FM236 Oh Gingerbread, My Favorite Cookie

For this week's Mashup, running for two weeks, we are playing with Christmas cookies.  I don't have a ton of cookie images.  Almost none, in fact, but I do have my favorite cookie image... a gingerbread man!  Every year we make my great-grandmother's cookie recipe.  Real molasses and super-fattening frosting... oh, they are soooo good!

I again turned to Sunday Stamps sketch #114 for this card.  Fairly clean background with a bit of texture, most of the business is happening up front in the focal element.  Lots of fun little cluster embellishments.

I left this card generic so it could act as a Christmas card, winter card, or even birthday card.  Who doesn't like a sweet treat and hot drink when it is snowing?!

This week's Mashup Challenge:

  • Create a project inspired by Christmas Cookies.
  • Create a project with Dies.
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project using Christmas Cookies and Dies.
