Wow this baking thing is addictive. Here I am with my second cookie card. This time I baked up a couple for the Challenge over at Flourishes for Timeless Tuesday. I had all my baking things out from yesterday so I got lazy and just did more gingerbread.
The cookies are 4 layers of paper, stamped and embossed. They are then inked to resemble my usual burning things, sugared, and I put some dragees on for buttons.
This card is not going to tickle a teapotter.

This is very pretty!! I love that the sentiment matches the gingerbread people! It's perfect for the holiday season when there's the smell of pine and baking all around! I think it's funny that you even add the burned areas to these cookies, just like your real ones, as you say!!

Your card, as always, is gorgeous and exquisite! I love your gingerbread couple all decked out in white - and your cookies aren't burnt - they are most definitely perfect! I love the bells, sentiment and your BG paper.
