Freshly Made 91

Good morning, Friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! Yesterday was very nice for me! I did manage to get a few cards made and a swap finished up ready to mail. Seemed like it took me a while to get my cards made. My mojo wasn't coming together as quickly as I would have liked. And it sounds like my guys had a great time fishing! They even caught a few! Now here we are at another Monday and it's time to get some things done around the house. More laundry! Ugh!!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made. I ended up turning it on it's side. And I like how it turned out! It seems like when the new In Colors come out that the other colors get a little neglected. So I found a color combination using Raspberry Ripple. Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • Layer of Crumb Cake that has splotches stamped from Gorgeous Grunge in Crumb Cake and then sponged with Crumb Cake
  • Punch a strip of Raspberry Ripple with the scallop edge border punch and adhere to back of layer
  • Cut leaves from Old Olive using Little Leaves sizzlet
  • Stamp flower from Flower Shop in Raspberry Ripple onto Whisper White and punch out with Pansy punch
  • Adhere leaves to back of flower and pop up onto layer
  • Stamp sentiment from Petite Pairs in Raspberry Ripple onto layer and then pop layer up onto card
  • Punch a flower from Pink Pirouette with Boho Blossoms punch, adhere to flower center and add a rhinestone
  • Fold a length of Pink Pirouette taffeta ribbon in half, thread white baker's twine through a vintage faceted button and around the ribbon and tie a bow
  • Trim ribbon to desired length and adhere to card
And there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
