For my final posting of the evening, I would like to share my entry for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #11: Sweets and Treats. I decided to enter the card I created for my mother-in-law's birthday. I am absolutely IN LOVE with this card. I have to give credit to the PSA Essentials' Stamp Camp blog and guest designer Stephanie Jones for inspiring my card. Stephanie did a similar background using alligators, and it inspired me to break out my "Whimsy Cakes" stamps from PSA and create my own version for my mother-in-law:
Card: Crane & Co. White Notecards (I bought them cheaply when a local stationary store went out of business.)
Cardstock: White Cardstock (for my Imagine)
Cartridge(s): Cricut Imagine "Better Together"
Stamp(s): PSA Essentials' "Whimsy Cakes" (background - I stamped the single image multiple times to create the background effect), Pink by Design's "Take the Cake" (sentiments)
Glitter Glue: Stickles in "Baby Blue" and "Cotton Candy", studio G Glitter Glue in Black
And I colored the background cupcakes using regular ol' colored pencils :)
I love the effect of using a single stamp to create a cool background that fits perfectly with the rest of the card. Now I can only hope my mother-in-law loves it as much as I do!
Thank you for visiting my site! Happy Crafting!
