Nothing's Better Than Cookies Card FF103

by Joanne James18. February 2022 09:00

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have my card for the new challenge over at Festive Friday:


The challenge that we are celebrating this week is 'National Peanut Butter Lovers Day' which is on 24th January each year. Remember the fun thing is that at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion; your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. This week I used baked goods, brown and enamel dots for my clean and simple cookie card today - check it out:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Nothing's Better Than ... - I love the sentiment combinations in the 'Nothing's Better Than' stamp set - I mean, coffee, chocolate, cookies and cocktails!! I'm a tea drinker over coffee, but that would disrupt the 'c's, so I'm good with it! Today's card of course features cookies as my baked goods; the fun thing about the sentiments in this set is that they can be used inside and outside to make fun combinations - this is how I finished the inside of today's card:


... Cookies - I used a simple layered square for the sentiment on the front of my card, backed with a strip of (retired) pink plaid paper, and accented my sentiment with a couple of diecut cookies, complete with crumbs:


A trio of pink enamel dots complete today's card.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Love this tribute to cookies! So true. The colors are wonderful and your card is so much fun. Love the plaid and the scalloped frame around your focal point.

Joanne, there is something about pink and brown - they work wonderfully together.  I love the CAS design  and the added texture and pattern with the plaid and the scallops.  Fabulous card, my friend.
