Fresh Baked Color Inspiration



I made this cute little card for Kristen Werner's Color Inspiration #55. The colors were grey, rust, mustard and cream.

The gingerbread man is from a wonderful set by Waltzingmouse Stamps called Half Baked. I embossed the card with the swiss dots Cuttlebug folder and used the Labels Two by Spellbinders and oval Nestabilities for the framings. I added a little piercing on two sides and brads to the corners.
I fooled around with the layers a lot before finally attaching them all like this. And after I was done I realized that it looks like the little man is on a grey cookie sheet right out of the oven! A not planned fun design outcome!
ETA: just found out that they've extended the cut off date for registration to Thursday for the Stamping Around Workshop in Farmington CT - so check that out if you are interested!!

LOL, I LOVE that kind of serendipity! Your card is adorable - it does look like a cookie sheet - and I LOVE that you confessed that it was an "accident" - and here I've had you on a pedestal all this time (still do - don't worry).

Julia my box is actually for someone who visits my blog all the time so I couldn't say who it was for! I have some goodies inside and a cute card that matches but didn't want to give too much info away!
