"C" is for Cookie

Hi Everyone! Today's post is a shape card I made from the cartridge Sesame Street Friends.

All cuts were designed on the gypsy at the following sizes:

  • cookie shape @ 5.11 w

  • cookie shape @ 5.11 w with the chocolate chips hidden using the hide/contour feature

  • cookie top layer @ 4.81 w

  • cookie monster shadow @ 2.02 w

  • cookie monster @ 1.91 w

  • sesame street sign @ 2.35 w

  • sesame street sign @2.14 w

Once all the cuts were made (SU cardstock in Close to Cocoa, Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Basic Black and Whisper White), I used the cuttlebug folder "swiss dots" to emboss the crumb cake top layer of the cookie. I also sponged the edge of the cookie base in Early Espresso for added dimension. The brads are SU from the bold brights collection. The font I used is from the internet called "cookie".

Once all the cuts were layered and adhered, I simply used red tape to stick the layered top cookie to it's "hide/contoured" base on the left side.

You can make a shape card virtually out of any shape using your gypsy. If there is a blackout cut, you don't even need to use the hide/contour feature for the base of the card. You can also weld the two shapes together after flipping your base as a third option.

Have fun creating!
