It's A Party! And Your Invited!

It's that time, once again, for me to post my entry for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is, invitations. I chose a birthday party theme.

This is what I used to make my card:

  • One 5.5" x 8.5" piece of white card stock, for the base of the card.
  • One 5.25" x 4" piece of patterned paper.
  • Medium Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Elements - Star Circles.
  • Coordinating color card stock
  • Copic Markers, YG06, G14, Y02, Y08, YR07, and YR16
  • Digital Stamp from, Limited Runs Digital Stamps
  • Viva Decor Glitter Liner - Silver
I started my card off by printing the digital stamp, then coloring it with Copic markers. I then cut the image out. I then folded my white card stock in half, making a 5.5" x 4.25" card, and attached my patterned paper to the top of my card base. With my Cuttlebug, and Nestabilitie die, I cut my star circle with my color card stock, then with a dauber, I inked the edges with purple ink. I adhered my cupcake image to the circle, then adhered that to my card base. I didn't have any stamps that suited my purpose, so I decided on printing my messages out using my computer, and printer, cut them out, inked the edges with the same purple ink that I used on my circle, then placed them on my card base where I wanted them. I decided I wanted to add a little sparkle, so I dotted some silver Viva Decor Glitter Liner in the middle of each star. I know it's hard to see on the picture, but it's there...lol!

I really liked the way the card turned out, and I love the image that I used. I just love all the cupcake and other designs, Limited Runs Digital Stamps has to offer, and I know I will be going there often whenever I'm looking for something new to use.

If you have the time, please leave me a comment, and let me know what you think about my card. Also, be sure to check out the monthly challenge at the Card A Day Blog Challenge. There are prizes to be won!
