Send a sweet care package this winter to let loved ones know you are thinking about them…

Rag Doll Woodlands

____________________________________________________________________

With the first series released in Collection 6, we knew pairing our Rag Dolls Scenes 1 with the birch tree backgrounds would make for a fun, winter-woodlands theme.

We started by creating a CAS-style note card set with our Rag Doll Carlie: Missed stamps. Since the images in the Rag Doll Scenes 1 are over-sized, we masked off the words from the Rag Doll image so that she would rest on top of the cute mushroom.

Next we die cut the A4 Envie Liner from plain typing paper, stamped the Reverse Birch Trees background in Pressed Greige Linen ink, and adhered it to the inside of a Kraft Like a Rockstar A4 envelope.

We thought it would be fun to create a sweet treat to send along with the card. Enter mushroom cookies – how fun to have cookies that looks like the real thing!

To package the cookies, we cut a 2 7/8″ x 2″ panel of  Kraft Green felt to line the bottom of the Clear Candy Bag. Two cookies were placed inside the bag, and a stamped Topper cut from Brown Leather Satchel cardstock was adhere to close the bag. A Favor Flags banner was die cut from A Blanc Check cardstock was stamped with the sentiment “mushroom” from Fun Fungi and “cookies” from Favor Flags in Haute Red Couture ink.

To create your own Mushroom Cookies you can download the PDF recipe. (A helpful hint…twist your bottle into the cookie gradually to maintain the mushroom stem shape.)

This tasty, woodlands inspired treat + Rag Doll note card makes for a great thinking of you gift.

You’re a Doll

Today, we are sharing a card using a Carlie image from the Rag Doll Series. The cute banners they carry create a fun focal point for any card project…

This card was super fun to make, and with clear stamps creating a curved sentiment to follow the shape of the circle was a simple detail that adds to the overall design.
