A Cookie for You plus another challenge card


Isn't this the cutest card!  Melanie Muenchinger designed this card using her stamp set called "Have a Cookie" available from Gina K Designs.  I recently purchased a book by Annie's Attic called "Interactive Cards" which features many cards by Melanie.  She also has a tutorial on her blog for this card here.  The card was very easy to make using Nestabilities, a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Melanie's stamp set. 

This next card is for Giovana's Friday Christmas Challenge over at StampTV.  This week the challenge is to make a card making the Sentiment the "star or focus" of your card. This card is white and silver but for some reason looks kind of gray or blue; not sure why.  I used Melanie's Munchinger's "Festive Frame" set for my sentiment.  I decided to make my background embossed rather than using design paper.  This card is 5x7".  Two different Cuttlebug Christmas embossing folders were used.  I embossed the center with the "Season's Greetings" folder then each side with the "Snowflake" folder.  I like the way this turned out.    A narrow piece of silver trim was added framing the "Season's Greetings" embossing.  The sentiment was embossed with silver embossing powder and cut out with a Nestie.  Two silver scalloped frames and one white frame were cut out with Nesties and layered under the sentiment using dimensionals.  To complete the card, clear rhinestones were added to some of the snowflakes and a silver sticker snowflake added under the sentiment.  This was a very quick and easy card to make.  It  is nice to get started on all my Christmas cards.

You still have time to participate in this challenge.  You can check it out here.
