You're Grate!

You know the saying "You don't know what you've got until it's gone".  Well, it's true in many ways.  Every year when stamp sets and accessories move on I make the most use I can at the end and fall in love with them all over again, only to see them move on.

The next few days will feature the stamp set Perfect Mix.  I loved this stamp set as soon as I saw it.  It has been so much fun to play with!  Especially the last few days. 

Here are the first two cards.  It's sort of a his/hers set of cards.  I love the image and sentiment, so much fun!

This is the "Female" card.  For this card I started with a traditional 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 base, scored at 4 1/4.
I added a layer of Melon Mambo 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 and Basic Black 4 1/4 x 3.
Now add a Silver Metallic Thread to this background piece and then attach it to your base.
Cut out a Melon Mambo oval using the Layering Ovals.
Cut a second smaller oval from Whisper White using the Stitched Shapes
Stamp the cheese grate and phrase with Momento ink. 
Color in the grate with a blender pen and Melon Mambo ink. 

For the Male version I used Bermuda Bay cardstock, ribbon and ink.  It's the exact same layout as the Female version.
