Fresh Baked Thursday


Would you like a little fresh-baked pie with your blog reading today?!  :^)  

Today's card is intended to accompany a gift of homemade baked goods:

After stamping the background pies, I wanted to mat the main image but the next level of Nestabilities that I have was too large ~ it would've covered too much of the background.   

When I began acquiring Nestabilities, I chose to purchase just the large sizes.  So instead of using the too large die, I took the same die I used for the main image and taped it to a piece of burgundy cardstock.  I then traced the outline of it with a pencil and cut it out with my paper snips.  Easy peasy, and just the right amount of colored mat!

I adhered the image to the burgundy mat, and then attached them to the card base with foam adhesive.  

The image was stamped and sponged, and sprayed with Glimmer Mist.  It's a little hard to see the shimmer, but it really coordinated well with the natural flecked background cardstock.

Hope you liked today's card . . . and if it tempted you. . .  well, just don't eat too much pie ;^) .
