Here is BBQ card #3. I used the Elegant Step-Up Card Die for the base of this card. All of the paper is from the Gold Club Kit. I used a pre-colored image for the BBQ pit and die cut the utensils with silver mirror paper. I pop dotted the sentiment on the inside in order to hold up the easel feature of the card. Not much else to say about this one. I finished it very quickly.

After my brain freeze over the weekend, I decided to take action. Saturday I was staring at this BBQ stamp and die set, matching patterned paper, and embellishments with not one idea surfacing. I decided to make an "Idea Jar". I cut 1" x 2" pieces of card stock and wrote all sorts of ideas to give me a boost when I am stuck. I just looked around the room -- ribbon, embossing folder, names of fancy folds, some dies that could be used with any topic, etc.
When I had a healthy stack of cards to throw in my jar, I drew. I got "SHUTTER CARD", and here it is:

I had made 10 cards using The Stamps of Life "Birdbath" Die Hard sets and monthly kit back in April, but never completed the insides of the cards. Yesterday I spent the morning finishing those. I then decided to put the kit up. that means putting the paper, embellishments, etc into stash and move on to the next month of stamps, dies, and kit. That brings me to the BBQ pit. I just couldn't get an idea to start a card. I saw this layout sketch on Sketch N Scrap and shifted my thoughts to making a layout. This layout is made predominately with TSOL products.

The cooking utensils are die cut from silver mirror card stock and I added some Velvet Night ends to give them interest.
The intended use for the oven mitt is as a shape card. I thought it would be great if it opened with extra pictures and journaling.
