The challenge this month was to create a card based off a color/sketch combo. This is the one I chose. Doesn't that cake look delicious?
And here's my card.
I made this card for our summer nanny to thank her for watching the kids this summer. I know she's a book reader so when I saw this patterned paper in my MME stack I thought it would be perfect, especially with a gift certificate to Barnes & Noble enclosed!
A close up of the "ruffles". I embossed them with Background Basics: Text Style.
And here is the packaging I made to go with it.
The card (and gift card) are enclosed in a glassine bag. Then I cut two of the "handles" using the Front & Center #1 die. One on the front and one on the back adhered with Scor-Tape. I embossed her name on the front using Headline Alphabet and then a flower using Bloom Builders #3 die. Felt was cut with a button die and then topped with a button and twine.
Thanks for hopping with me!
