Birthday Card & Paper roses -- Cafemom challenges

 Today I came home to 2 challenges on Cafemom! I was pretty excited... but, only had 12 hours to do both. lol The first challenge I did was to make 3D paper flowers. The one on the left I used some stickles and the one on the right I inked the edges. I'll share a tutorial about these later... once you get the hang of it, really pretty easy and can put on most things!

The next challenge I did was to make a birthday card. I did a non-traditional fold (gate-fold I think). I embossed using the Cuttlebug Birthday folder. Stamped happy birthday, the presents, and the balloon, then used a glitter gel pen to accent some. Inked edges, added a ribbon, and added some brads to the corners of the happy birthday "sign." I also added the cute little cupcake from Simply Charmed.

  1. I love that card! I don't have a cart with cupcake yet. Speaking of cupcakes, I am going to make green ones today!
