Food Card Set

Here's a little card set I whipped up.  The cards all measure 4 inches square not counting the circle that sticks up over the top.

The stamps are from Sweet Stamp Shop's Perfect Match.  I was so excited about these images I couldn't pick just one set, so I decided to make 3 cards.

All of the patterned papers are scraps from my Echo Park SUmmer Days 6 by 6 pad.  I had to make some design compromises to make the best use of the scraps and have all the cards with the same layout.

Along the bottom of the cards I used a Scallop Border Punch from Stampin' Up.  That piece is 3/4 inches tall.

Above that I used some Twine from the Twinery.  Each card features a button.  The blue one comes from the Miachael's dollar section and the other 2 are Papertrey Ink.

For the patterned strips behind the images they are just 1/2 inch tall.

I used my Nestabilities to cut out a scalloped circle in color, and then a plain white circle.  The scallop is laid flat to the card, with the top portion hanging off the top.  The white portion is up on pop dots.

I used Copics to color all the images and used a Copic Multilier to add lots of Stitching Llines and dots.  The little dots are all around the scallops, but they seem to be hiding in the photograph.

I'm entering this in the Sweet Stamp Shop Use What You Have Challenge.  Here's a photo of my scrap pile from this paper pad that I'm trying to use up.

Here's a link to this fun challenge if you'd like to use some of your old stash and enter it too!

Thanks for checking out my latest creation :)

Have a wonderful, and very crafty day!

Amber thanks for the visit to my blog, and I finally got a chance to pop over & visit you. Loved these 3 cute cards. Your dots on the circles did show up very nicely & I like all the paper snippets & elements you used in these designs. So colorful & cheery, the recipient will love each one. What attention to detail in each card, and loved the circle overlaying the top edge. TFS & will be joining as a new follower.
