For as much as I love to stamp and make Christmas cards this time of year, I think I'm all Christmas carded out! We're celebrating a birthday today for of the girls I work with. We're ordering out for lunch, someone else is bringing the cake, and it's my job to get the card--of course I had to make it! With all of the Christmas cards I've been making, creating a birthday card was such a nice change! But, have no fear...I still have many Christmas cards to post and share with you here on my blog, so, until the big day arrives, this will probably be the only non Christmas card you'll see here for a while longer.
Here's the birthday card I made for Cindy.
Stamps: Cake by Magenta, Sentiment by Impression Obsession
The cake image was colored with marker and I sponged yellow ink around the candle flame to create the "glow." I added a bit of Yellow Stickles to it as well. The sentiment tag was created using SU! Pink Passion ink, Nestabilities, and a Copper brad from Joann's Scrap Essentials. I also used an EK Success Decorative Border punch, a brown Spiral clip, fun pink and brown ribbon and the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Embossing folder. I used Bazzill Bling cardstock in the background, which really gave this card some nice shimmer, but it made it a bit difficult to photograph.
So, does Chocolate cake make your mouth water?
Happy Birthday, Cindy,
Happy Holidays to the rest of you!
