What a busy and nice weekend. Friday was our 27th anniversary (and we were together 6 years before that as well). We went to a movie and dinner. I very quiet and romantic evening. Then Saturday I got to stamped with fellow demonstrators at our Holiday Catalog Stamp Together. We got up close and personal with loads of new items from the Holiday Catalog. Stamping and fun was had by all. Sunday and Monday I got to hole up in my studio and design a wedding card for my brother (yes, it’s a wee bit late, but he and his new wife will enjoy it) and cards for my classes this month.
Today I have for you the fourth of five designs from my August Card Class. I had wanted to create a “lobster” bib card since the “By The Tide” stamp set came out a couple years ago. I finally got my idea to translate onto a card and just it is super cute.
CARD BASE: The base is Crumb Cake stamped with the Hardwood background stamp in Crumb Cake as well. The corners are rounded to mimic the bib itself.
FOCAL POINT: The bib starts with Real Red layered with Whisper White with the corners rounded. Adhere the layers together then cut the partial circle with the Circles Collection Framelits. Cut an 8″ length of 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon. Place a 4″ strip of double stick tape centered onto the ribbon. Place the ribbon centered onto the edge of the circle, then finesse the ribbon flat along both sides. This give the same red reveal around the entire bib and leaves ties for the bib effect. They will need to be folded in when you place it in the envelope. Next stamp the Lobster from the From The Sea stamp set in Real Red. The bib is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
SENTIMENT: Stamp have a snappy day from the You’re Sublime Stamp Set onto Whisper White with Real Red and punch out with the Word Window punch. Then pop it with Stampin’ Dimensionals for the final touch. [TIP: The image and words are together, I tend to cut them apart not trimming any of the excess away so I can place them back together easily.]
I hope you had a great holiday weekend and thank you for stopping by today. Have a great Tuesday!
