I am a little late in posting my card today as I meant to share it with you this morning but got a bit carried away with doing other things & it slipped my mind.
I’ve created my card using the challenge over at Global Design Project #87where this week they have the theme of Cooking, Baking and Making!
When I saw the challenge, “Perfect Mix” Stamp Set sprung immediately into my mind. This set is from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue & will be retiring at the end of May, so this is the perfect time to ink up this great set one last time.
I actually created this fold last week. To check out the instructions on how I created this fold, please click here. It is the perfect way to use some of that lovely DSP sitting on your desk before it retires.
I decided to play with “Playful Palette” DSP Stack which is another item retiring. I think it works in great with the set. I also used the “Playful Palette” Washi Tape which is on the inside of my card & the envelope. Gotta love it when everything matches.
To create my “shelf”, I stamped random images direct onto scraps of Very Vanilla Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & coloured with the Sweet Sugarplum & Peekaboo PeachMarkers & Bender Pen before fussy cutting.
I punched a piece of DSP with the 2″ Circle Punch & adhered to the Very Vanilla side of a Lace Doily (2017 Occasions Catalogue) & cut the Doily in half.
A circle was die cut from Very Vanilla Card using the Layering Circles Framelits & running through the Big Shot before layering onto a Basic Black scallop circle which had been die cut using the same set of Framelits & running through the Big Shot.
The “shelf” was adhered to the bottom part of the scallop circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals before adhering the baking images, the oven mitt with a Stampin’ Dimensional while the others were adhered with Liquid Glue.
The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, fussy cut & adhered to the top of the “shelf”.
I do hope you like my card today, I am still undecided but happy with the final result. Why not head over to Global Design Project & play along. There is still a heap of time to do so.
