It's Your Day, a Makeover Monday Challenge
I'm running a bit late this week as far as getting my card together for the Makeover Monday Challenge at Paper Crafter's Library. Andrea Walford created this card:
Like Andrea's card, I used a square card. I used a piece of dark blue paper and a star punch to create the "It's Your Day!" sentiment instead of using ribbon. With my limited embossing experience, I attempted to emboss the cupcake. The cupcake image is a new product for me. It is called Basically Bare. The frosting is canvas and the bottom is cardboard. The shapes came bare and ready to alter. So, I embossed the canvas frosting and added gems. I embossed the cupcake bottom as well, using an embossing pen to create the stripes and chalked between each stripe. I rolled paper to create the candle and added wire behind the frosting. If I made this card again, I would make a few changes. I would use dimensional adhesive behind the diagonal paper and the star strip at the bottom. I would also use brighter colors. It just doesn't have the feel I was going for and brighter colors might be the answer.
