...And a natural preservative!

We have a couple of wedding anniversaries in the family this week, so I made these simple cards featuring salt & pepper packets. This week's sketch challenge at Less Is More gave a place to start with the design, and I was also inspired by the fact that the salt & pepper packets that I used on the solid color card worked so well with this week's CAS-ual Fridays color challenge (Coral, Aqua, Gray).

I made a mask layer from white cardstock using a curved edge die, stamped the circle border from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (using gray ink on the white & black ink on the coral), and heat-embossed it with a mix of chucky clear powder & glow-in-the-dark glitter. For the white card, I added a bit more clear chunky embossing powder to create a splash effect. I created the sentiment "Love is the Spice of Life" using the fonts Dimestore Hooker & Apple Chancery. The banner was handmade using a simple yet fun technique from s.e.i/Scor-Pal. The pepper packets on the white card and inked with VersaMark & QuickQuotes inks.
