Oh my - I have TWO FIRSTS with this card; how cool is that?? First up, I used my very first stamp set from TCP (The Cat's Pajamas Rubber Stamps); the set is called "Forget the Cake" AND for the first time ever, I left a portion of the image (tops of his little ears outside the nestability circle I cut). Oooo, so proud of ME!!
Trust me, there were plenty of other things that went wrong with this card, so I have to brag about what I can. LOL
The layout is Mercy's current sketch (found HERE); great layout and I knew I wanted to use my brand new stamps. Let me say, the TCP stamps stamp very vivid, clean and clear - LOVE THAT!!! I used my Copics to color the image and then I added the scrumptious Dimensional Pearls in Espresso - L@@K, doesn't that look like real frosting? You know, the kind you lump on a little extra so you can lick it off? Hmph, don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about...I'm smarter than that!
The inside says "Go Forth and Eat Cake!" Oh yeah! The envelope says "Forget about the cake, go for the icing"...see, that's why I had to lump a little extra icing on there!
Mercy's sketch called for a ribbon across the middle, but I had to make that little felt flower in the corner because the sewing machine ATE MY PAPER AND TORE IT. :( So wrong, so very wrong. The ribbon just seemed like too much busy-ness, so I left that part off.
K, I'm kinda hungry and looking at this cake is only making it worse....so that's it for tonight. Have a great weekend friends! Hugs, ~M.
