A Christmas Bake Shop Stop


Hello friends! I created this card for the Lawn Fawn Challenge #135 - Coffee, Tea and Treats.

I knew I wanted to create a bakery scene but I wasn't quite sure how I was going to create the bakery case and hutch. So I started looking through my stamp stash and decided that I could use the desk from Lawn Fawn's Your Just My Type for the base and then I used different sizes of rectangle dies to create the top of the hutch and the bakery case. I used an xacto knife to cut out the bakery case shelves. I used dark brown paper for the case and hutch touched with a little dark brown marker to soften the edges and a lighter brown with a little Walnut Stain distress oxide stippled on to soften that also.




Once I got those made, I quickly found out that I wasn't going to be able to make my preferred A2 size and had to go with a half fold - 8.5" x 5.5" work area. However, by doing that I had to fill in the space above the bakery case. I knew a window with a fun winter scene would be just perfect. I used the Window Frame die. I wanted the window to be horizontal so I cut off the top and bottom of the window to make it a nice clean rectangle. I couldn't use the curtain and valance dies from that set but found that the curtain and valance from the Shadow Box Card Theater Add On was the perfect size. I used paper from the Snow Day Remix for the curtains and tie backs. For the window scene, I combined to stamps from the Snow Globe Scene stamp set.


In the picture, you can't see that I used clear acetate for the window and the bakery case and in retrospect, I wish I would have used the acetate for the window also. Oh well ......next time.



I wanted to make sure I had a little mouse adding a cake to the top of the hutch so I needed a way to get her up there. I was hoping to find a little ladder to achieve that but none of the ones in my stash were the right size. I had enough space to put in shelves, so I used the shelves from Purrfectly Wicked and cut them to size. If you look closely at the picture, you can see where I cut and overlapped the pieces.


The most fun part of the process with adding the treats and mice to the scene. For the treats and my little mice, I used, Apple-solutely Awesome, A Creature Was Stirring, A Tea-rrific Day and a Tea-rrific Day Add On.


The Copic Markers I used are as shown.



I hope you enjoy this card. I sure would like to visit such a fun little bakery for the holidays.
