Cool Treats

cool-treats-4We are once again having semi-nice weather here in Ohio.  Yesterday it was almost 50 here and my husband and I decided to take our little doggies for a walk.  Now the youngest one had never been on a walk before on a leash and have to say…he really did good…I only had to carry him for a short distance.  Those little legs had to work so hard!  LOL!!!

Special Reason

ccmc443Happy Thursday everyone and it is the first Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration of February.  This week we have a fun sketch and I thought I was being SOOO clever using the Special Reason set…well until I saw that other design team members though the same thing!  Great minds think alike!  I’m still using that one piece of Crumb Cake/Copper specialty paper so it was my inspiration for my card!

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp the greeting using Versamark and copper emboss, layer onto Copper Foil 3 3/4 x 5 (I do cut out the center of the foil piece leaving a 1/2 frame around and attach that to the back), add to card front using dimensionals
  • Crumb Cake/Copper specialty dsp – 1/2 x 3 5/8, add to card front
  • Copper Foil – cut out 2 large outline leaf and 2 small outline leaf, and 1 large flower center and 1 small flower center
  • Very Vanilla – cut out solid large flower, stamp smaller flower in Crumb Cake and cut out using matching framelit, add small copper flower center to the small flower
  • Crumb Cake – cut out outline large flower, layer on solid Vanilla piece, add copper flower center
  • Layer everything onto card front (small flower was added using dimensionals

Don’t forget to check out the great designs from our design team – Create with Connie and Mary.

Set(s): Special Reason
