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:
