A Custom Creation: Fresh Baked Birthday

Available at Arts Plus Gallery (because I made two of these!)

Hi there!  A colleague of mine requested a custom birthday creation recently.  The birthday girl, I was told, is really into baking her own bread, and she is fun and a bit eccentric.

Believe it or not, I have a bread stamp in my stash!  Yessss!  It's from an old Close To My Heart set called Tasty Treats. I thought a loaf of bread would go good with some cherries (patterned paper from Stampin' Up!); after all, they both come from the kitchen. :-)

First, I die-cut a doily (My Favorite Things Decorative Doily Duo) and stamped the bread on it, then colored with Copic markers. I used craft foam behind it, then layered this onto a die-cut Mini Scallop Circle (also MFT).  The tiny cherries were trimmed from a piece of patterned paper that coordinates with the black-background pattern featured on this card.

I added a thin red strip of cardstock where the cherries pattern meets the kraft cardstock base, and added two red rhinestones...reminiscent of freshly-washed cherries!

Thanks so much for joining me here today!  May God bless you!

Super cute! Love that little loaf with the cherries. And perfect on the kraft. The little doily is pretty, too. I adore this!
