The first card I made for a family friend who is taking his First Communion tomorrow. The family are very close friends of ours and I am so excited to see him take this big milestone step tomorrow and the subsequent party! It's bound to be a good time, that's for sure! The card is made from some pretty Unity stamps and a cool wood piece that I had been hoarding, LOL. I tried to make it appropriate for an 8 year old boy by the masculine colors and adding the sentiment inside "DUDE, congrats!"
The second card is just for fun. I used this cute cake stamp from Inkadinkado. I did what you've seen me do before and stacked the cake right up, to make a cake tower. I picked colors that would relate to actual cake flavors. Top to bottom the flavors are: vanilla, marble, pistachio, strawberry, white, lemon, and chocolate. At the bottom I punched an oval for a "plate" I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of ivory cardstock and hand cut it. I finished the card off with a border punched strip, and a super fancy cabochon. Lots of girly flowers and colors on this card! It will be a fun one to save for a girlfriend.
Well, that is it for me! Busy busy week ahead! Lots of out of town visitors and social events, etc. Just gotta keep going! I'll try and pop in with a fun challenge or 2! Have a great week!
