SNS Cookie Challenge



I created this card for a Sweet N Sassy Christmas Cookie challenge. We each picked 5 ingredients that were listed for making Christmas Cookies, and then a few days later, we were told what each ingredient was equal to as far as card-making. I picked:

Chocolate Chips -- brads
Vanilla -- scallop edge punch
Nutmeg -- corner punch
Butter -- watercoloring
Flour -- chipboard

Yikes! How was I gonna make a card with all that on it??? Two punches?? But I persevered and came out with this card. You can clearly see the brads, the scallop edge punch, the ticket corner punch (where the brads are) and the big star chipboard. The watercoloring is on the little holly leaves and berries below the sentiment. I had finished my card, only to find that I had NO watercoloring on it! Ack! So I searched around for something that I could add to the card AND that I could watercolor. This little image of leaves and berries fit the bill.

For good measure, I also had ribbon, thread, a button, designer paper, and distressing on this card as well. Don't fall down, Mom!!! :-)

Stamps: Christmas Peace (Paper Inspirations), Sleigh Bells Ring (Stampin Up!)
Ink: Artichoke, Riding Hood Red
CS: Artichoke, Kraft, Wassail dsp (Basic Grey)
Other: scallop edge punch, ticket corner punch, aged copper brads, distressing tool, star chipboard, red button (Basic Grey Wassail collection), linen thread, organdy ribbon (stole from Mom's stash - hee hee), aquapainter, sanding block, 1/16" hole punch, dimensionals, mini glue dots, glue dots
