S'more Shaped Card (Essentials by Ellen Summer of Stamping Release!)


Good morning and welcome to Ellen's Summer of Stamping!


Today is release day for our exclusive Lawn Fawn set, The S'More the Merrier, and we're having a blog hop to celebrate (details below).

I decided to make a fake shaped card. 

I started by creating my s'more. I cut strips of Kraft cardstock for my graham crackers. I stamped them with one of the Pattern Play stamps for a little texture.

Then I used the Landscape dies and more Kraft cardstock, to cut my melty chocolate. I inked it with Icing on the Cake ink to get my chocolate colour.

Finally, I cut a rectangle for my marshmallow, and I rounded the corners with an old punch. I blended Sand Castle and Shea Butter ink on the edges to give it some toasty colour and dimension.

When I put it on a 4.25 square card, you could still see the card base where the marshmallow corners were rounded, and I didn't really like that look. So I just cut the cardbase to 4 inches wide (I left the height at 4.25). 

Here's a view from the back so you can see what I mean:
