Cookies and Gingerbread Season's Greetings

Cookies and Gingerbread Season's Greetings
I am continuing my Christmas cards/projects target today which I left it hanging for a month. So far, I only have one card and one tag and my target is to have at least five (5) Christmas cards/projects. Add-on with this card, I total have three (3) Christmas cards/projects in my hands now. Hopefully I can achieve my target by this weekend! *crossing fingers*

CAS(E) This Sketch #151
For this card, I am adopting CAS(E) This Sketch #151 as shown above. With this sketch, I also got inspired by The Friday Mashup Challenge - FM236 - It's Cookie Time! whereby I use both chocolate chip cookies and gingerbread man. I just love chocolate chip cookies especially during Christmas.
Close-up: Cookies, gingerbread man and sentiment
I started off by stamping the cookies in grid and leaving two (2) empty grids to stamp the gingerbread man and the sentiment. These cookies and gingerbread man are then colored using Copic markers. I randomly color the cookies shades in different directions to reflects the reality in baking. The corners are rounded and attached onto a purple card base.

Cookies and Gingerbread Season's Greetings - Inside
As the card base is quite dark to pen down message, a layer of inlay is used. Two (2) bitten cookies are stamped on the bottom left corner and upper right corner of the inlay and colored using Copic markers. The inlay is then corner rounded and attached to the inside of the card.

Close-up: Blue gems as buttons
The card is finished off with adding three (3) blue gems to the gingerbread man buttons and corner rounded the card base.
