Happy Birthday Cupcake!
My daughter asked me to make a couple of birthday cards for her for a couple of friends who will be having birthdays soon. I had to laugh when I made this card because I was having this kind of night. Let me share what I had posted on my facebook.
“Tonight is not my night. Got ink on me and my hands when I tried to close a ink pad. And now I am out of snail and I don't have a refill. Haha. I guess all I can do is laugh.”
Here is what I used to make this card.
Inspired by: Mary Fish www.stampinpretty.com
Stamps: Patterned Occasions
Paper: Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack, Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink: Midnight Muse
Accessories: Early Espresso Baker’s Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals, Scalloped Punch Neutral Assortment Brads 5/8 (retired)
I made the 2nd card tonight. I had a little difficulty getting the size right as I am more of a visual person than a exact measurement person. I am trying to get better at that. Anyways here is the recipe and inspiration for this card.
