Hi there! It's back! The Diva Dare is back! :-) It's my turn to share how I answered this month's Dare. You can check out all the details over at the Verve Blog (there is some FREE Verve up for grabs...just sayin')!
I just loved this month's theme - Birthdays! I am always in need of birthday cards so I didn't stop after I created my first birthday card...I had so much fun that I created three!
To start, I cut out a cupcake shape using my Silhouette and some patterned paper (from the Happy Travels Collection by Glitz Design) and pink cardstock. To finish the card, I embossed a sentiment (form the Sunny Days set by Verve) and some stamped leafy Sprigs (also from the Sunny Days set and cut out with the Leafy Sprigs die).
My second card was also cut out using my Silhouette - this time in the shape of a birthday cake. The patterned paper is from the Nostalgia paper pad by My Mind's Eye. The stamped focal image was created using stamps form the Making a Statement set and the Rounded Rectangle and Loopy Blooms dies.
My third card, this time in the shape of a gift box, features the Birthday Bash set. Here on the front, I stamped a border of starts along the bottom of the box.
The inside (or the insert, actually) also features the Birthday Bash set. :-)
Thanks for stopping by! ~Laurie
