Little Red Bread Box

To go along with my apron card from yesterday, I remembered a cute little bread box from Mary Jo at Techno Stamper that would work nicely with the bread I've been making with the plethora of zucchini from my garden!  Now it doesn't "match" my apron exactly because I thought it would be a little overkill to stamp all those flourishes on my cardstock, plus I wanted to play with some other stamps!  So here's what I came up with:


The base is Real Red and the DP is from an older Christmas slab. I stamped the image from the PTI Vintage Picnic set in Palette Noir and actually used my Copics for coloring!!! I used the Labels 4 Nestie, with a little tweaking, for my I look at it, I think I could have done something a little different with the image panel, but it's glued on there time!  I cut out a tag from the Nestie Tag Trio--first time I broke into that one---and stamped the sentiment from the Vintage Picnic Sentiments.  What great sets these are!!!  That'll get tied around my bread.  Here's a peek at the empty box:






and a close up of the image:


This is SO easy to make, it looks like you slaved for hours--why don't YOU try one?  And visit Mary Jo's blog and tell her thanks for the awesome tutorial!  Thanks for visiting me today!  And here are a couple more birthday cards from my stash:
