Bake It Merry for FestiveFriday #ff0133
28 April 2023
It's time for another card making challenge at FestiveFriday this week. Every two weeks our card making challenge releases a new INSPO list designed around a world holiday. Our holiday this week is one that I think all of us can celebrate - National Eat What you Want Day! You don't have to make a food inspired card for our challenge, all you need to be inspired by 3 of the inspiration words and include those on your project.
For my project, I was inspired to use a set of dies from The Greetery called Bake it Merry. I made this card as a thank you for one of Lou's colleagues who sent us some fabulous home-baked cookies for Christmas! This set was the perfect set to create a card to thank a baker :-)
Here's a sneak peek:
Here's our INSPO list for this challenge.
I began by die-cutting all of the elements. I used kraft cardstock for the cookie bases and colored cardstock of the elements. I had some left-over "icing" pieces from when I initially tried out the dies. So I was able to add the "icing hearts" into each of the elements individually. I added some blended brown ink to the edges of the "cookies" for a little dimension. I used some silver card stock for the cookie sheet and the cookie lifter. I die-cut the rolling pin twice - one in red card stock and once in kraft. I snipped off the ends of the red one and adhered them to the kraft one. Last thing to do? Add a little gel paste to the Christmas tree cookies and add some baubles to them with glitter pens. I had such fun creating this card and the recipient loved that we sent her a cookie inspired card to thank her!
My INSPO words: Baking, cookies, die-cutting, food sentiment
I hope you will join us and play along. We would love to see what words you are inspired by. As always, the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you:
I'll be back on Sunday with my Paper Players card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
