Time for cake

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and our theme this time is...

SHAPED CARDS

We are sponsored by Shape EZ who are offering our prize winner 2 Shape EZ templates of your choice.



I have used one of the templates from Shape EZ, which come as both jpg/png files for cutting out by hand and svg files for electronic die cutting machines.  I had to go for the cutting by hand option and yes, it was a little fiddly but worth it for such a lovely shaped design.


Just as I was about to start making this card I was asked for a special 40th birthday card and thought this fab cupcake was perfect for it, hence the numbers!


I loved going through all my pretty embellishments to add detail and particularly love how the ribbon/twine/flower/tag combo works :-)


Oh, and after making this card I remembered that I have a lovely cupcake shape on one of my Cricut cartridges... I might do it that way next time!

Card recipe;
DP: freebie with a magazine
Lace: from Live and Love Crafts but no longer available
Seam binding / twine: The Ribbon Girl
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Numbers: cut on my Cricut
Tag: set 24, sentiment tags - LOTV
Pearls: from stash

I hope you will pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and check out the fabulous creations and of course, the top tips from the rest of the team.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Hugs,
Kat xx
