{ Food Signs }

Paper: Barely Banana, Georgia Pacific White Ink: Whisper White Craft Accessories: Black Gingham Ribbon and "Textile" Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

Is that what these are called? Food signs? lol. I mean, they are signs for the food, right? I'm sure they have a more proper name, but I'm not sure what it is. If you know, please tell me! "Food Signs" just seems like a silly name!

Anyway, the surprise party is tonight and my sister called me yesterday and asked me to make little signs for the drinks and hors d'oeuvres. She said they they were going with some pastel yellow decor and wanted me to make something to match. These are what I came up with. I'm really happy with them. Originally, I had planned to print the labels on white paper layered on Barely Banana and then layer that onto folded white cards that had the big swirl from Baroque Motif stamped in Barely Banana onto it. But, Barely Banana being *so* light, it just didn't look right. I tried a couple different ways to make the swirl work (so it would match the invites that I talked about earlier), but I just couldn't. I then played around a bit and came up with this. I'm really happy with them. As you can tell from the picture of the full set, I rubbed a bit of Whisper White craft ink on the embossed paper to make the embossing "pop" just a bit more. It doesn't look quite that pronounced when you see them in person though. It looks more like it does in the top picture - more subtle, like a shadowing effect. Anyway, I emailed these pictures to my Sister and she was happy, I'm happy, so now it's party time! :D
