Well, I seem to have lost control of myself on these cards. More, MORE, MORE seems to be the watchword here, and it just has GOT to quit! I mean, for REALS.
Take, for instance, Charlie's birthday card.
I made this-
Now, I DO like the little cupcake. I used my crimper to make the liner. Yes, my crimper. That thing I use mostly to make padding for hefty cards. You know you have one hiding in the dusty back part of your closet somewhere.
Oh yeah, and that's a cloud die making the frosting. That, and some Stickles.
I used paper to "thread" that button. Seems much easier than doing the whole needle thing.
I was pretty happy with the whole cupcake thing.
Then I think I took about an hour to do those fussy cut banner flags. Oh, and I fussy cut the sun. And that cherry. I am SUPER glad that maraschino cherries are ALL red.
Did you notice that little banner paper pieced into the sentiment there? Who does that? Me, that's who.
Gave the Cuttlebug a workout too, with all the die cutting and dry embossing. Oh, and can't leave the punches alone either. Had to grab one for that top piece.
And washi. See those red dots along the bottom? Washi.
Ridiculous. Hoo boy.
He liked it. A lot. I guess I do too.
But, it's really getting out of hand. Really.
But, trust me, it ain't getting any saner around here any time soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
