Cookies of Wisdom

Today the Lady Commander of Copics had a visitor from afar who brought us some of her favourite food, native to her home village. The tasty concoction all came mixed up in one paper container with a wire handle. After we dined, the girl presented us each with a cookie and instructed us to break it open, where we found a message written on a scroll. 

I started this card by stamping and paper piecing the little asian girl from the Unity “You’re My Bestie” set. I then stamped the chinese food box and fortune cookies using the Lawn Fawn “Good Fortune” set, earning myself +192 cooking points. Using my Cuttlebug and a border folder of +20 impression, I embossed the edge of the card with a floral pattern. The sentiment I stamped using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set.

On the inside I stamped another fortune cookie and then cut it in half with jagged cuts to make it look broken. I went over the jagged edges with a black sharpie so it was all outlined with black. I then stamped the fortune scroll and sentiment using the “Good Fortune” set and made it look as though it came from the now broken up fortune cookie.

I decided to emboss the envelope to match the embossing on the card itself. I’m a big fan of embossing the envelopes since trying it here a couple weeks ago.

This birthday card will see its future in the following challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania Tic Tac Toe Birthday Challenge (used buttons, embossing, flowers)
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Inspired By (I’ve been playing a lot of Mini Ninja on my iPad, which inspired me to use my little oriental girl stamp)

The Lady Commander of Copics unfurled hers first and read aloud, “You are kind and will have good luck in a future endeavor.” She seemed pleased, but I thought it rather vague. I read mine next, “You will meet your death”...? I looked up from my scroll to see the girl holding a sword to my throat, the Lady Commander knocked out on the floor.
“Consider this a declaration of war between the Crafters Guild and Mini Ninja Clan of the Weathered Wood Mountains,” she said. A giant puff of smoke suddenly surrounded her. When the cloud cleared, she was nowhere to be seen. Why can we never just have a normal meal around here?
