Don't Forget the Cookies

As Santa is checking his lists, we need to be making sure our lists are complete, too.  Don't forget that very special treat for Santa...his favorite cookies!  Share the reminder with someone this holiday season with this cute made with love card.  It will bring a smile to anyone's season.  Share it with your own gift of your favorite cookies even.
 
 
This card was created by making 5 sheets of handmade paper using the Papermill Pro Envelope and Stationary Kit and the basic papermaking instructions. There are 2 sheets of white paper, one green sheet, one red sheet and one brown sheet needed.  The brown sheet is for the cookies and to make them look decorated for the holidays some of the Copper Dust was sprinkled into the paper pulp right before the deckle was removed from the water.  All of sheets were allowed to dry completely. 
 
A paper tearing ruler was used on the green sheet to take away the boxed look of the card that was created with all of the straight edges.  This is a fun tool to use with handmade paper as you never get the same torn look twice. 
 

The cookies were created using a 1" punch, but you can also use any punch design you choose.  Think of how great these would look in a star shape or a snowflake shape. 

The jar was made using a matching die and stamp set.  Green Baker's Twine was added to it to decorate it for the holiday season.  The sentiment was also cut using a die and then stamped in black ink. 

It's easy to give your handmade paper a different look by using the tools that you use everyday in your creating. The paper is what makes the design.  Since no sheet is the same, you will get a gorgeous and new look each and every time even if you are creating the same card more than once.  It's all in the paper!
