Food TMR

Hi Everyone, I have 3 DT cards today, this DT card is for 

So many items possible for this theme, however when I saw this Lobster I decided to use him, I had seen a quote on a vintage card and had copied it, hoping to be able to use it at some time, and, with a little mixing up of the words I used it on my card today.

I took the Lobster into Silhouette Design area and added an offset around him, I sent it to print with the frame of the card, and then cut it. I coloured him with DI's and added a sparkle embossing powder, well it is for Christmas!

I added the printed sentiment layer to the card and added the offset frame as 3D. Then placed the simpler frame on top of the 3D. 

It may be a bit bonkers, but I am hoping it will bring a smile to my Brother & SiL, who do a lot of entertaining and he is a brilliant cook/chef.

coloured with Distress Inks Fired Brick & Candied Apple
embossing powder - WOW Clear Sparkle
border - Aveziur 
cut on Silhouette Cameo 2

this is the insert, I forgot to take a photo of the insert in the card,
 this is before printing.

This is fabulous Faith! I love the festive looking holly border too. Also you're bang on trend as I was in Ikea the other day and they had a lobster in a Christmas dining show room! Made me smile :) Vicky x
