Whew! My MIL & FIL LOVED their pear anniversary card. Well, at least that’s what I heard. 😉 Super Zippy and I were out of town getting Copic certified when DH + the kiddos gave them this card that I made them. I can tell you for SURE though that my nephew LOVED his “Find It – Grocery Store Edition” book that I made him. I got the cutest thank you video from him. SO SWEET!!
Let’s see how I made this card:
I used my Gypsy along with my Cricut Imagine and the Kate’s Kitchen Imagine cartridge to create this quick and easy card. In a recent update the Gypsy and the Imagine can now work together…somewhat. It’s not a perfect system, but they do interact. I’m hopeful for a better interface, but am unsure when or if it will materialize.
I have NO IDEA what I was thinking when I cut out that frame. I didn’t use it, but it sure was cute. LOL!
Look at me! I made a bow!! Ok, it’s not one of my top skills. Forgive me while I pat myself on the back.
Check out how I “masked” the top part of my “We are a Great Pear” stamp!! SWEET!! I just put a piece of paper under the top part of the stamp so when I stamped the whole sentiment the only part that went on the card was “a great pear”. Nice! Hey, you can buy the Joy’s Life Yummy Puns stamp set and make your own pear cards!
In the last photo you saw pop dots. Ahh…pop dots. How flat the world would be without you. Did you know that North America was only discovered after it was lifted out of the water by pop dots? True story. 😉 Well, much like North America the pears and the bowl on this card were pop dotted up. It gave the whole card some needed dimension. Pop dots + paper = a great pear pair. A day without puns would be…wait for it…NO PUN AT ALL! 😉
