Mmm Lifesavers

Have you noticed that most of my cards end up reminding me of food? Hee hee, maybe I don’t always post about it, but it’s true. I *love* food. So it really is no surprise that today’s color challenge (CC221) made me think Lifesavers.


I even decided I should make circles like lifesavers, but of course, I only have a couple circle punches with me (and I didn’t want to deal with my coluzzle to make frames). And the two punches I have didn’t leave enough cardstock left to resemble a lifesaver. But as I was playing with the frame and left-over circles, I decided I liked how they looked layered. Then I decided to add the DSP but didn’t want it showing through the frames. A little work and I was able to punch out the half-circles from the paper so it didn’t show.

There is no stamping on this card as I didn’t have a stamp with the sentiment I wanted. So I bravely added my own handwriting (after practicing a few times). Oooh, I guess I did stamp – the line is from a PTI set. I had the line of dots out, but went with the line instead….mistake! I think the dots would have looked much better – but done is done!

You’re a Lifesaver!
Stamps: line – Paper Tray (PTI);
Ink: Old Olive marker, Tangerine Tango ink (SU);

  1. Hello!

    May I follow your blog, please? I looked at some of your cards, I really like them. I am just starting to get into card making, when I have time of course.

    I am a simple, no frills, not many embellishments type of scrapper/card maker.

    I really, really like the Lifesafer card. Too cute!
