I struggled and struggled with this card. It took me a tossy turny night of thinking in my head of a manly sweet treat card. I really was going along the idea of trying something in the line of a pie because I can say with certainty that my man loves a good pie. Lemon is almost tops for him but I believe his Mom’s fresh peach wins out. A runner up would be apple. Thank goodness Mom left me some of her delicious pastry so that he does not have to be victimized by my less than flaky attempts. What’s your husband’s favorite pie? What is a good “NO FAIL” recipe for me to try? I’ve failed everyone else’s – why not I fail yours too? I’m game!
without further ado – my card!
It took me two hours to make this card. I could not get my Silhouette to cut the cake out properly, then I mis-cut my designer paper several times. I frittered the elements around all over the page. In the end I managed to bring it together.
The last challenge was the cake – it looked kind of barren so I “decorated” it with gems.
I don’t know which paper this was, sorry. The hand and the cake graphics are both from Graphics Fairy.
Thanks for stopping by! If you are feeling adventurous and want to see a clever card you may want to wander over to my sister Nina’s blog… and congrats her on a well done 5k too!
