Cupcake Easel Card

It was my nan's birthday last week so of course I made her a card and I thought I'd share it with you.
It is a side easel card, my first. I t wasn't very hard to make at all. You just take a square card and fold the front in half diagonally decorate it and put your stopper on.  I'm not sure of the exact measurements but its probably a 6"x6" or 8"x8" base.  with a 1/2" boarder.
I decorated mine with a pirimaged cupcake !!!             I pulled the pink out of the frosting and used it for the base colour. The reason I left a gap in the middle of the card stock was so that it would fold easier. I guess you don't have to if you don't want the gap, but thats just how I did it and I like it because there is some white in the cupcake design.

It looked a little plain so I added three pink pearls and a little pink bow, I didn't use the cheater method I actually tied a real bow !!!
For the inside I put a little boarder with some patterned paper and added a stopper witch said...
Hope your special days a treat.
The elements and toppers I used today were all from a hunkydory kit that I purchased from create and craft.

Happy Birthday Emily !!!

It was my friend Emily's birthday on friday so heres her card. 
I used my largest (large) petit scalloped circle die by spellbinders to cut out the main card. I then added the next size down and cut some patterned paper. 
I stamped happy birthday using a memento ink pad. 

I then used the smallest die cut it out a few times folded it in half and snipped one scallop off of each end. Using this technique I created three butterflies. 
I glittered each of the scallops and put the butterflies around the card.

Very Late Mothers Day card

My very very late mothers day card.
I have been so busy recently but I finally got to my computer so ...

Its a DL card (8"x4"). In a peachy pinky colour (not sure which brand).
I started out by cutting three scalloped circles from my spellbinders dies. I drew some lines on the back and trimmed them down to make three little dresses.
 Its a bit hard to explain so hopefully these pictures will help.
Count three scallops across each side of the bottom point.
Then draw a line from that point to the opposite top point.
Then cut along the red lines.
Hopefully you will get something that looks like this.

I put ribbon around the waist and added some glitter to each of the scallops.
 I added a piece of ribbon.
And used the cheater method to tie a bow.
I aded a black brad to each end of the ribbon just to keep it in place, and thats that.
