Celebrating National Pizza Day, Feb. 9th!


Happy Thursday crafty friends, Ashley D. here!  I know you're all counting down until National Pizza Day!  *wink, wink*  Yup, it’s this Saturday, February 9th, and it seemed like the perfect occasion to create a simple pizza-themed card, that could also conveniently double as a Valentine too.  And a gift card to your favorite pizza spot tucked inside sounds perfect!  


If you’re a foodie like me, you probably love food stamps too, and Lawn Fawn’s Pizza My Heart set is one of my favorites.  Lots of simple, versatile images.  To begin this card, I first stamped the round pizza, two slices, the box, and cutter with my go-to Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  


I then focused on the pizzas and stamped the individual toppings that would be colored, in this case the pepperoni, and what I’m calling onions.  I then colored the pizza and slices with Copic markers - cheese (Y15, Y35, YR15, YR23, YR28); sauce (R05); crust (E50, E53, E35), and pepperoni (E08, E59).  I then stamped the toppings that would be ink-only - the olives, again in Memento Tuxedo Black, and the green peppers in Distress Oxide Moved Lawn.  




I finished coloring the pizza box (E40, E41, E43, YG13, YG17, YG67) and cutter (C0, C1, C3, E35, E37, E59), and die cut all the images with the coordinating dies.  I stamped the included sentiment with clear embossing ink onto a scrap piece of Bazzill Wax Lips red cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder to give it contrast.  I cut it out with the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banner dies, snipping off the ends to make it rectangular.  



I adhered the sentiment banner and die-cut images to a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock ink blended with Distress Oxide, and die cut with Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables (3.75”x5”).  Honestly, it was a scrap piece from some two-color blending I was experimenting with awhile back.  I don’t remember the colors, but I believe it was Squeezed Lemonade mixed with a hint of Worn Lipstick, but Scattered Straw might give a similar hue.  



I adhered it to a piece of green cardstock (with a 1/16” border), and then onto a white A2 card base.  For a finishing touch, I added dots of NuvoCrystal Drops in Gloss White.  Now I’m hungry, Happy National Pizza Day everyone!  FYI – If you’re a pizza fan, many national and local pizza chains are offering deals and specials on the big day! Yum!
