I was so excited this morning to learn about a new challenge blog - Seize the Birthday. The challenge is all about birthday cards! Now that I'm finished making Christmas cards for a while, I really need to get on top of my birthday cards and this challenge will help!
I just finished making a couple of birthday cards as part of a card set that I'm giving as a Christmas gift. I went through my stash of paper looking for some bright and cheerful paper and came accross Close To My Heart's special paper - Dotty For You. This was a special paper during National Scrapbooking Month this past year and it was so popular. Right before the special ended I made sure to grab a couple of extra packs and I'm so glad I did! It was so hard to pick which card I would share today but I decided on this card:
I used sketch #19 from Close To My Heart's Make It From Your Heart Vol. 1 book. I added a dimensional element and using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, cut the same shape as the dimensional element. The white cardstock is cut 1/4" smaller than the black to layer.
I colored my cupcakes and cupcake stand with our new Alcohol ink markers and added Stardust Glitz Glitter gel to the frosting for sparkle.
