Sweet Thank You's & Congrats Cards

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

For the last several years I have joined my home ec. group in hosting the pie contest at our local county fair.  It is always to amazing to see all of the wonderful pies that are submitted.  This year I made these sweet cards (6 altogether) to thank the judges of the pie contest and also to congratulate the winners.  I took the pictures at the last minute - sorry they aren't spectacular.  The first picture really captures the card well, but it also blends into the background so much :(

 This is an A2 sized shape card (welded at the top) and the inside is pink.  The pie itself is from simply charmed, but I modified it with my Gypsy.  The original cut comes with a face on it - I hid it.  Then I felt like it was missing something - so I found some raindrops on Create-a-Critter and added them the the shell.   I put a ribbon under the shell at the top of the pan.  The pattern paper is from the dollar spot at Target! Our group has aprons that are pink with black writing - that was the inspiration for the colors.  All of the cardstock is from the paper studio (including the textured for the shell).  The stamps are both from the Hero Arts - Everyday Sayings.  Of course I couldn't forget the sparkle - the glitter is also from the dollar spot at Target.
The Cut:
* Pie (welded) - Simply Charmed - Cut at 4"
As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts.  I'll be back in a couple of days with a fabulous birthday card for a fabulous friend!  Also, don't forget about the Christmas in July hop July 22nd-24th.  There will some amazing projects and not to mention blog candy!  *~*Thanks for stopping by*~*

The "raindrops" were a perfect touch. They really add a little something extra.
You should really have some great recipes after doing this several years--or are the winners really secretive?

Adorable and totally yummy too! This is a perfect example of the reason I love handmade cards, it is so obvious that these are especially for this pie contest and you'd never get that buying a generic card from the store.
