See the NEW Class Kit I’m offering!
One of my online group has weekly challenges that we can participate in. You make one WOW card and mail it off to your partner for that week. A couple weeks ago was the second in a series of cool cake challenges! This was the cake we needed to use for our card inspiration. (These cake challenges make me HUNGRY for cake!)
Here is the card I made that was inspired by the cake. I started by using a base of Brushed Gold cardstock. Then gold embossed the swirl and flower from the Priceless stamp set all over Real Red cardstock. I cut that up for the background. I used a center piece of Kraft cardstock and layered it onto Whisper White. Then stamped Priceless in Black and punched with the large oval punch and punched a row of scallops with Brushed Gold cardstock to layer underneath. I stamped the 5-petal flower from Ginormous Flowers in Yo Yo Yellow, punched them out and added a red Rhinestone Brad in the center of each flower. I punched the leaves with the 5 petal punch using crimped Old Olive cardstock. I added them to the focal piece with dimensionals. I wanted to add a butterfly, but it was getting too busy so I just decided to leave it off.
We enjoyed the fireworks last night…the weather finally cleared up enough late in the evening to go out on the boat. I don’t recall such a COOL 4th of July…I think it only reached the mid-60s all day. Brrrr… Our friends at the lake have a grandson about 10 months old. He was wide awake and ohhh’d and ahhh’d at the fireworks! He is just SO cute!
My box of NEW catalog goodies came on Thursday and I haven’t been able to play with them! Hopefully after my son leaves today I’ll get a chance to sit down and stamp!
Have a great weekend!
