DH's Birthday "Cake"

I made his favorite red velvet cupcakes and then made these cute little picks to spell out "Happy Birthday Justin". I used bamboo skewers cut down to about 4" and attached a red scalloped circled that I layered with a white circle and a letter and shadow cut with the Base Camp cart. He LOVED it! It was such a great way to personalize his birthday cupcakes and (with the help of my BFF) we were able to whip them up in no time!

  • Red Velvet cupcakes
  • bamboo skewers
  • scalloped circle punch
  • circle punch
  • Base Camp cartridge (letters w/ shadow cut @ 1 1/2")

Thank You cards

 One Thank You card 6 different ways! I love how different these cards all look just by changing the colors and patterned papers!
Who doesn't need a stash of  Thank You cards and these were sooooo easy to do! I can't decide which one is my favorite.
They are a standard A2 size, and I used Opposites Attract for the words.

  • Opposites Attract cartridge
  • Solid color cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2)
  • Patterned paper (5 1/4 x 4)
 I did alter the size of both "thanks" in DS so they would fit better on the card. If I can figure out how to post a file on here, I will post the cut file :)

French Manor Friendship Card

 Here is a card I made with my French Manor cart. I just love this cut! It's so elegant! And I just happening to have the PERFECT stamp for the sentiment on the inside! I wish I knew who the stamp was made by but I bought it unmounted in a huge lot off Ebay. So if anyone recognizes it let me know. I try to give proper credit whenever possible :)

  • French Manor cart (dress form 4")
  • Black and tan cardstock
  • Patterned paper
  • "friendship" sentiment stamp
