Wishing You Swap

Good morning, Friends! Another Monday... (sigh). I really wanted to sleep a little longer! But there is still so much to do! And I have a workshop tonight that I have to get ready for. Most of my stamping supplies are still in boxes so I will need to hunt for the things I will need and that will take some time. Can't wait for that to be all unpacked and organized! But we have started our new routine in our new house and it feels good! I just hope that my husband's business will run smoothly with this new way of doing things.

Today's card is one that I did for the Control Freaks winter/Christmas swap this month. I just love this set! Such clean lines and makes for very clean and simple cards!

Here are the card details:
  • Card base is Cherry Cobbler cut at 4 1/4" x 11"
  • Layer of Old Olive cut at 4" x 5 1/4" run through the Big Shot using the Style Stripes embossing folder
  • Layer of Season of Style designer paper cut at 2" x 5 1/4"
  • Layer a strip of Chocolate Chip that is cut at 5 1/4" and run through the Big Shot using the Tasteful Trim die
  • Layer a piece of Season of Style washi tape
  • Layer of Crumb Cake that is cut at 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" and has all four corners rounded with corner rounder
  • Sponge edges of Crumb Cake piece with Whisper White craft ink
  • Stamp greeting from Wishing You in Chocolate Chip
  • Stamp image from Wishing You onto Whisper White using Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive markers, cut out and pop up onto Crumb Cake layer
  • Pop Crumb Cake layer onto card and add a rhinestone to bow on middle package
  • Tie a piece of Cherry Cobbler baker's twine around a folded piece of Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon and adhere to card with a glue dot
Lots of layers on this one but a pretty easy card!
