Making Cards & Gifts Class

Our second project was a card, very sweet for a young one and would be great in Night of Navy/Bashful Blue masculine colours!

Here we have used "Big Bold Birthday" which has 20% off its normal selling price during August, making it a fantastic £19.16 and this set comes with 13 stamps.  This is a two-step Stampin' set which means you build your image using two stamps.  Click on the flyer to the right side of my blog to see the other Two-step Stampin' sets that are on offer, and remember, this offer only runs through to the end of August.

So back to the card, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink, I just love these colours (not that you hadn't noticed!!), I am so glad that these will all be making it through to the 2010/11 Idea Book & Catalogue!  We used the "So Swirly" jumbo wheel in Rose Red Ink for the insert and added 1/2" and 3/4" circles layered with a Pretty in Pink Brad attached through the centre for some texture and interest.
The cupcake frosting was stamped in Pretty in Pink ink then the spots stamped in Rose Red Ink which we hand cut along with the Rose Red cupcake base.  The greeting was stamped in Chocolate Chip and punched out using the Word Window Punch.  The border around this is from the Scallop Oval Punch, hand cut leaving three scallops at either side, cutting from one edge to the opposite edge.  We used a piece of the lovely Satin 5/8" Ribbon in Chocolate Chip tying in a knot to add texture and to balance our card.
