Sweet Treats

Morning and I am delighted to be Guest Designer at Tales From The Craft Room after winning one of the challenges.The challenge is "Sweet Treats" and I made a flag card(a first for me)I made this card for a neighbours birthday.

The papers are from The Works,and all images and sentiments were craft mag freebies.I stamped the strawberries twice and layered them-glossy accents were added to three of the images.Dies from Creative Dies.

A lovely card, Carol. Good job I've just eaten :-) I didn't know this shape was called a flag card. I made something similar when teaching classes, but it was just a staggered concertina to us, lol. You've done a great job of it!

Love the coloring, and the background is a perfect match! The inside seals the deal! Thank you for entering the JDS Blog Challenge #10! Good luck, and be safe.

My goodness Carol, you have me working overtime checking out all of these new card shapes on Youtube, a flag card is another new one for me. Brilliant, I love it and I have to say that your card is much better than any of the videos I have watch this evening.

Donna Scholz said...

What a delicious card, Carol!!! Great coloring, and a wonderful surprise when the card is opened! Using glossy accents on the strawberries (and it looks like on the pink icing as well!) was the perfect thing to make the front of your card have extra "zing". I bet your neighbor will LOVE your card! Thank you for joining us at Double Trouble this week! -Donna

CaroleAnn said...

Oh, Carol, how I love what you made here! I never heard of a Flag Card so on I went to see how it is done. I can't wait to give this a try for myself. But right now I am wishing I could poke my finger into your delicious-looking icing here and also help myself to a berry or two!!! Beautiful card.
