Hi crafty friends! It’s Keiko from Happy Tree Studio and I have this yummy summerly cookie card for you! This cute cookie sheet shaped card requires no coloring and you can use many of your stamps and its coordinating dies to make these cookies. I decided to use some summer related images today, but can’t wait to create Christmas ones or Halloween ones!
For the cookie sheet shaped card base, I made an A2 sized landscape card base (folded on the top) out of some heavy weight white card stock and die cut it with the Cookie Sheet die. You just need to place the blade of the die slightly off of the folded edge so it won’t cut apart the folded card base into two pieces. I then die cut another cookie sheet from a piece of pattern paper from my stash to go on the top. To make the cookie sheet a little bit dimensional, I cut apart the outside portion and pop it up on the card base using some foam adhesives. TIP: the die creates an embossed line all around so you can just cut along this line using a craft knife.
Now for these yummy looking cookies! I went through my Honey Bee Stamps collection and picked out some summerly images (see the list below). You can technically use any images but I recommend the ones with simple outlines since you need to fussy cut them later. I simply heat embossed the images on pastel colored card stocks using white puff embossing powder and cut them all out with my scissors (these will be the icing part of the cookies). For the actual cookie part, I die cut Kraft card stock with the coordinating dies. To make them dimensional, I die cut all the images four times and glued them together and then adhered the “icing” on top. The ‘hello’ is from Bitty Buzzwords die set. I cut the shadow piece four times from Kraft card stock and the actual word once from mint card stock and layered them. The spatula is included in the Cookie Sheet die set and I die cut them from silver foil card stock, woodgrain card stock, and mint card stock and pieced them together. To add ‘sugar’ to the cookies, I applied Glossy Accents to some areas and sprinkled clear glitter.
<The Stamps & Dies Used>
Hello Summer (Beach bag, Sail boat, Beach ball, Flip flops)
Flippin’ Fabulous (Sand dollar, Starfish)
Freshly Picked (Orange segment, Lemon)
Cookie Sheet Die (Small heart)
On a piece of parchment paper cut to size, I arranged all the cookies and spatula, and adhered them with thin foam adhesives (since the parchment paper is non stick, you need to use strong adhesives!). Then I flipped it over and added some strong liquid adhesives on the back of each cookies and adhered it on the cookie sheet. To finish off the card, I added some tiny white flower die cuts (cut from craft foam using the die from Treat Shop Add-On die set) and Be Mine Clay Hearts to some of the cookies and some pink twine to the spatula.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!!
