Burger to my Fries

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

We have a brand new release of dies in the online store. It's our Circus release with 16 new designs. They are currently on sale at 25% off individual dies. The Safari release dies are also on sale at 25% off individual dies. This was our Black Friday release. 

The Circus dies are so cute for Birthday, Valentine, Thinking of You or even Father's Day cards. Just let your creativity soar. The DT has been showing some great ideas for ways to use these dies all week. So if you missed any check back on the Blog.  

Today for your viewing pleasure, I am featuring the new Build-a-Burger die and I created a Valentine card. I remembered a punny sentiment that I had which would work well with this die image.  I usually let some of the men from Church and neighbors pick a card to give to their wives for Valentine's Day. That's where this one will go. 

So let's get started on some details of how I created my card. 

Design Steps:

I started by cutting the hamburger and fries images. For the hamburger I used various colors of cardstock to match the photo on the package. I used the following Stampin'-Up cardstock: hamburger (baked brown sugar), tomatoes (real red), lettuce (garden green), pickles (cucumber crush), cheese (mango melody), onion (confetti white)

For the fries I cut in so saffron cardstock (soft yellow) and then sponged with wild honey distress ink to get more of a golden glow. 

Next, I chose this layout that I found on the web. I liked it because I could use designer paper and add some extra layers. For the oval, I used the largest stitched oval eyelet die. Looks like it's out of stock,  but you could also use the 2nd largest die from the Stitched Oval set. 
For the 2 angled rectangles I used the 4th largest die from the Rectangle set
Next, I selected my designer paper. Then I chose cardstock colors that matched the designer paper for the card base, the oval and the center rectangle panel. The center rectangle panel is embossed with a heart embossing folder.  
red card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
designer paper layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
heart embossed layer: 4 1/8" x 1"
white rectangles: 2 7/8" x 3 7/8"

My final step of preparation is the sentiment. I masked and stamped the sentiment on both of the rectangle panels. I used a stamp-a-ma-jig for placement. 

Now, I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the designer paper, embossed layer and oval to the card base with double sided tape. 

The white rectangle panels are attached with double sided tape. For the images, I used dimensional adhesive. 
To finish off the card front, I added a few red heart sequins. 
I added a Valentine sentiment on the card inside. I used an older die from CottageCutz - Valentine Phrase & More.  
Well, that's it for me for this post. See you next Saturday!
