Tutorial – Cheeseburger Card

I already knew today’s Tuesday Tutorial contributor was talented, but she has really topped herself today. This card is unbelievably cute. So thanks, Nancy, of Scrap Happens for sharing it with us!

Nancy made a youtube video especially for OWH, and I am going to document some of the instructions here in case some folks have bandwidth issues with playing videos.

Nancy used a Cuttlebug for her bun and burger pieces, but you can do the same thing with punches. The bottom bun is a 3″ rectangle with rounded edges and the top bun is a 3″ oval cut in half. Nancy chalked the outsides of the bun with brown and the insides with white to make them look more like a real bun.

The “meat” is patterned paper, but the same effect could be achieved with brown paper run through a patterned embossing folder. This rectangle is 3-1/2″ so the meat hangs over the bun.

The meat and the top bun are popped up with dimensional adhesive. The pickles, onions and tomatoes are popped in the middle and flush on the ends to give them a rounded look.

Speaking of the garnishes, what a great way to use scraps of red, white, and green paper.

The lettuce is made with green lace. How cute is that idea!

The cheese and sesame seeds are both done with puffed paint.

Now that we’re wrapping up Father’s Day, I think this card is the perfect way to say hello to cards that celebrate the summer.

Here’s the video:

Thanks again, Nancy! This was great!
