Cookie Cutter used to have a negative connotation when it referred to the identical look of houses in a neighborhood. Who would want a cookie cutter house when they could add their own personal flair, right?
Now more negativity for cookie cutter designs thanks to Stampin’ Up!’s Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set. This set with coordinating punch makes it plain easy to create one-of-a-kind card designs featuring gingerbread kids, santas, reindeer and other winter friends. The bundle is super cute!
The Double Z-Fold Card
Paired with the sweet Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper, the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle helped me whip this little holiday card in record time. The bold cheerful greeting was borrowed from the Holiday Catalog’s Wonderful Year set of six.
Just Stamp Tips
Keep a crisp, clean design with a Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Real Red color palette. Perfect Christmas colors, right?
Create the Double Z-Fold card by scoring a 4 1/4″ x 11″ AND a 1 1/4″ x 11″ piece of card stock at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.
Fold and burnish the card stock at the 5 1/2″ score line, then flip and burnish the short 2 3/4″ end in the opposite direction.
Adhere the 5 1/2″ portion of 1 1/4″ card stock to the short flap. Be careful not to apply adhesive behind the areas that will be exposed.
The measurements for the Candy Cane Lane DSP: one 3 3/4 x 5″ piece; two 2 1/4 x 3 3/4″ pieces; one 3/4 x 10 1/2″ piece.
Adhere the gingerbread kids with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Everything else is adhered with flat adhesive (SNAIL, Fast Fuse, Mini-Glue Dots, Tombow, etc).
