Yesterday at school, one of the teachers asked her second graders to write in their journals about the things they like the most about Christmas. Some of the kids were writing about the decorations, setting up the tree, baking cookies, and of course, the gifts. Overall, one of the things that all of them were including in their journals was about the joy and fun that they have with their families at this time of the year. I am always amazed how kids express their thoughts in just a few sentences, and of course they all love to make a colorful picture (I love that part.) I agree with them, Christmas is all about the joy of being with the family and the spirit of giving to others without expecting anything on return.
Anyway, today I am sharing a card featuring a cute mini clear set called: Home Baked by Lia. This set includes several images about baking (which is also one of my favorites things to do at Christmas.) My son Allan and I make Gingerbread cookies every year, and I have to confess… they don’t last long, because they are delicious! (We use this recipe).
- Make a card base from red card stock. Stamp Candy Stripe Bold Prints with Ruby Dye Ink.
- White-emboss gingerbread images over Kraft card stock. Fussy cut images with scissors.
- Create a rectangular panel from Snow Layering Paper. On an acrylic block, arrange small stamp images (see image below.) Stamp over panel several times with Soft Sand Shadow Ink.
- Stamp sentiment with Red Royal Ink and add glossy accents over words.
- Mat panel with Kraft card stock. Adhere over card base.
- Adhere cookie images with foam tape and embellish with enamel dots.
Making my Christmas cards is something that I really enjoy doing, and so far it has been fun to include in them some of the things that I like to do during the Holidays.
