Christmas Goody Box

Today I'm using one of Karen Lockhart's new holiday stamps called Cookies for the Neighbors. It's a fun little image to color because it's full of Christmas cookies.....my favorites are frosted sugar cookies of the soft variety with fluffy frosting and sugar sprinkles. I colored the main image with Copic Sketch markers and then used a glitter pen to add shimmer to some of the cookies. To the main image, I added the Lockhart *celebrate the season* sentiment and a Papertrey sentiment from Peaceful Poinsettia. I stamped around the main image with Papertrey's Vintage Label in Pure Poppy. The image was cut with a Spellbinders Labels 1 die template. I love how the image is front and center on this card. So cute! On the inside of my card, I lined it with more Vintage Cream paper that I used for the main image. When my base card is a dark color, I sometimes like to line the inside with a lighter color so that writing shows up better. I stamped more Lockhart images on the inside and colored them with Copic Sketch markers. Using the green marker, I made some dots along the curly border. Shimmery pen was added for some holiday glitz.
Below are the Copic Sketch colors I used to color my image:
Hope you're ready for the holidays cuz here they come!! Have a great week everyone! Thanksgiving vacation starts tomorrow for us, woohoo!!

I was just debating on the cookie stamp at my local store the other day, no more question about it. This is completely cute. Is that Jolly by Golly paper?
I will miss you over the Holiday weekend, I look for inspiration on your site every morning.

Best wishes to you and your family!
