Vintage Recipe Card Style Birthday Card

Here is another sample of the In Color Prints Pack (Level 1 Hostess Choice) in Peach Parfait. The large polka dot pattern caught my eye right away, and on the back was this lined pattern, which reminds me of a recipe card. Since I had pie on the mind after ordering Every Little Bit, this is the card I came up with.

The base is Early Espresso. I sponged the DSP with Creamy Caramel ink slightly, just to tone down the bright white. I cut a strip of the large polka dot DSP and layered Crumb Cake underneath. I used the Scallop Edge Punch on the Crumb Cake, and the paper piercer to make holes in each scallop.

I added some vintage crochet ribbon, Victoria Crochet Trim, around the front of the card to give it a “from grandma’s kitchen” feeling.

The stamped image is from Every Little Thing, and the sentiment is from Birthday Bakery. I stamped the pie three times onto Whisper White and once on white scrap. Then, I distressed the Whisper White card stock by using the Cutter Kit Distressing Tool, rubbed Peach Parfait Marker along the edges, and sponged lightly with Creamy Caramel ink to tone it down. Along the top, I used the Spiral Punch.

After coloring in the pie I stamped on scrap with Copics and Stampin Up Markers, I trimmed it out and attached it to the card with a stampin dimensional.

I added some holes on either side of the sentiment with the paper piercer and used a brown Basic Brad to accent. Then, that piece was attached to the base with stampin dimensionals.

In the bottom right corner, I stamped “happy birthday” from Eat Cake (retired) in chocolate chip ink to finish off the card.

Cheers! It’s a Party! {Summer Party Invitations}

I’m working on some summer themed party invitations using the Cheers to You stamp set. I like them all for different reasons but the last one is my favorite. This stamp set looks especially good embossed and colored in with Copics. Crystal Effects gives an added 3D effect that also makes the drinks stand out.

Fall Save the Date–Leaves are Falling

SaveTheDate 017 copy

This is the last of the fall/autumn Save the Date cards I made. It’s probably one of the last few fall cards I’ll be making for the year. Since I already went crazy with Christmas cards last month, I’m hitting a wall so to speak. At least until something new comes along 🙂

The card is rather long and skinny because I toyed with the idea of making it a bookmark. But then I didn’t want to cut off the top by putting a hole for an eyelet and some twine/ribbon so I decided against it. I may rework it to be a bookmark again, I’ll just have to plan better next time.

The base here is more mustard, layered with chocolate chip textured card stock. On top of that, I took a strip of kraft and punched the sides using the Scallop Edge Punch. Then, I rolled it through the Crimper and finally poked holes in each scallop with the paper piercer. That layer is adhered to the base with dimensionals.

On top, I stamped the tree from Season of Friendship in creamy caramel ink, then stamped the leaves in so saffron, pumpkin pie, and tangerine tango. Some leaves were stamped along the bottom as well.

At the top, I stamped “Save the Date” from Introducing in chocolate chip craft ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Down over the tree trunk, I stamped the information from Please Come stamp set, but this could also be printed on the computer just as easily.
