Happy Tuesday lovely creative peeps, it's Vera here.
Normally, I rarely use brown on my cards. But, I do love his kind of brown, what I call a muted grayish brown.
To brighten up the card, I paired the brown patterned paper with some orange & pink. This time, instead of using the stamp set that comes with this month's kit, I decided to use the cat-shaped wood veneer. I love using wood veneer. You can color them or you can just leave it all natural, the way I use it on this card.
In case you didn't know, I'm a dog lover. Yup, love me some doggies. We have two dog-kids: Sammy and Katie. Both are Golden Retrievers, both are rescues.
These two were part of the inspiration in putting together this month's Fresh Baked Kit, This + That. When I spied the Lawn Fawn stamp set Critters in the Dog Park, I knew it would need to be a part of this kit! I know there are lots of cat lovers, bird lovers, fish lovers, animals-of-all-kinds lovers, but even if you're not a dog lover, I'll bet you know lots of people who are! Why not pick up this kit and make a bunch of fun cards to send to your friends and family?! Now, our talented design team has shown off quite a few fabby cards and projects using this super fun kit and I know that's plenty of inspiration and motivation for grabbing this kit, but I thought I'd share a little card I created this weekend. My six-year old niece came to visit and she's a little shy around dogs when she first arrived. It was so cute to see her warm up to and then totally love little Katie! This card is going to be perfect for her birthday in August:
This is a spinner card, you know the kind you make with the pennies and foam tape? I found this cool file for my Cameo here. Except for the pennies and inside sentiment, everything's from the This + That kit. A super fun and simple card to make!
Go out and have a wonderful Monday -- summer's just a few days away!
Everything is from the This + That kit minus the happy birthday sticker.
I have a confession, originally my card design had one strip of that Maya Road Burlap Ribbon, but it didn't stitch wonderfully straight so now the card has some criss cross burlap! Seriously, with card making, you can generally recover from a mishap!
This will be going postal to my brother who celebrates his birthday next week.
Happy Friday and welcome to Paper Made Bakery! It's Glenda here and I have a cute little clean and simple (CAS) card for you. Little bit of colour, little bit of texture... and there you go! I hope you like it... I must admit, my mojo has been a little lacking lately!
The only thing on the card that isn't in the kit is the wee bit of twine. If you'd like to get your hands on this fun kit (see below), click here. If you are interested in getting the kit every month, check out the Baker's Dozen Subscription.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
