You're a lifesaver!

Verve has a wonderfully fun new set this month called *Sweet On You*. And it's filled with fun sentiments that go well with different candies. I chose to use *You're a Lifesaver* and made my own lifesaver candies with circle Nestabilities. I just layered the smallest circle inside one 2 sizes larger, cut, then embossed. I then coated them with Diamond glaze (JudiKins). When it was almost dry, I used my JustRite 1 3/16" circle stamper with the 15 pt. Times Roman font and stamped *Lifesaver* into the glaze. I think they look like lifesavers don't you? The bg is embossed with the Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug Folder, and the stitched grosgrain was stapled on. The corners were punched with the SU Tag Corner Punch, and the dots in the corner are Black Candy Dots (Pebbles, Inc.)

That about sums this card up. Thanks a bunch for stopping by!!
Have a wonderful week of Happy Stamping!!
Tosh
