We Make Quite The Pear!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with DoubleClick Skittles Design Team for the last time.  This design team has a soft spot in my heart because this was my very first design team.

I remember when I received the email from Carri, I was totally blown away.  As a newbie to the design team world, it felt great to know that someone liked my creations.

I thank Carri for giving me a chance to work with her and my fabulous design team members.

With that said, my last challenge theme is Use Button, Brad or Bow!

Take a look at my card:

We Are Quite the Pair

Check out all of the layers on this card!!  I love it.

I also love my pears!  I water-colored them.  My skittles look great in those four corners.

Creating this card was easy.  Here’s how:

1. I cut my Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf cardstock to an A2 size (4.25 x 5.50) scored at 4.25.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangular Die 2 and 3 from the outside to cut my Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolate cardstock and Khaki cardstock, respectively.

3. I used Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Embossing Folder to emboss my khaki cardstock.

4. I layered the khaki on top of the dark chocolate and then I added Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine and tied a bow.

5. Then I attached the whole piece on top of the green leaf cardstock.

6. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square Die 3 and4 from the inside out to cut my dark chocolate cardstock and Simon Says Stamp 120lb White cardstock.

7. I stamped the pears from Simon Says Stamp Quite the Pear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

8. I used my Koi watercolors and colored my pears.

9. I attached the white cardstock onto the dark chocolate cardstock.

10. I attached that whole piece to the front of my card.

11.  I cut out another stitched rectangular piece from the white cardstock.  I stamped my sentiment using Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip Ink.

12. I added Meadow Skittles to all for corners of my dark chocolate cardstock.

I love how this card turned out.  Now its your turn to create something!!  I want to see all of you over at DoubleClick Connection for my last challenge.
