Fab Friday 07

Posted on

A good Saturday morning to you all. I hope that you all survived Black Friday! Did you score any huge bargains? I don’t do Black Friday, I am not a person that likes lines of any kind, not that many of you do I’m sure. If I buy anything it’s online, from the comfort of my home. That being said I think I will dig out the Christmas Tree on Sunday morning and that way I may actually start decorating it! I have such aspirations to make all of the ornaments on it, I tried last year and then life just gets in the way! I’ll give it a go again this year and keep you up to date on my progress.

Today’s post is for Fab Friday. This time we have a sketch challenge…

I made a bunch of Holiday cards yesterday and today so I needed to make something else. I settled on a birthday card. The base of my card is So Saffron Card Stock. I took a piece of Whisper White cut to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and stamped the greeting from the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set in Island Indigo. Along the bottom I used the Border Banter Stamp Set stamped once in Island Indigo and a second time in So Saffron. A piece of Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon goes around the center and is adhered around the back with Sticky Strip. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold the panel to the base. I haven’t used the Cupcake Builder Punch to make a cupcake in a while and thought that it would be the perfect thing for the card. I punched it out in Island Indigo and So Saffron. I used the Create a Cupcake Stamp Set to stamp it and the adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think the card would work especially great for child but could also be used for an adult too. I hope you enjoyed my Fab Friday card. Thank you as always for your comments and for stopping by! Have a great day!

  1. I give homemade ornaments a lot! Just keep trying each year. It really isn’t something you can accomplish in one year. I brought many homemade ornaments to our marriage. All the in-law’s came to see our tree because they had never seen anything like it. My family and all our friends were into homemade; beautifully hand-crafted! Good luck!

  2. Wow Justin–that chevron border is impressive! The whole card is great but I especially love that border. I may have to get that set now. 😦 BTW, I’m a fan/follower of yours here on your blog and also on the “All Things SU” fb pages. Your work is inspirational–you have such a good eye for color & design.
    (Suggestion: put your name on your blog somewhere! Up at the top would be good.)

    • Thank you so much Terri! I’m so glad that you are a follower! I love the Border Banter set. I really appreciate your comments and am so glad you like my work! Have a great night!
