Birthday Glittery Cupcake

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to post to my blog more regularly. Another of them was to get a little more organized. So, I'm trying to make a dent in each today by posting a quick card, before finally forcing myself to take the holiday decorations down & get them stored back in the garage (brrr, it's cold out there today!).

I actually was not going to make the rectangle frame around the greeting a different color to begin with, but I had to cover up a there it is! What I had originally done was stamp the greeting down without using the Stamp-a-majig. Yes, I am THAT lazy. And I had already cut out the entire Pool Party cupcake image, and didn't want to do that again (remember lazy?), so I quickly inked up just the rectangle area of the image in Soft Suede, and stamped it. (I used Soft Suede to make it look like I had intentionally designed that cover-up piece to be different--but you know the truth now!) Then I USED the Stamp-a-majig and stamped the greeting exactly where I wanted. Moral of the Story: using the Stamp-a-majig in the first place would have kept me lazier, although I kind of like the darker frame around the greeting :-)

  1. Great card! I love the stamped, kraft background and how it makes the other colors really pop. I was just surfing the internet for inspiration and came across your blog. I make cards for our troops through Operation Write Home and enjoy checking out card maker blogs from time to time.
