Gingerbread House of Cards

A couple months ago I was asked to participate in a cookie project. I eagerly agreed and I am so happy to be a part of this amazing project. Rebecca from The Cookie Architect is the ring leader of this project and she gets a big round of applause from me for getting us all together to make this happen. She put in a lot of work baking all the gingerbread pieces then cutting them out so precisely so they all fit together like a puzzle. Sending them out to us so we can put our inspiration onto the cookie. We all were to decorate each side a holiday theme of our choice.
My inspiration...."Intrigued by the intricate henna designs. I was inspired to incorporate holiday colors and a detailed design into one."  

So imagine 29 cookie artists from all over putting their creative talents onto a cookie that will be pieced with another cookie but different from theirs. Pretty fun right? Before I get into the final piece I want to mention this project was inspired by Charles & Ray Eames House of Cards. Here is an example...Of course this is made of card stock.
 Are you ready for the cookie version? Here it is...

Neat huh? I cannot imagine how long it took to piece them all together. Not to mention how careful one must be piecing it together. To see more close up photos of the individual artists CLICK HERE
