Fresh From the Oven

Happy Friday!  Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?  How about doing a little baking?  Or for those who don’t bake you can always just make a card with a sweet little baker image like this darling. :D


Per my usual stamping/coloring technique I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers.  After trimming the cardstock to size I sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink and added Bisque Liquid Pearls.  Once dry I matted on Early Espresso cardstock and added a sentiment tab which was cut using the Bracket Tab die from MFT.


For the base I cut four 2 1/8” squares of designer paper and matted on 2 1/4” squares of Early Espresso (I rounded the one corner of two of these).  I then adhered the matted squares on a red mat using foam dimensional tape.  To embellish this layer I added some V-Striped twill ribbon and a bit of jute twine.  Next I adhered the matted layers onto the card base using more of the foam dimensional tape.  For a final bit of fun I tied a button to a crocheted flower and plopped it onto the card.


Before I forget, HERE is a link to an old post I wrote up on crocheted flowers.  It has links to a couple of tutorials that I use for making the flowers I use on my cards. :)
