Good Day Everyone! I hope this finds you rested, feeling well and in increasingly better health :)
Have you ever found yourself at a loss for words because someone has pleasantly stunned you with their kindness? On such occasions, maybe you have been inspired to bake them a pie. Take them out to lunch. Make them a card. Or something to let them know their kindness meant a lot to you. "Thank You" is sometimes the best response they can hear, or maybe even the only thing we may be capable to give. And that's ok. :) And the lovely lady featured in the card below, Cheeky Cherry Pie managed to do it all! Bake a pie and say "Thanks" all while being dressed to the nines! Lucky Lady!A BRIEF HOW TO:
You are Weclome to join in with Splendid Stamping with The Greeting Farm's FFF (Farm Fresh Friday) challenge which is to use a Dimensional Technique in your card along with TGF images. To achieve the 3D effect for my Cheeky Cherry Pie card, I simply stamped the entire image twice, then colored and cut out the images I wanted to pop out (her pie, arm and hair tie). Second, I glued a tiny piece of foam board between the first layer and second layer (of the pie/her arm) to make it literally "pop out". That's it! There are many ways to make your projects pop out, you could use springs that actually wobble and shake a little bit, or foam board, or simply bend a piece of cardstock and glue behind your images. Whatever you do, do it with SASS!
