Good Monday Morning!
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter, safely in your homes.
Today I'd like to share a card I made for a Swap/Challenge. The challenge was to make a card with a Kitchen or Oven theme. I had recently purchased the Stamping Bella Bundle Girl Tea Party and was determined to make it work for this swap card. Finally I decided to add a recipe so the front of the card could be removed by the recipient.
Here's what I came up with and a few directions for yours.
It truly turned out adorable ~ Don't you think?
I stamped the image on Neenah 110# card stock and used my Copic markers for coloring. I used a Spellbinder die to make the scalloped rectangle. I found what read like a yummy Carrot Cake recipe and typed it up with Underlines so that it resembled a recipe card.
I covered the front of a 5 1/2" square card base with a dark green mat and cut the stamped sentiment with a stitched fish tale banner. I quickly realized the image needed grounding, so I cut a 1" wide strip of orange striped paper for the image to sit on and to give it some space from the recipe. Finally I adhered the sentiment and added a small orange enamel dot to complete the card.
A quite amazing story unfolded when my swap partner received the card too. Turns out she gets a Carrot cake (her favorite) from her Mother-in-Law every year and it's this exact recipe with the pineapple! God loves to do things that make our jaws drop!
Thank you for stopping by today. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not JustScraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards and other crafting items.
I’ll be entering this card in the following challenges:
