Celebrate Today

Hi all my crafty friends!! I have yet another card for you today!! A lot of the cards I made I will make a couple at a time so that I always have a large stash of cards on hand. My goal when making most of my cards is to keep them easy to reproduce, but still make them special and with detail. I think this card is the perfect combination! 

I find that people of ALL ages love cupcakes - and I definitely do!! If you follow my blog, you have probably noticed that I make a lot of cupcake projects. They're just so much fun! :) 

I used my divine swirls cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the icing on my cupcake. Then to give it a neat effect I added glossy accents over top of all the embossing. 

I just recently received this stamp set from Pink By Design. It has larger sentiments on it, which I have been waiting for! Now I just have to get used to placing them on my projects because I'm so used to incorporating smaller sentiments. I also added some Glossy Accents over the sentiment to make it stand out a little more. 

Here are the supplies I used to make this card...
- Me & My Big Ideas paper
- Giant Greetings stamp set by Pink By Design
- Cupcake cut from ... hmm... for the life of me, I cannot remember where I actually cut this from! Sorry! :( 
- Glossy Accents
- Divine swirls cuttlebug folder
- button from Dollarstore
- hemp twine from my stash
- ribbon from Michaels
- Colorbox fluid chalk ink

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I appreciate all the nice comments you all leave!! If you leave me your blog address I will be sure to stop by and say 'hi!'! :)
