Hi there! I’m so glad you’re visiting me today, so I can let you in on my discovery. How do you like my clay pot? It’s actually a bottle label cut with a die from the Bottles & Bubbles die set. I stamped it in Cajun Craze with a stamp from the Bubble Over stamp set. The stamp even gives it a mottled look, which is perfect for clay. I’m so excited! (little things mean a lot).
Now that I had my clay pot, I needed to design a card around it. This week’s CAS(E) this sketch provided a good lay-out.
I remembered a piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper in Cajun Craze that looks like grasscloth wall paper. On a side note, my parents wallpapered a room in grasscloth, the color of Crumb Cake. There was some bickering going on, but not enough to stop them from hanging a variety of paper in every room in my three childhood homes. I made many trips to Standard Brands with my mother, where she made her selections. I loved getting the discontinued sample books that we would turn into scrapbooks, filling them with photos, cards, and memorabilia.
Back to this card. Cajun Craze is a rusty color that would appeal to guys. Petal Pink, not so much. But guess what….. it blends beautifully, so I chose a Petal Pink card base, topped with a another piece of Nature’s Poem DSP.
The 1″ vertical strip of Petal Pink cardstock is stamped in Cajun Craze, with a pretty leaf from the Cake Soiree stamp set. A Stitched Shapes die was used to cut the Petal Pink square holding my clay pot. The two sprigs are from the Sweet Cakes die set. I used Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide cardstock for the sprigs, because those are the two greens in the Nature’s Poem DSP.
“Happy Day” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, and Happy Birthday is stamped on the inside.
So, there you have my Petal Pink, clay pot, masculine, birthday card. Keep scrolling on down to see my supply list. Have a great day!
