I’m getting hungry

This set makes me want to cook…and eat!

Italian Garden Graphic

Italian Garden is full of italian cooking inspired items from tomatoes to oil, herbs, and cheese! Yum! I started with these fragrant and frequently used herbs.

I grow and use all of these herbs and I just love these classic images. I stamped each one on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored them with Copics. Then I layered them on one piece on dark green cardstock before matting them on some polka dots. The background paper is from Basic Grey…Stella I think? It was a really old piece of 12x12 that I had only used a little of and it really needed some love! I tied a little rustic twine between the images and added a large gem flourish from ZVA Creations. I hand cut a banner from polkdot paper and layered my sentiment on top. I think this would be a great card to stick a recipe in like I did here and mail it off to a friend who likes to cook!
