Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.  The prize this month is an awesome digi pack containing several images and a paper pack too - how cool is that.

Challenge #242


WOW, am I out of my comfort zone, I hardly ever make cards for kids and I so struggle with them when I do.  Strange as I used to be a teacher and still have not really grown up my self hahaha.  Maybe I will blame it on my grandson :) - he only wants cards with the latest fashion on them and that can change in the blink of an eye.  Last year it was all Lego themed and the year before Spiderman themed.  So for this fortnight DT creation for the them Children I worked with the image 'Cupcakes' by Alipeepes Art.

A rummage through some design papers which came free with magazines found the perfect one, a sheet with two complimentary designs on, one with cupcake related text and the other with flowers.  With that found I coloured my image to match and used lots of glitter on the flower and the icing.  The camera has really mucked up the glitter on the icing as it is a very pale pink and mixed with clear embossing powder so in reality is only a wee shimmer but in the photo looks dark and heavy. 
The die cuts were all cut with Spellbinders - Grand Scalloped Squares, Grand Squares, Scalloped Ovals and Circles for the mount for the image, the tag and the background.  Out with the sewing machine and I attached the design paper to the mounts using a silver thread.  The lace was coloured with Promarkers and also sewn to the card.  To finish off a cupcake brad, couple of buttons and a big bow :)

I also decorated the inside of the card using the left over sections of paper.
