It seems like just yesterday she was born, and now she's crawlin' around, "playing" with my 2 girls, and ohh....she's just sooo cute! She's one of those
I've scaled down for kids' birthday cards....they really don't care, so why add so much? I really wanted to add more, but decided to merely glitz it up with a little dazzzling diamonds...what's a cupcake without sparkly frosting?! ;-b
Here's a VERY simple card I made for her birthday...
Stampin' Up's "Crazy For Cupcakes" is a great set for birthday cards...LOVE it! :)
I only spent about (10-15 min) on this card. Stamped with Brown Stazon, colored in. The main image is popped up behind the Close to Cocoa layer....'cause I *heart* dimensionals. :)
Frosting: after coloring & adhering image to card, I applied crystal effects and sprinkled with dazzling diamonds. I used crystal effects (instead of a 2way glue) to give it a shiny and raised effect.
TIP: Mount it first, then apply the ce/dd...because ce takes awhile to dry. Best to put it together, THEN let it dry instead of trying to mess with it while it's trying to dry & risk smearing. :)
It seems so simplistic, but sometimes (in the case of a 1st birthday, for example)...simple is better. ;-)
Well, what do you think?
