PP373 Christmas Cookies


Hi everyone!  It's Sunday and that means another Paper Players challenge...Laurie is our hostess with a sweet challenge for us:  Christmas Baking!  I'll be starting that this week, hopefully!  Check out this cute prompt:


I knew immediately what I wanted to do for this challenge, as I still had some of the sweet Candy Cane Lane DSP from last year, and I had barely had a chance to use it!  I found a great sketch for it at Case This Sketch:


and so here we go:


Aren't those little "cookies" cute? I cut them out of the DSP and adhered them to an Early Espresso panel that was cut with the scallop die from Seasonal Layers; the cookies fit perfectly!  My little gingerbread man is the star of the show, so he's popped up on dimensionals:


I added a stitched scallop border (Lawn Fawn) and some thick baker's twine along with a sentiment from Winter Wishes (ret).  My final touch was to round all the corners, which is always a nice finish!  I hope you'll play along with us this week.....can't wait to see your sweet treats!  Be sure to check out all the DT's samples at the Paper Players blog as well!

And speaking of sweet treats, as I promised, here are the final pix of Cassidy's Minion gingerbread house:




I have to admit, the banana-embellished roof had me in giggles!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Cassidy did a great job on her gingerbread house. She should submit it to Paper Players this week! Those bananas will certainly keep pesky pigeons from landing, too.

Oh, my goodness..two sweet treats today! Your card follows the sketch perfectly. I, too, did not get to use that DSP much...story of my life. I am NOT buying any more DSP...LOL! Have a great day.

Such a cute Minion House!! And who knew that we all needed a banana roof! I love to see the creativity you two come up with! Great job, too! Your card today is just the BEST!! I am a huge fan of "gingers" and this one steals the show for me! Love that paper from last year, looks amazing with the scallop border and the fun little fussy cutting cookies! Excellent job!

I love your card with that great dsp, but that gingerbread house is fabulous! WTG Cassidy, good job! I especially like the banana on the minion's head :) Too creative and fun! She is growing into such a pretty young lady too! I remember her as a wee itty bitty thing not that long ago!

Oh my, the gingerbread house is adorable. Cassidy did a fabulous job. My children always did gingerbread houses for the Christmas holidays. On another note, love that darling card. Thanks for sharing.

What a fabulous card. There's something about that colour combination that is very warm and appealing. The scallop edge is a great feature. A puppy for Cassidy - nothing else will be able to compare with that!
