Pie Perfection Collection – Sweet Card Inspiration with Annie Williams

Hi there, this is Annie Williams and I’m thrilled to be back on the blog today to share a couple of projects using the new Pie Perfection Collection from Spellbinders. The unique designs and sweet sentiments in this collection inspired me to create three fun pie-themed cards for a variety of occasions.

Chocolate Strawberry Pie

When I think of pie slices, I often think of cute cafes or diners first. Here I added a slice of chocolate strawberry pie to a light and airy café-inspired background for a sweet love card.

  • Die-cut Dahlia, Portobello, Timber, and white cardstock using the Serve A Slice Die Set. Add Tea Dye Distress Ink to the edges of the crust with a sponge dauber and assemble the slice with liquid glue.
  • Die-cut Timber, Poppy Red, and Rainforest Cardstock using the chocolate and strawberry dies from the Delicious Decorations Die Set.
  • Die-cut Silver Fox and Mirror Silver Cardstock using the plate and fork dies from the Dish It Up Die Set.
  • Trim a piece of Waterfall Cardstock to 4.25” x 5.5” and emboss it using the Geo Screen Embossing Folder.
  • Trim a piece of white cardstock to 4.25” x 2.5” and stamp the “hello cutie” sentiment onto it in black ink using the Perfect Pie Sentiments & Fillings Stamp Set.
  • Adhere the embossed background onto a top-folding A2-sized white card base with a tape runner and then add the white panel to the bottom with more tape runner.
  • Die-cut the “pie” word from Onyx Cardstock using the Perfect Pies Die Set and adhere it next to the rest of the sentiment with liquid glue.
  • Pop the pie slice, plate, strawberry, and chocolate up on the card front with foam adhesive.
  • Embellish the background with Silver Mix Gems.

Ants on the Pie
