Sandwich Cookie Card Tutorial: 2 Ways

I'm going to be swamped with new release stuff (in a good way!) the next several days, so this will be my last cookie project for awhile, I think it's good one, I hope you agree! These big sandwich cookies are SO cute and so easy to make!! ( and fit in an A2 card)
"We go together" reads the top...

and opens sideways to reveal "like milk and cookies..." All images and greetings here are from the "Have A Cookie!" set :)
The card above uses the design you see on the right below. To make this one, take your largest scalloped circle Nestabilitie and lay it just a bit over the score of a folded 4 1/4" square card and run through your die cutter. Now you have two scalloped layers that are attached. Cut out smaller classic circles in brown and white, layering the white circle inside for your "cream filling" and emboss a texture on the smaller brown circle (here Cuttlebug Textile folder) and adhere to top of card.

The design on the left is a "twist off" just like you may (still!) do with your Oreos! (True Story(NSR): when I was little I was at my mom's friend house, and she told me I could help myself to the cookies while the two of them visited. Well! "Help myself" meant to open every Oreo in the brand new family size pack, eat the filling and put the cookies back in the bag!! Boy, did I get in trouble!! I was such a rascal!!!*) Here, create two separate Chocolate Chip scalloped circles, and do the same as you did in the the other design for the inside and out layers.

Once you've added your embossed top to the outside, and "cream" to the inside, hold them together and punch with your 1/16" circle through all the layers near the edge and insert your brad (Antique Brass) Now twist to reveal a greeting you've stamped inside!

As you can see I adhered two layered SU! punched ovals to both cookie tops with greetings from my set. Aren't these fun? (Don't they look almost as good as the real thing??) :) I plan to make these on occasion to throw in my son's lunch box as a surprise :) (maybe Dh's briefcase...? ! maybe send to that friend of my mom's?? "Remember me??" BWAHHH!!! ;)
Enjoy!!
*check me out at age 4, see that sly grin...? (I'm up to something!!)

I love this Melanie. Oreos are my favorite store bought cookie. It's funny that most people prefer the cream filling. I prefer the cookie. And definately prefer regular over double-stuff(way too much filling for me). LOL! Thanks for sharing the instructions. If I ever get Nesties, this will be the first thing I make.

WOW- an OREO card. DH would tell you that Oreos are on the shopping list EVERY week- I have always loved them!

You are SOOO creative! I will definitely be stealing THIS idea!

Bee said...

Oh boy I LOVE those Oreos cookie cards! So darn clever and awesome!! Really look like the real thing!!! You could even make them like little booklets with white pages inside, so that the "filling" is thicker. :-)
Your story at your Mom's friend's house just cracked me up, you should definitely send her one of those! I'm sure she'd have a good laugh about that!

Yum yum yummy cards! :-P

Great ideas. Don't have the Circles but I do have squares to try for a scallop card that stays together.

That is TOO funny! I love that you ate all the insides and left the outsides. Funny!

This card is so cute.

Oh no! You sound like my brother! We had to stay with frineds of my dad's family and in the morning while my mom was dealing with the baby, my then 4-5yr old brother talked the couple into opening about ten boxes of cereal they had in storage "for their grandkids" until he made up his mind which one he wanted!
I LOVE this cookie idea! Sooo cute!

Yummy card!!!

Holly said...

Well I thank you for this wonderful idea because I have been wondering what to make for a valentine's card! This is just adorable.

OMGoodness! I love this idea! I was noticing the design on the oreo the other day, but not long enough to have an 'aha' moment. They don't last long in my house either. We'd make a great pair, I prefer the chocolate part and not the creme. teehee! This card is incredible!!!
