Cookie Monster Card for Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge Guest Designer

Hello Winter!  Well winter is technically not for a week or so, however, that is the challenge this time around at Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge where I am currently guest designer.  I love using my Sesame Street Cricut cartridge to make kid friendly cards.  The cuts are fairly intricate but are so spot on.  This may be the first time I have created a Cookie.

When I was a child my first alarm clock was a Cookie Monster clock with an oven and cookies. I loved to wake up!  For the background I used some very old Creative Memories printed paper.  I thought the colors were very winter~y.  I used a manual die cut circle to back the Cricut cut.  I love my Cricut but I will never stop using my manual die cuts.  I love the texture you can achieve with the manual process.  I always emboss after cutting if that is an option with the die.  I will then ink the edges to highlight the dimension.
