Cookie Thank You cards

A little while back, my neighbor's son was selling those frozen cookie dough tubs. You know the $15 ones that are pre-formed and oh-so-yummy? Anyway, she wanted to include some thank you notes when passing out the orders of cookies. I couldn't help but make cookie shaped cards! :)

I used the cookie from Sesame Street Friends and sized the shadow layer to 4 1/4" high. I created a shaped card base  by welding it on my Gypsy. I cut the card base and the top cookie layer from Kraft cardstock and cut the blackout layer from chocolate brown cardstock.

Adding Glossy Accents to the chocolate chips really helps then stand out and look yummy. The more layers of Glossy Accents you add, the more dimension the chocolate chips will have.

I like to weld shadows to create shaped cards, but I hate the flat spot that the fold creates, so I always cut another layer for the card front to cover it.

The inside is stamped using a TPC "Greetings" stamp set and Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I made a dozen of these cards. I hope that's enough, but they really are super easy to recreate if need be... that's another reason why I love my Gypsy.

What a great thank you card and so appropriate too. I like your tip about cutting an extra piece to hide the fold thanks for sharing that idea.

cheryl, those cards could not have been more appropriate! I also do the extra layer to cover the mis-shape of welding forms together. It is a good trick.
