You're So Sweet

It’s Friday!  Time to splurge and indulge with a confectionery treat.  Guaranteed not to have any calories!

 You're So Sweet

Enjoy the recipe for this card:
  • Trim a Penny Black Les Petites card to measure 3-¼” square and set aside.
  • Cut a 2 3/4-inch square from white cardstock and punch a 1-3/8” circle from the center. 
  • Draw a border around the perimeter and color.  Add Cantaloupe and Dandelion Memento inks with a sponge dauber inside the square.  Stamp the sentiment with Onyx Black VersaFine.  Tip/Hint:  The sentiment was converted from a two-line greeting to a linear greeting by trimming the acrylic piece in two parts so they could be re-positioned.
  • Cut a circle from white cardstock larger than the window opening and ink with Danube Blue Memento.  Position and adhere to the front of the prepared card.
  • Attach the prepared window frame with dimensional foam to the front of the card.
  • On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the mouse with Onyx Black VersaFine and heat emboss with clear powder.  Color, trim and attach to the card with dimensional foam.  Optional:  Additional icing can be stamped and attached for an extra layer.

Have a sweet day!
