more cookies, please

we're still making holiday cards based on this super-fun, totally drool-worthy christmas cookie inspiration photo at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥... won't you join us?

since we're using the pic as an inspiration rather than a color combo, i decided to move into the "concept" of xmas cookies rather than the specific ones in the photo. especially since i found the cool vintage-inspired recipe card that just seemed absolutely perfect:

patterned paper: basic grey; recipe card: october afternoon miscellany; diecuts: pebbles; badge:
studio calico; doily and twine from my stash; adhesives: elmer's brand gluetape, 3m foam tape

once again i clustered a little group of elements i thought went nicely with the focal point: gingerbread, a cup of cocoa; then grabbed a doily and some patterned paper for my backdrop. of course i didn't need to bring in any of the colors from the photo... and frankly, the teal looked ghastly... but the red, white and kraft turned out to be a nice fit, so i just went with it, lol!

why not stop over at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ to see stephanie's gorgeous creation and link up one of your own?
