Making the Card
I know the supply list looks long, but that’s because I used one little detail from several different products when I added final embellishments to the card. But first, I created my pie just like I did yesterday. I just used a different crust – this one has a bunch of steam holes on top. I inked up the pie with the same Distress Inks – Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.
I then made my cute little box. It is very easy to make, thanks to the score lines that the die creates. I added some acetate to create a little window just like a real treat box would have. I assembled my box using Scor-tape. I adhered my pie to a square piece of white card stock the same size as the box, and then I adhered the box to that, so it really is a tiny little box with a pie in it. So cute! I took some white string and wrapped the box with it, securing it on the bottom with Scor-tape.
Next, I prepared my background. I used another new embossing folder – this Loops Embossing Folder is the same large size as the one I used yesterday. I love it! I inked up the white, embossed panel with Fresh Pear ink from Pinkfresh Studio, and then I went a little heavier around the edges with Grassy Knoll ink. I adhered this panel to a white card base. This card is a little larger than A2 because the embossed panel itself is A2-sized.
Time for sentiments and the little details! The main sentiment comes from the Sugar Coated Sentiments stamp set. I stamped it with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the sentiment die from the Everyday Sentiments II hot foil plate & die set because it happened to be the perfect size to cut out this sentiment. I then mounted that on top of some green and white card stock to make the sentiment stand out a bit more.
Have you ever stamped with hot foil plates? I got this idea from Jennifer McGuire, and it really does work! There are little tiny tag dies that are part of the Bakers Box set, and so I needed to use tiny sentiments. The perfect sentiment happened to be part of the Yana’s Tiny Sentiments Hot Foil set, so I figured it was worth a try. I just used temporary tape to adhere the “for you” hot foil plate to the door of my MISTI and stamped it with VersaMark ink. I then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Since that worked, I decided to use another hot foil plate to add a little bit of design to the dark pink tag – the little stripes come from the Sentiment Banner Hot Foil set. I also white heat embossed that, and I actually love how it didn’t come out perfect.
As a final embellishment, I used some flowers and leaves from the Mini Blooms and Sprigs die set. This is quickly becoming one of those go-to die sets for adding little details on my cards.
This card was so much fun to make, and now I just want to make more little boxes full of die cut treats. I hope this card put a smile on your face! Thank you so much for joining me today – I always appreciate you visiting my blog.
