So Sweet of You

I've always liked this Zoofari card by Nancy Riley, and I thought the layout would be a fun one to use with Tart & Tangy.

The base is a 8 x 9" piece of Old Olive cardstock, with a finished card size of 4 x 9". The stamped fruit were punched with a 1 1/4" circle punch and layered on 2" squares of Summer Picnic, which was then matted on Chocolate Chip cardstock. The green stripe going down the right side is also from Summer Picnic and matted on Chocolate Chip. I added 2 Vintage brads at the top and my very last piece of Chocolate Chip Taffeta towards the bottom (good thing I have more on it's way!).

The stamped sentiment at the bottom reads, "so sweet of you", and is a combination of stamps from So Many Scallops and So Very (one of last year's Sell-A-Bration sets). I thought the "so sweet of you" saying on the So Many Scallops stamp was too small by itself, so I used my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp "so" by itself, the "sweet" stamp from the So Very set, and then "of you" (again from So Many Scallops). It was a little more work than if I would have had one of the coordinating Perfect Day Rub-Ons, but I like the end result.

Recipe:
Stamps: Tart & Tangy, So Many Scallops, So Very
Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
DSP: Summer Picnic
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie
Markers: Old Olive, Real Red, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Vintage Brads, Chocolate Chip Taffeta
