Yesterday was my nurse Mary Lou's birthday and this is the card I made for her cased from someone (I lost the original info to give them credit- sorry!) The base is crumbcake with pear pizazz DSP scallop punched on the bottom and layer over a white CS stamped with sentiment from Bring on the cake with Staz On black and colored in with markers (to prevent any color bleeding). Add the 1/8 inch red taffeta ribbon now before you lay down the white cardstock ( instead of ripping everything off to squeeze it in later like I did because it looked like it just needed SOMETHING. tee-hee) Cone is Pennant parade inked in soft suede onto crumbcake and then punched out - don't you just love coordinating punches? then the cupcake tops from the cupcake builder punch in poppy, daffodil and pear pizazz and sprinkles from Create a cupcake stamped with chocolate chip (what else?) and cherry on top from the same punch in poppy (because I had leftovers- and color the stem with chocolate chip marker. I added a little sparkle to the cherry but you could leave it plain or add some crystal effects.
Life is less stressful if you CASE!
