This month's card theme was generic which means I could make whatever I wanted. So I made a card I am calling So Sweet.
Here's the particulars!
Carts and Materials
- French Manor - scalloped frame
- Kate's ABCs - ice cream sundae
- Paper - Heidi Grace
- Glitter - Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter
- Embossing Folder - 3 Dots (Sizzix)
- Ink - Tim Holtz in Tattered Rose
- Stash - seam binding ribbon, Glossy Accents
I embossed my card base with an embossing folder that I really like. I think it's a play on the sprinkles you would see on a sundae. I kissed the edges of the base with the some Tim Holtz Distress ink. I then cut the scalloped frame and base and covered the frame in MS Coarse Glitter. I cut all the pieces of the sundae including the cherry which I covered in Glossy Accents to give it a more realistic look.
I attached frame pieces to the card base using a tape runner. I attached the sundae to the base with pop dots. Then I made a bow from pink seam binding and attached it to the card as well.
That completed the card. 1 down - 13 to go! I had to make 14 of these cards for the Card Swap and I am proud that I finished them all in time. I did learn something though - to make 14 identical cards requires a lot of materials! I need to plan out my designs a little better to make sure I have enough supplies. I hope you like my card as much as I do. Leave me some blog love and tell me what ou think. Until next month...
