Grammy Bakes for Santa

     It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  Our theme this week is "Treats" and our wonderful sponsor is Robyn's Fetish, who supplied images for the DT members to use.  I happened to use one which I've had in my stash more than two years.  I'm trying to do at least 2 Christmas cards per week between now and the holidays and, while this image is great year round, she also works perfectly for Christmas baking.  :-D

     I used ProMarkers to color her in traditional red and green, and then used my newest die set (Pinpoint Rectangles from Memory Box) to cut out the image and the two CS rectangles.  I used very narrow ribbon from my stash to wrap each colored rectangle.  The sentiment was computer printed and matted with both red and green.  I added the sparkly holly leaves for embellishment, leaving the card both CAS and very flat for ease in mailing.

Oh cookies, yum! Your thin ribbons make it look like that are two wrapped gifts planking the sides of this very nice image and sentiment. Love those holly leaves also. Have a good cookie kind of day.

What a lovely image, I quite fancy its design, perfect for non Christmas cards too, but you sure made her look very Christmasy with her red and green outfit.
