Iced snowflake {biscuits}

I had a few Challenges going through my head when I came up with this card. I have really been inspired by the neutral-based Christmas Challenges doing the rounds. I just love white on kraft, and any opportunity to use it, I will.

CASology‘s cue word of ‘snow’ was still in the forefront of my mind. CAS on Sundays had a Christmas theme. The images from  Simon Says Stamp-Winter Inspiration. were still beckoning, particularly the snowflake and mittens holding the pine-cone.


And then I saw this beautiful image from Just Add Ink which I discovered on Shona‘s blog.  The neutral palette, wood accents and snowflakes sitting on the bookshelf caught my attention.

So, with all of this inspiration, what went through my mind? Iced biscuits. More precisely, thin, crisp shortbread snowflake biscuits. The ones decorated with a thin layer of white chocolate or royal icing. I sampled (part of) one at a family Christmas picnic a couple of weeks ago, and it was delicious. My sons thought so too, hence me only getting the point that had broken off in the bottom of the paper bag.

Here’s my take, also inspired by this beautiful picture of the real thing (located at the Simply Social blog, from this post). I would love to bake these biscuits!


I haven’t had a chance to bake any this year. Hope you have!

Thanks for visiting!
