More Gingerbread Cookies

A couple of weeks ago I made a card using the CottageCutz ornament dies and Peachy Keen face stamps, dishing up a plate of gingerbread cookies.   After I made the card, I thought, "Wouldn't it be fun to have someone take a bite out of one of those cookies?"  Thus, the idea for today's card was born.

Supplies for this card:

Cream cardstock base (pre-cut) 10" x 6 1/2", folded in half
Green cardstock - 4 3/4" x 6 1/4"
Patterned paper - 4 5/8" x 6 1/8"
Kraft cardstock
Red cardstock (scraps)
Green cardstock (scraps)
Kraft-colored cardboard
White detail embossing powder
Versamark ink
White gel pen
Red craft paint and brush
Scallop Circle punch

Cut three of the smallest star ornaments and three of the smallest circle ornaments from Kraft cardstock; then cut six of each from the cardboard. 

Using the punch, cut out the "bite marks" from one Kraft circle and two cardboard circles -- ensuring that the punches are the same size.  Then "build" the cookies by gluing two cardboard pieces and one Kraft piece together.   After stamping and embossing the faces on each of the cookies, add some extra icing with a white gel pen.  Paint a touch of red on the candy canes.

Cut the holly leaves and sentiment.

Construct the card, leaving an open space on the doily to show that the cookie had originally been there.
