Ian, here, from anewbiecrafter.blogspot.com. Today I have a fun birthday card that I created using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I am lucky to have both of my sisters birthdays in July. Knowing that I needed to get on the ball and get some cards made, this is one of the cards I made for one of my sisters.
As mentioned previously, I used the Art Philosophy cartridge. The card was from button 50, or the last page in the AP cart handbook before the keypad layouts. I also used the layer from that same page on the inside of the card. The stamp was from Close To My Heart and came with the AP cartridge. I used the Pemberley paper pack collection. On the front of the card, I stamped the two cupcake images. I cut out the cupcake four times from the AP cart four. I then was able to stamp in different colors and layer the images appropriately. I ended up placing the cupcakes on pop dots on the front of the card. I took some twine and wrapped it around the front cardstock 3 times. To finish it up, I etched the card with a white gel pen. I really liked the final outcome of this card! Here are some pictures.
I cut the card at 8" (but would definitely pair it down for next time. On the inside of the card I cut the paper at 8" as well to line it up appropriately. The cupcakes were cut at 2.5". The twine is from a twine share I was involved in so I'm not sure what brand it is. The white cardstock is from Michael's Recollection brand.
I hope you like my card. It's simple yet elegant. I think it fits my sisters personality perfect.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look! Enjoy your day!
