We are having some very unusual weather here this week (I think, from what I've been told, anyway. I guess I haven't been here long enough to compare it to anything). It's late morning and it has not even hit 70 yet today. I'm loving it. I have the windows open, even though we have some on-and-off showers.
So, I'm sort of stuck indoors due to the rain and the fact that our only car is in the shop today. I figured what a better time to dust off the craft supplies! I sat down at my laundry/craft room with my mug of hot chocolate.
I usually have a stash of cards on hand so I can just pick one and send them out when the occasion arises. However, my birthday stash is getting disturbingly low (Yes, not having enough birthday cards disturbs me).
Since I'm still getting organized, I kept this card simple by using pre-cut and glittered chipboard letters. The "eat" part of the sentiment I wrote with a white gel pen. Usually, writing on a card free-hand is a big no-no for me, since it never turns out well. This time it was tolerable...
The background is just some fun patterned paper that I have had forever. The cupcake I stamped and added some stickles to on the icing. Oh, and of course every cupcake needs a bow, right? This one I added with some red raffia.
You can kinda see that this card is not folded equally in half. The inside part is longer than the front. I was going to trim the bottom off, but instead I used a black lace rub-on for the bottom portion. Now, when you open the card to write your message you will still see the border along the bottom.
And, I just love the combo of black on craft.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
