Christmas Baking

Good morning to you all and I hope you are all doing okay.

It's the second challenge of the year for our little Christmas Card Club and this time it was Maureen's turn to choose the theme. She chose "Christmas Baking" and this was where I had to cheat a little or maybe I just used a little artistic license ... lol!!! Somebody had to bake those mince pies on the little guy's plate didn't they?


I used a 7"x 5" base card from Docrafts.  The matted layer was cut from the backing card from the packaging of an embossing folder I bought before Christmas because it toned beautifully with the check in the backing paper which is from Trimcraft "Me To You".  Topper is LOTV and the dies are Sue Wilson Noble Pierced Squares and Stitched Flags.  Sentiment is computer generated and the red pearls are from one of the pound shops.

I hope you all enjoy  the weekend and keep warm!!

Take care.

  9. It wouldn't be Christmas without mince pies so your spot on. I doubt my daughter would agree mind you as she used to be a Pastry chef in a 4 star hotel and mince pie production started months before (and then frozen by the dozens )so by the time Christmas came she was sick of the site of them. This is a gorgeous card. hugs Mrs A.
