With the end of the school year upon us, it is time to start making thank you cards for those ladies in school who made a difference. The above card was made for one of the two Hot Lunch Coordinators at our school.
I was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week and after making so many vintage-like cards lately, I thought I’d better get to making something fun and bold!
The base for this card is Kraft (or Crumb Cake). The upper panel is Basic Black and I layered it with a piece of Whisper White. On it I stamped the large splatter from Extreme Elements in Real Red (ketchup) and More Mustard (mustard). Gettin’ the lunch-like theme?
Next, I made a small tag for the centre. I ran a piece of More Mustard through the Sizzix Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and then layered it on a piece of Real Red. I tied a piece of 5/8″ Basic Black grosgrain around the splattered piece and added a big bow to the end of the tag. I then added a button tied with linen thread and a “thanks” from Thank You Kindly on Whisper White cardstock.
For the hot dog itself, I used my Word Window punch for the meat part – I used Dusty Durango and sponged it with Chocolate Chip ink. The bun is Creamy Caramel sponged with the same ink colour – this is cut out with the Word Window punch also but I re-inserted it into the punch to make is smaller. Then the ketchup and mustard is just Real Red and More Mustard cardstock which I ran through the Scallop Border punch and adhered inside. The packaging is just a Scallop Oval in Whisper White, folded and dimensionaled on. I then set it on a 1 3/4″ circle of Basic Black on which I also faux stitched with my white gel pen.
Lastly, I added a tag from the Two Tags Bigz Die in Basic Black. In the hole, I added a Build-A-Brad and put on it a 1/2″ circle of Real Red. I then stamped the cookie from One Smart Cookie (retired) in Basic Black on Creamy Caramel, cut it out and added with a dimensional. I also faux stitched the tag layer with my white gel pen.
I hope you enjoy this project!
