Fresh Baked

Last week when I was teaching at Whim So Doodle there were so many questions about how my Fresh Baked tags were created that I thought I would show how I did it here on the blog.
I cut double the images in kraft cardstock and glued them together to make them thicker.  You could also use Sizzix Paper Leather for this step.
 I cut the layering pieces in heavy watercolor paper and painted the pieces with Distress Paint.
I glued the pieces together which seemed hard at first, but turns out it wasn't hard at all.  I found it was very easy to pick up the tiny dots with a straight pin and move them into place.
You could also cut all the colored pieces out of colored cardstock.  I chose to paint them because I just liked the look.

Once everything was glued into place, I covered the image with Glossy Accents and let them dry.  I left them overnight and they were perfect in the morning.  (I did pop a few small bubbles with a straight pin before leaving them to dry)
I cut circles from Watercolor cardstock using the Stitched Circles die.  Then I used texture fades to create the embossed pattern on each one.  I used three patterns from my stash of Texture Fades.  
All the color added to the pattern was done with a Mini Distress Ink pad - no blending tool, just rubbing the pad directly over each of the raised patterns.
I also created a couple of small cards with the snowman and the Santa.  I was able to use stickers from the Clippings sheet for and easy sentiment.

Hope you'll give it a try!
Now carry on,
