Happy Wednesday everyone. Here is a card made for a co-worker's birthday. I recently got the Baby Steps Cricut cartridge and found this adorable cupcake on it. I decided that it works for babies, children, and adults! I made the card using Sketch 106 at Card Patterns. Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on it:
Here is a closeup of the flower:
Here are the details on the card:
Size: 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Oval labels: Nestabilities
Ribbon from my stash
Cupcake: Baby Steps Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/2"
Flower: Made from punches -- This is the same flower I used on my napkin rings at the hospitality banquet (see post from last week). I found the tutorial on You Tube. Here is a link to the video, or here are the easy instructions: Punch 8 2" scalloped circles (I actually used a 1 1/2" circle for this smaller flower). Ink the edges of all 8. Spritz each with water. Crumple them up into little balls. Unfold them gently and lay them in a stack. Punch a hole in the center and add a brad. Then start folding them up toward the center and scrunching them one at a time. After they are all folded up, start folding them down one at a time until they form a beautiful flower! I then painted Stickles on the edges. I sure hope that helps.
Behind the flower I used fabric from my daughter's shirt. I cut out a circle and then made slits and added Stickles. This is for the fabric challenge at Creative Corner. I love this challenge!
I added a few gems, and it was done!
Thanks for looking and for your comments.
