My Digital Studio Plus

Good Saturday to everyone!  Sorry I have been missing in action.  It has really been a busy week for me at work and at home this week.  Trying to finish up last minute Christmas presents, which was making a few more ornaments and boxes for those ornaments.  I will have to post some the rest later.

But I did take a few moments to make a birthday card for my mom.  She will be 80 on December 28th, so I did not want to miss out on making her card.  What inspired this card was the sketch and the color challenge this week at Christian Paper Crafts. 

What I did was do the basic card, everything you see except the glitter and the bow in My Digital Studio.  Then I printed it out and using the 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, made a bow and attached it.  I also used the Stampin' Up! two way glue pen to attache the glitter to the banners and the top of the cupcake.  I then attached this to a card base and it was done.  I still need to do the inside, but that part comes easy to me.  When I asked my husband what he thought, he said "Well it don't look like your normal."  So of course I wanted to know what he meant by that.  So he said, "well you usually have a lot of layers that stand out, this looks more like a Hallmark Card which isn't bad."  So I though that was kind of like a compliment.LOL

Here is a list of what I used in my digital studio to make this card:

Stamps: Celebration Pennants, A Little Birthday Cheer, Big Bold birthday, School House Serif Alphabet
Card Stock: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Pacific Point, Pear Pizzaz
Designer Series Paper: Celebrations
Celebration Elements
Square Punch, Rounded Corner Punch
1/4" grosgrain ribbon in My Digital Studio and real ribbon for bow
Glitter put on after it printed

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful Saturday!  Now off to get some cleaning, cooking and wrapping done!
