Cookies and Cocoa

Who doesn't love cookies and cocoa?  That's exactly what I've got for you today!  My card was made with several new Christmas dies from CottageCutz as well as an old one.

To start my card I cut the cookie images from some cream-colored cardstock using CottageCutz Homemade Cookies 1 and 2.

Using some Ranger Distress ink (Tea Dye and Vintage Photo) I colored the cookies and topped them with the icing pieces, which I did not color -- except for the two hearts. After they were all constructed, they looked just like gingerbread cookies!

To make the plate on which to serve the cookies, I cut two ovals (one in cream and one in green) using the 2nd largest Nested Stitched Scallop Oval . . .

. . . cutting the center out of the green oval and adhering it to the outside of the cream one.

I then placed the cookies onto the plate, gluing some of them down flat and popping some up with foam adhesive circles.

I cut the cup, cocoa, marshmallow and holly from the CottageCutz Sweet Christmas die . . .

. . . sponging the "cocoa" with Tea Dye distress ink and coloring the holly/berries with Copic markers.

I then cut my cardstock as follows:

Cream - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Red - 5 1/4" x 4"
Plaid patterned paper - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

It was then just a matter of constructing the card base, adding the cookie plate and cup of cocoa.  I then stamped an appropriate sentiment and punched it out, attaching it at the top -- and my card was complete.
