Cookies for Santa 
by Anne Thompson

Some of the dies in the Christmas 2022 Collection reminded me of the decorated gingerbread cookies I used to make with my mom for the holidays.  Today's card features a plate of cookies for Santa made with FEATHERY SNOWFLAKE DISCS 94681, STARBURST SNOWFLAKE DISCS 94679, and ALPINE SNOWFLAKES 94680 with an extra large cookie tucked inside the card made with the CELESTE SNOWFLAKE 94697.





to make this card

  • cover the front of a white notecard with a red plaid paper from JOLLY CHRISTMAS PP1019
  • use two circles from the CIRCLE BASIC SET 30087 to make a white cardstock plate and add it to the card front
  • to make the cookies, cut the outline for the CELESTE SNOWFLAKE 94697, the FEATHERY SNOWFLAKE DISCS 94681, and the STARBURST SNOWFLAKE DISCS 94679 from a light brown cardstock--I used the KRAFT WOODGRAIN PAPER SH44003--leaving all of the little pieces in place
  • use a sponge dauber to add a little brown ink on the cookie edges--I used VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink--our cookies were always a little well-done...
  • cut the ALPINE SNOWFLAKES 94680 and both of the snowflakes discs from white cardstock; punch the snowflakes from the centers of the disks
  • use a glue pen to add the detailed snowflakes to the centers of the cookies; add a few tiny pearls for  decorations to cover the tiny oval indents 
  • select the cookies that look the best--some of mine were a little burned--and add those cookies--I used three-- to the plate and tuck the large Celeste Snowflake cookie inside the cardIMG_3926-ink IMG_3929-ink
  • using the clear stamp "Hope your Holidays are Sweet" and red ink--I used VersaFine Clair Tulip Red--stamp it on a scrap of white cardstock; mount this on a scrap of a different red plaid paper and add it to the card



  • to finish the card, make a tiny tag and write " for Santa" on it in red ink and attach it to the plate


Yum!  This would be a cute card to use for a cookie swap invitation or to attach to a bag of cookies you made as a gift for a friend or neighbor.  I do think that for the next batch I make I'll add more layers under each cookie so they look a bit more substantial and three-dimensional on the plate.  I do love how the white details look like royal icing.  And the pearls remind me of dragees, those hard silver balls Mom used to put on cookies and cakes for decoration that really were inedible.  

Happy Crafting!
