December Card of the Month – Baking Christmas Card

December’s card of the month is, of course, a Christmas card.  I love making our cards each year.  In fact, I’m currently rushing to finish making this year’s batch so that I can get them mailed in time for Christmas – taking just enough time out to write this blog post!

This card is still probably my most favorite ever.

I cut the oven mitt and rolling pin out using my Cricut.  For the cookie sheet I used a piece of silver card stock and folded up the edges.  The doily is just a piece of white card stock punched with a round scallop punch and dotted with a silver pen.  The gingerbread “Got Merry?” stamp was from Stampin’ Up several years ago.  I used tiny brads for the buttons on the gingerbread cookie.

For the inside of the card I stamped “Merry Christmas” and added a potholder also cut out using the Cricut to match the oven mitt on the front of the card.  I used a little silver brad to “hang” the potholder on the inside of the card.

Even though it had a lot of parts and was a little labor intensive, this card will always be one of my favorites.  I love how it tuned out!
