Sweet Love!

Good afternoon all my bloggy friends!
Our daughter, Bonnie, is taking an afternoon nap. Poor darling has pneumonia, but she's been on meds all week, and we can tell she is feeling much better.

This is my second post today, so scroll down to see my Hello Kitty card on the previous post below. :)

Project #19 of this year
The above card is made especially for my friend, Pam, and her friend, Glora's, challenge blog, SIMPLY CRAFTS. 

This is for their January Challenge. Want to play along? Here are the details (copied from their blog post):
This weeks challenge is the cupcake cut w/ the heart on it from the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge.  If you don't have this cartridge you can make any project w/ a cupcake on it. 

So here are the details for my card I made for their challenge:
Black cardstock for card base from Recollections.
A2 size card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4").

I take an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of card stock and cut it down the middle at 4 1/4" so that I'll have 2 long strips of cardstock. I then turn the long strip horizontal and score it at 5 1/2" for the fold. The above card is folded at the top. I think this is called a "tent fold". 99% of my cards are cut and folded this way.

Cupcake from SWEET TREATS cartridge p. 28 cut 
@ 3 1/2" and added Shadow Feature.

"Sweet!" stamp from Cardz TV Stamps "Make A Wish" set.

"Love" stamp from Cardz TV Stamps "Encouraging Thoughts" set.

Buttons & Gingham ribbon for bow from Joann's.
Silver & Red solid glitter paper from DCWV Glitter Stack.

Background black, white, and silver glitter paper from DCWV also. It's cut @ 5 1/4" x 4". I just took my 1" circle punch and cut the corners of the background mat and the red "ticket" sentiment mat.

Red "ticket" cut paper that has the sentiment on it is from The Paper Studio.

I thought this turned out really pretty. I'll either write on the inside with my white gel pen or mat the inside with white cardstock before writing my message with a black or red pen.

Hop over to Pam and Glora's challenge blog, SIMPLY CRAFTS, and play along with us!
:) Smiles! Janis
