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. :)
