And voila! An organized pantry with pretty shelves!
I spent my evening crafting, making a custom birthday card for a friend. I love the challenges she gives me! Really gets my creativity going! For this request she asked for a red birthday card with an angel on it, making it somewhat discreet. The angel was in memory of a little baby that had recently passed and the initials of her name spelled out A-N-G-E-L - how special and unique!
I started off with a sketch from Deconstructed Sketch and chose the colour Crisp Cantaloupe to go along with Real Red.
Here's the sketch:
And here's how the card turned out:
I love the layers in this sketch! I first embossed the white background with a diagonal stripes pattern and then layered pieces of Real Red designer paper and Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock. As an added embellishment, I bordered one side of the polka dot DSP with Crisp Cantaloupe ruffled ribbon. The angel was creating using punches and I put a little 'a' on it to represent the baby's name.
