Baking Christmas Cookies

I'm not a baking cookies from scratch kind of gal.  Both my daughters somehow grew up to be wonderful bakers but I can assure you that skill did not come from me!  Although I don't typically bake from scratch, I still enjoy gifting sweet treats during the holiday season.  So, what I typically do is look for a quality cookie mix.  More times than not, I end up at my favorite kitchen store.  If you know me, you know for a fact that's Williams-Sonoma!  This year I picked up their Toffee Chocolate Chip mix.  Yummy!
Once my cookies are baked, I package them up using the Stampin' Up! cello bags (item #102757) and some Whisper White Baker's twine (item #124262).  This year I put the cookie package inside the Mini Muslin Bag (item #132180) and decorated it using the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit (135813).
Happy Holidays, Everyone!

Joyful Christmas Wishes to You!

Pointsetta Christmas Card
The poinsettia really pops on this card against the beautiful gold foil sheet.  To create the poinsettia, I simply used Cherry Cobbler Card Stock, Gold Metallic Encore Pad and Gold Embossing Powder.  I stamped and embossed the poinsettia three separate times.  Then, I cut out two of the flowers fully and the third, I cut out only the center part of the flower.  Using a bone folder, I curled the edges of all three flowers to give them some dimension.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere each layer of the flowers together and flower to the card.  Finally, I added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the center of the flower.  To give the Gold Foil Sheet a holiday look, I used the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
