HAPPY NEW YEAR - everyone!
My Sister and Sister in Law just so happen to be online with me this very first day of 2014 and how very fitting to all have the opportunity to create our first card of the year sort of together even! We are attempting this challenge:
Thank goodness this challenge does not have to be along the strictly festive theme for I am pretty festived out (just one look at my expanded waistline will tell you that *snort*!) I ate far too much but would not have it any other way. Hopefully I can shrink it as rapidly as I expanded it.
Ok, so here’s my take on the challenge:
Strathmore Pastel Paper
Cupcake (sorry, cut from DP but don’t recall which)
Stamp: Studio G
Tombow Marker (for shading)
Cuttlebug embossing folder
I ran the Strathmore paper through the Cuttlebug. I stamped the sentiment and cut it to size and then glued it onto the Strathmore.
I trimmed out the cupcake, added the ribbon. I did some shading using a grey Tombow marker. Next I tacked it all to the card base using double sided foam tape to lift it out a bit. I added glossy accents and sprinkled generously with multi colored fine glitter. I topped it off with a pearl accent.
