Here I have a card using the new Calorie Free set and matching dies. My Hank loves bacon. He likes to tell us, "You know how you make bacon better? You wrap it in more bacon!" Naturally this card is for him. The phrase "I love you more than" is also included in the set.  I added the word "bacon" from the Alphadot stamp set and embossed it all in white powder. The "more than" set me on a path of a math theme, so we have this little expression for him to decipher. The "U" and "greater than" sign are cut from some a super old Quickutz alphabet set I had laying around. Funny that they predate the boy this card is intended for!


The pretzel is so adorable from Calorie Free. It deserved to be chocolate covered. And in doing so, I had a happy accident. I originally just wanted to heat emboss it in clear powder. When I hit it with my heat gun, I got all these white specks. Apparently, I poured white powder into a clear container of heat embossing powder at some point. This might have been a disaster on another project, but on the pretzel it just looks like salt. Looks like I meant to do it!:) 

The box is a Silhouette cut and the flag is PS Flag Tags. Handy thing to have around. The sentiment is from the new circus set "Enjoy The Show". 


 Still can't get over how perfect this mistake turned out to be:). 

Thanks for stopping by today. I have more projects to share throughout the month, so stop by to see those.
