Thankful in Seattle
My DH had a day off today so I baked a peach pie...Yum!! I always use Perfect Pie Crust. The recipe makes 4 crusts at a time and it can be frozen with perfect results every time. We got the peaches (blackberries and blueberries, too!) in GA and froze them. They are wonderful!
But, back to business!
I helped a friend make 9 cards yesterday. She did alot of the creative work herself on most of them but this one I did myself because we were running out of stamping time.
I sure wish Stampin Up would have kept the River Rock cardstock. I just love how it coordinates with so many other colors. This card came together in minutes. The base and image piece are Stampin Up Very Vanilla. The image is the Seattle skyline by Rubber Soul. The edges were punched using SU's Tag Corner Punch. I ran the image piece edges over my SU Basic Black pad to give it some dimension. I love the simplicity and the elegance of this combination. The skyline image almost looks like it's framed.
Thanks for visiting!
Blessings and Happy Stamping,
