A new month and a new challenge from Unstampabelles. This month it's a Significant Birthday with a twist.......make a shaped card.
Our sponsor is Regal Craft.
Prize: $15 to spend in store
Regal Craft generously supplied the team with shaped cards to work with. Mine was a cupcake which I played with to create a card for a One year old......I think being One is very significant.......going from a baby to a toddler.
I used fluorescent pink corrugated card from my stash for the 'case' and the 'icing' was thin white foam which I also had in my stash from eons ago. I spread glue over the 'icing' and added 'sprinkles' of tiny stars and sequins from a pot stack I got as a gift from a friend. The tiny pots are in a multitude of colours and stack together. There's no name on them so not sure who supplies them. Hope someone will know so I can give credit.
The 'cherry' is a button which I snipped the stem off so it would lie flat on the top of the 'cake'. I covered it with Diamond Stickles. The candle was made from left over corrugated card and the flame was a snippet of the foam. I added an oval topper and ONE using peeloffs. A diecut pink heart with peel off dots and stars was added to the bottom to finish it.
The Diamond Stickles was then added to the icing and the flame to give it further sparkle.
I thoroughly enjoyed playing with this shaped card to make my Significant Birthday card for the challenge at Unstampabelles. Hope you'll be inspired to pop over and give it a go too. My teamies have used a variety of shapes and you'll be amazed at some of the shapes that have been used. If you still aren't sure what shape to use why don't you visit our sponsor Regal Craft and purchase one of their shaped cards, they have some interesting ones to choose from.
