I apologize for the lack of posts last week; I've been recovering from this nasty ear infection (and still can't hear out of my left ear), and once I was able to spend time on my feet I started back up with my Spring cleaning. This means that posting is likely to be sporadic for a while as I continue to deep clean and declutter (that is, sneak things out of the house when the husband and kids are gone!) my way to a decent looking house again.
But I did need a birthday card for today, and I've been DYING to play with my new Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge, so I popped this cutie together last night. I used the Cricut Imagine, along with both Elegant Edges and Kate's Kitchen (I cart). This saved me from spending time hunting through my stash, as I just needed a couple of sheets of white textured cardstock.
To create my card base, I used the 5:7 rectangle from the Imagine shapes, resized it to 7" (which made it about 10" wide), and colored it with one of the patterns from the Kate's Kitchen cartridge. Next, I sized the doily shapes from Elegant Edges at 4.5". I colored the solid shape with the darkest blue from the KK cartridge, and the cutwork doily with a pattern from the cartridge. I chose one of the cupcakes and sized it at 2.5", and the made with 100% love label and sized it at 1".
Cupcake Sprinkles stamp set for the front of the card. I also used the same ink color to stamp Happy Birthday on the inside of the card, from the Party Pennants stamp set. That's it; all done!
Thanks for stopping by - I hope to have at least one more project for you some time this week, I just don't know when!
