Sugar and Spice


One of our friends house-sat for us while we were on our American Adventure this summer and today I had coffee with her and gave her a gift to say thank you.  She's moving out soon on her own, so I got her an Apron, dish towels and a very fun YELLOW mixer (her favourite colour).  This was the card I made for her.  It uses Flourishes Fresh Baked set with this pie that I just LOVE.  I stamped it on Flourishes Classic Ivory with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out with Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die (I SO love these dies and their built in piercing.  So classy!)  

I did some pretty playing around with designer paper sewing in 3 panels on the Color Made Easy Emerald Coast card stock, adding some seam binding and a very fun bottle cap accent for the sentiment.  It's great because it looks JUST like the pie plate!  You just punch a 1 inch circle to fit inside and then cover with an epoxy dot.  


So cute!  I paper pieced the dish towel too, and coloured up the scene with Copics.  

Here's the Collections I used:








+ BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18

I love the country kitchen feel!

What an adorable card Christine! I think your friend will love it. Colors are great as always. I love that die but when I clicked on the link, it doesn't seem to show the piercing. I was wondering how you got the solid piece done without it piercing it as the white one is? I really like that design and I'd like to order it.
