In keeping with my good blogger pledge I am pleased to bring you another card!!! I have been at it with the cupcakes again! I must say I have stolen a few ideas from the amazing card I had for my birthday from Julie over at huxtershouse!!! You can see that card here http://huxtershouse.blogspot.com/2009/11/cupcake-birthday-for-stacey.html
The card is A5 and it is a pearl brown cardstock The background is actually the reverse of a Bo Bunny christmas paper ( nothing goes to waste ) I have cut the cupcake using Doodlecharms and I think it is cut at about 6". I have aged the edges of the cupcake top and embossed it with the divine swirls embossing folder using my big shot!!! I have finished off the cupcake with some fab sticky gems and a bow using american crafts ribbon. The whole card is then finished with a self adhesive lace strip and more of those cute gems x x x
Well I have been away from my blog since November, I am beginning to think I may be the worst blogger in the world!!! I have just been so busy!!! But hopefully I am back for a bit now and I will try to keep my blog upto date and also keep ontop of the blogs that I am following cos I cannot remember the last time I sat down and had a good scan of the blogs!!!
Onto my card!!! My brother only went and turned 18 on me this month!!! I cannot believe it!!! He is so much taller than me, he has a good job a car and a girlfriend but I cannot help feeling that he is still my baby bro!!! Anyway, he loves basketball and it is as popular in the UK as it is in America but luckly I had the sports mania cart!!! Now please excuse my pics as the card is A3 folded so it is pretty big and I had no card big enough for the background! I have used design studio to weld Nick 18 the the swoosh cut, Ihave cut it at about 6" quite a few times and layered it all up! Thats it nothing fancy just plain cutting and layering!!! I could not turn it into a shape card as I do not have the larger mats just yet but I am very pleased with how it turned out!!! And I think he liked it!!!
