eligible for that fantastic give away from "Cricut Holiday" what a great way to get the fantastic
"Sweethearts" cartridge and a wonderful SEI paper pack. There are some great cuts on "Sweehearts".
This was one of those cards that just would not come together til the very end. I would work on it, changed the orientation several times and then put it aside. I do not work that well under a deadline, I like to have an item finished before it is due, some people thrive on deadlines but not me, so I was really getting frustrated. I had the card on my table and above it was a flourish from another project and the rest they say is history, it just fit so I went with it. If I had had more time, I would have done it with design studio but I was under the gun. My point being sometimes you just have to let go of the image in your head and just let the design go in its own direction.
The overall measurements for this card are 5 1/4" x 5 1/2", the shape card was created with Design Studio and the Celebrations cupcakes, then additional single cupcakes were cut. The flourish is from QK as well as the "Celebration" Banner. The cupcakes were frosted with my homemade glaze and then micro beads were added. All coloring was done with the Copic Markers and the Copic Airbrush System, by the way if you are a Copic user you might want to try the Copic Opaque White, it is not in a marker, you can use with a brush or other tools and it is fantastic (white dots were done with the product).
