Today's card was made using the retired stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Voila. I have a soft spot for this set. The little chef is just so cute. I really miss this set in the catalog. It was very popular. Most of the demonstrators I know used it. So anyway, here he is.
Isn't he the cutest?!! I so wanted to get a close up of him, but the reflection of the camera and my hand were overwhelming in the picture so this is the only shot I have. This set came with the tray cover as well as some food items you could place on the tray. There was also an accessory set that had even more food and a bride & groom. For me, I used the tray cover because I admit, it was easy to glitter. Also I felt this could be used as an invitation to any type of meal gathering or as a thank you to someone who brought a special treat for you or had you over for a meal. The biggest challenge for me was finding a glitter to use for skin tone. I did not have a blush or peach glitter and was not sure anything I had would work. I came across the one used in my glitter box and thought I would give it a try. It is called Sand. It looks a lot like gold to me but it worked extremely well as the skin tone. I used the Bon Apetit stamp from the same set on the real red cardstock. I stamped tone on tone so it would give some added dimension but not take away from my little chef. All in all he turned out better than I thought he would.
