Baking Love

  Christmas cookie baking season is just around the corner! Our favourite to make as kids were what we called sugar cookies. When we were young Mom cut the shapes out and baked them and we decorated them - often with too much icing and too many sprinkles of course but we sure had fun!

As adults my younger sister has a natural talent for making amazing cookies! She uses royal icing if I remember correctly and has created cookies for every occasion and life event. I had a chance to take a class with her last year and I have a whole new respect for her and her decorating talents! 

 Baking Ginger from High Hopes Rubber Stamps reminds me of my sisters talents and is perfect for a card for her. I have a feeling her secret ingredient - just like my Mom's - is love......

I coloured Ginger with Copic markers and added Twinkle Stickles on her "icing". I hand fussy cut her and ran a black marker around the edge to get any white I had missed. I have some fun cookie dies given to me by a sweet crafty friend and I decided one of them was perfect for this card design. Patterned paper from Carta Bella and 49 and Market were the right mix and I cut them to size and inked all the edges. 
I cut a tag and added some matching patterned paper and put Ginger on it with foam pop dots. 
Next I die cut the whisk and spoon and added the heart - how perfect are these for this stamp!? and inked the edges. A ribbon bow and enamel dots finish off my card.
