Card

This is the second of three projects using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) from the Gingerbread Chalet Village SVG cut file from This Baking Card finished size is 5" x 7.............I thought of reducing the card size but wanted to try this at the original size first..............I love it!!!! It turned our so cute and ALL of the elements can be used separately to make a banner (now there's an idea...............) or a Cookie Exchange invitation, Scrapbook, Thank You card, or a bunch of ornaments for a tree in the kitchen!!! The cookie is good enough to eat.

The mitt texture was made from using the SU Perfect Details Sizzix Texturz Plate, edges are sponged using SU Cherry Cobbler ink. I made a "shadow" for the wooden spoon, sponged the edge in SU's Close to Cocoa and inked the spoon using a Wood Background stamp. For some contrast, added the white CS for the tag. Old Olive tag is sponged with the same: SU Old Olive ink and then tied with Red/White twine (from Pineapple Cove). A white Gel pen is used around the spoon for a little more accent.

The COOKIE: I love that cookie.........there are four that's why it looks soooo good. The Kraft edges are sponged with SU Close to Cocoa and a white gel pen is used for some accents.
And, finally, card inside........edges are sponged with SU Cherry Cobbler and SU Close to Cocoa

When making this card, make sure an envelope is at hand, then start layering the elements on.

Start with the Spoon and tag:

Then the candy cane and finally the cookie, popped with dimensionals:
