Katzelkraft - Cookies Day

Hello everyone!
Tuesday is my Katzelkraft day. The card for this week is made with the fun "Rats de ville".
Today also marks the start of a new challenge at the Day of the Month Card Club, so I've combined both into one post! 
This month we are celebrating

Bake Cookies Day

Sugar Cookie Recipe (source)
1 ½ cups powdered sugar · 1 cup butter or margarine, softened · ½ t almond extract
1 egg · 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour · 1 t baking soda · 1 t cream of tartar
· Mix together the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract, and egg in a large bowl 
· Stir in the rest once this is blended · Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours 
· Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 °C), divide the dough in half, roll out to a ¼inch thick sheet 
· Apply cookie cutters to get desired shape, and bake for 7-8 minutes until the edges are light brown. Bon appétit! 

Now let's see how I made my card.

Since I don't have cookie stamps, I had to come up with another solution! 
I found the cute cup with the gingerbread cookies on the internet. I traced it by hand and combined it with the rats from Katzelkraft. I also found some cookies in a brochure from the supermarket. I cut them out and pasted one into the stealing rat's hands and the other behind the holly branche. The background is sponged with Distress Oxide inks and stamped with snowflakes from Katzelkraft - a few splashes of white acrylic paint add interest. 
I colored with alcohol markers and watercolor. The sentiment is from Stampin'Up.

Hope you like it! - See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;)
