Sprinkles of Life Cupcake CASE
Back when the Sprinkles of Life stamps first became available to demonstrators, I pinned this card. I just love how simple it was to make, yet how interesting the card looks. I love lots of layers, lots of colors, and lots of textures...so this was right up my alley. I love how the layout is balanced, but not symmetrical. And I love how she used patterned paper to mimic the appearance of sprinkles on the cupcake (that paper is from the Cherry on Top stack). As you can see, I made some adaptations of my own: I changed the color scheme a bit and elongated it from a square card to a rectangle one to fit in the envelopes that I keep on hand. Doing so allowed me room to add an extra banner. Speaking of banners, do you know how I made these? Using the new Triple Banner Punch. The product is advertised as making perfect 1", 1-1/2" and 2" wide banners, but really, as long as you are careful about centering you can make banners of any width up to 2". For mine, I used scraps, so I didn't have those exact dimensions. I had to be a little more careful in lining it up before punching, but it worked like a charm. Thanks for stopping by today...be sure to come back throughout July to see more ideas using Sprinkles of Life and Cherry on Top.
