My Creative Time: Cook~N~Craft

Hi, today is Cook~N~Craft day over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are sharing what meals we are cooking or what snacks we are eating while we craft along with a project to share. I have been under the weather this past weekend so I have a yummy homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe to share after my project info. 

The Frame was cut out of the pretty pattern paper and glued onto the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die cut. The pretty Doily was cut out of vellum and then a white card stock Stitched Circle was added to the center of it. The Stitched Daisy Die was used to cut out four daisy flowers and their flower centers. The flowers were then pop dotted onto the white card stock center to look like a bouquet. Glossy Accents was added to the flower centers and then they were sprinkled with clear glitter. The leaves around the flowers were cut out using the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  The flowers were embellished with some clear pearlized sequins. The largest Stitched Banner had to be carefully extended to fit the sentiment that was cut out using the Mini Greeting Dies.  It was then all glued on to a baby blue card stock base. 

Products Used:
