Mercy's Tuesday Sketch 82 - Tiny Miracle

My little project today centered around Mercy's Tuesday Sketch 82.  I love Mercy's sketches.  They're so much fun to interpret.  (I didn't notice until after I took the photos that my ribbon was crooked...arghhh. Fixed that!)
I cut the scalloped oval from some pink wool felt I had leftover from another project.  I hand stitched the sentiment circle using heavy duty thread. 
Anyway, here's Mercy's sketch:
Here's the rest of my gift project....

I made the little Bun in the Oven box from Papertrey Ink.  After I bought mine, I found a FREE template  that looks exactly the same!  I added a clear acrylic window to the front.  Inside the oven, is my little sock cupcake.  Carolina has a really good video tutorial here for making them. 

I made a pocket on the top inside of my card to hold a gift card.  I just used Scor-Tape on 3 sides of matching paper about 1 /12" wide and 4 inches long and popped in my stroller shaped gift card.  Worked like a charm. 

Paper - SU Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Imaginesce DP, Neenah Classic Ivory
Stamps - Michael's $1 (love that!)
Ink - Versafine
Accessories - Prima roses, buttons, heavy duty thread, ribbon, bun in oven template, gift bag, baby socks, cupcake paper, MS scalloped border punch, SU tag punches,  acrylic tag, acrylic sheet (oven window)

Pin It!
