love you much

this is a card I made with the new Love You Much bundle from Stampin' Up! I really like the "storefront" look I've seen on a few samples from other sets, so I decided to make this look like a bakery, with cookies lined up in the window. I had a few cravings for sweets while making this one too, I might add! The cookie sheets were made with the "L" from the love, and the cookies were made with the new heart to heart punch, which is currently available in the bundle, but will be in the new Spring/Summer 2009 catalog as well. Some of the "cookies" were decorated with Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds, and others were decorated with the pink Bead Duo, adhered with Crystal Effects. I made a string of lights around the window with the signo gel pen and dazzling diamonds mixed with crystal effects.
I made a topiary tree also using the heart to heart punch and three different greens, certainly celery, garden green and old olive (upside down), the word window punch for the trunk, and the round tab punch, cut in half and curled at the edge for the pot. I used the same colors for the shrubbery, adding kiwi kiss too. The flowers are described in an earlier post (dazzling diamonds and tinted crystal effects).
