Warm Wishes with Pie

Now, I’m going to say something that might be a bit controversial…I’m not really a fan of pie. ¬†ūüė≤¬† Pie filling? ¬†Yes (most). ¬†Pie crust? ¬†Nope. ¬†I need a pie with either a crumb topping or no top crust…and I’m so sorry if saying that means I’m letting you down.

I do, however, love looking at¬†those fancy lattice, braided, or other decorative crusts you see in magazines, so I was super excited to make this adorable little pie die from Crafter’s Companion (still available at HSN.com) the center of attention on this card.

The pie itself was cut from some pale yellow cardstock and inked with red and brown inks so that it would resemble a cherry pie. ¬†Then I created a “window sill” by cutting the scalloped circle and frame from white cardstock using the “Beautiful Baby” die (Sara Signature Little Angel Collection) and applying blue and grey ink.

The patterned paper is a sheet from the “Birthday Party” 6×6 pad¬†(Sara Signature Birthday Party Collection). ¬† I layered this onto some dark teal cardstock and tied a quick organza bow around the whole panel before adhering it to a 5″ x5″ white card base.

I hope you enjoyed this sweet card project and thanks so much for stopping by today!  What kind of pie would you turn this little die-cut into?
