Hello Crafty Blends
Jessica here today
to share my
3 Girl JAM
I have been wanting to work
on my CAS style a bit
and still feel like I struggled
to "stop before I got ahead"
on my card today.
I started with white card stock
and stamped the Bakery Image (by Unity)
onto a separate scrap piece of white cs and colored to match.
(to use as a bottom layer)
I then stamped the Brick Wall (by Unity)background
onto my mint green dp first.
I wanted to give the Bakery a brick wall look,
so I stamped the Bakery image directly on top of it.
I colored a few places in with my Watercolor markers
to coordinate with the cupcake border
I had already cut using my ekSuccess punch
and other colors I was using on my card.
I fussy cut the awning from the bottom layer Bakery image
because I wanted it to "pop" off the card.
I cut a slit right above the window on the green image, then slid
the fussy-cut awning through and taped it on the back.
I used a small piece of 3D foam to keep it raised.
The sentiment is also from a Unity stamp set
and after stamping it
I used my Spellbinder Labels die
to cut the scalloped edged rectangle.
I put two eyelets at each of the top corners
so I could thread
through and mimic the OPEN
sign you see in the window of the Bakery.
I used a fun cupcake brad for the "hanger" on my sign.
On the inside of the card
I used a matching purple cs mat that I rounded the corners with using
my new corner rounder.
I made a fun bow from the same Iris Crinkle Ribbon
3 Girl JAM Bow Maker
(man, how I love that thing!!!!!!!)
I added a few more punched cupcakes
I am so happy you stopped
