Made with White Meat

Recently, I was commissioned by my friend Liz to create a wedding card.  Here it is:

The photo doesn't do this card justice.  It's very difficult to see the Champagne shimmer mist paint.  I mixed some of it with alcohol and sprayed the embossed layer.  Trust me, it's on there!  For the sentiment, I misted the Very Vanilla layer and cut two extra Night of Navy wide ovals to layer behind it.

Stamps:  Occasional Quotes (hostess level 3)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy
Accessories: Big Shot, Elegant Lines textured impressions embossing folder, Wide Oval punch, vanilla taffeta ribbon, Champagne shimmer mist paint, dimensionals

I'm babysitting Liz's three kids while she and her husband attend the wedding.  Even though it's only in the mid 40's, all the kids played outside for a while while I made cards.  Tonight my kids were SO excited to have chicken patties and French fries for supper.  I didn't feel too guilty about it because it was an easy dinner to "prepare" for seven kids.  That's not the kind of meal I usually make for them.  I wonder what the label "made with white meat" really means.  Now the entire living room floor is covered with hundreds of Thomas train tracks.  Some of them are playing with the trains while other are just watching TV.  It's a fun night at the Carlson household. I'm sure my kids are going to ask for chicken patties for dinner in the near future.  Gonna have to explain why I don't often feed them stuff that's labeled "made with white meat."

Happy stamping!

Such an elegant card! If the kids ask, say you served white meat to go with the white card in honor of the wedding!

Nice, nice, nice! You know, we really need to do some simple color layouts like this more often. I'm making a mental note to do that during my next Workshop with the beginners.

That is a very pretty, simple card. I like how you can make such a beautiful card without alot of colors, or embelishments. TFS!
