SOG- Milk & Cookies
When Some Odd Girl launched Cookies n Milk clear set, I knew it was something I had to have. My big gift to family for Christmas each year is home-baked cookies and what better way to decorate the bags and boxes than with a smiling cookie?!?
But the milk and cookie look so adorable, I just had to make a card that features them.
I stamped out the milk and the cookie on some Copic marker paper, and colored them in with my Copics. I used a rather large number of markers for the cookie, because I wanted to get the color just right - and my early attempt looked a bit too much like skin (which was creepy).
After coloring them, I carefully cut them out and got to work on the rest of the card.
Using Mama Elephant Femme Frames dies, I cut a scalloped rectangle from Doodlebug sprinkles vellum and a stitched smaller rectangle out of patterned paper. I adhered them to my base, then added the cookie and milk with foam squares.
For the sentiment, I went really simple and stamped "We go together". I cut it down to a rectangle, then made an angled cut at the right edge for some interest.
Lastly, I sprinkled a few Sweetheart sequins around the card.
