What does absolutely everyone you know have?
There are no exceptions to this one . . .
And what could be better than a handmade
card in your mail to wish you happy?!
Everyone likes it when their birthday is remembered . . . even if they pretend that they don't!
AAA Cards has a fabulous challenge beginning today:
These colors are fantastic together.
And the sketch - so much fun!
WooHoo! Get over there - Be sure to play
and have some fun with us.
In fact, it was such a great sketch and color
scheme that I did two cards.
So - for the first one:
is the base.
Using the adorable
stamp set on Whisper White (#100730) card stock,
the candles were alternated in
Calypso Coral ink (#126962) that were stamped
both in full strength and "stamped off" so
the candles were the same color but a different shade.
The Sentiment was stamped and then cut out.
After taking a "bite" out of the Whisper White with
the Decorative Label Punch (#120907), the White
was adhere to the base. And in the "bitten" area,
the sentiment was stamped again.
made the Paper Piercing element a piece of cake.
And to finish the card, my 2-Way Glue Pen (#100425)
and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (#102023) added shine
to the candle flames.
The second is a swing card . . .
The Label Card Thinlits Die (#133479) is all you
need to create these easy and fun cards!
Everyone loves 'em!!
You open up the front - the sentiment
swings open . . .
And then you open the last flap
for even more birthday fun! Love it!
The cupcake icing is super-duper sparkly!
Tip - Use the VersaMark pad to get a punched part ready, then sprinkle some Heat and Stick Powder on it. After heat setting with the Heat Tool, you have an adhesive that covers your entire area. Then you can use something like Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to make your entire punched piece shine!!
What I used:
Punch - Cupcake Builder (#121807)
You need to get over to the AAA Card Challenge
and play along. I can't wait to see what you create!
See you there!!
