After a short break, we are back with our Cookie Challenge at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie . We will not be having any sponsors, but we will be choosing our favorites among the entries. I hope that you are excited we are back and will use our fun cookie photo as inspiration to play along with us. It's no surprise that our first photo is Valentine cookies.
I loved this picture and especially the colors - using the blue with traditional red was a nice touch . And it seemed perfect to use a new digital set that I love from Polka Dot Orchard .
- I started off with a Kraft card base and adhered a piece of striped paper from the Pebbles "Be Mine' paper pad , leaving a small edge of Kraft showing.
- Before adhering the top area of the striped paper, I tied a piece of Maya Road "Sweet Candy" twine around the top area of the paper.
- A sentiment, also from the Be Mine paper pad, was popped up in the upper left corner of the card ( positioned in between the twine ).
- From the Penguin Love digi set by Polka Dot Orchard, I printed the LOVE cup on a piece of Stardust White Neenah cardstock and then fussy-cut it.
- The cup was colored with some favorite markers - Brea Reese & Faber-Castell .
- I adhered a red heart doily on the striped paper and then placed the LOVE cup on top of that towards the bottom right side of the card.
- All items were adhered with Tombow Adhesives - Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue & MONO Adhesive + Permanent Runner.
This was such a fun card to make and I've made several more to send to friends this year . Has the cute cookie photo inspired you ?? Do you send Valentines or maybe just make one for that special someone ?!?! We would love for you to link up a project of your own over at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie . Challenges run for 2 weeks so there will be a new inspiration photo on Feb. 21. I hope you will check out all of the projects from our Design Team members and let us know what you think . I would love you to follow my blog if you don't already do so.
Thank you for visiting Meticulosity. It's good to be back with these fun Cookie Challenges. Now please excuse me while I go get a cookie !!
