I Loaf You

I Loaf You - now that's funny. Don't you think my hubby will get a kick out of it when he opens his laptop case to find this funky greeting? Best part? It's Simple n' Sassy and literally came together in under 10 minutes flat.

I started with a 4" x 5" card base of Textured Pacific Point and a layer of Kiwi Kiss. ( Textured cardstock is seriously fabulous - get some with the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE promotion in May. (Details HERE)

I added a Chocolate Chip print from Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series paper and zipped one of the bright polka dotted prints through my Big Shot using the Scallops #2 Bigz Die. TIP: This fun and fabulous paper is part of my BLOG CANDY give away. Using my Marvy ultra-giga punch, I created a Summer Sun circle background for my sassy scalloped circle. I ran the same die through my machine again, this time with Pacific Point.

For my little loaf of bread, part of the Level 1 Hostess Set Comfort Food, I decided to paper piece instead of coloring. I stamped the image 4 times - once onto Very Vanilla (base), once onto Creamy Caramel (bread), once onto Basic Gray (pan), and finally, onto Real Red (heart). TIP: I used saved scraps of paper from my stash... remember, recycling is cool! Some quick snipping and I had the makings of a perfect little treat. After adhering all the 'pieces' to my Very Vanilla base I grabbed my 1.25" Circle Punch and popped the whole thing out and onto my Pacific Point scalloped circle.

A strip of Chocolate Chip ribbon ties the whole thing together, while Stampin' Dimensionals add extra emphasis to my lovely loaf. TIP: I decided to allow the ribbon to wrap all the way around the inside of the card. I added a heart from Love You Much to the top panel and then created a little 'note card' to write a personal message on the bottom. Pretty fun, don't you think?

Stock up on paper in May and take advantage of hostess benefits.

Oh! I love the inside! I do that too, but I haven't done the extra step with the heart on the inside of your card! Very clever idea! And yeah, he will love it!

Yep he will definitely loaf it - so cute and how lovely to sneak it in his laptop. Hope he's alone when he opens it - have done things like this myself in the past and men get really embarrassed if they get caught receiving lovey dovey stuff.
