Everyday cards and Valentine’s cupcakes

 I wanted to make a set of everyday cards as a birthday present for a co-worker. I made the cross-stitch teapot that I already showed you and these will go along with that. I used the image from Justrite Plant a Little Love set. I cut out the images with various nestabilities. 100_1847

The cardstock is from Coredinations called Pesto. The green is the same shade as the mat on my project. While I was shopping for the green cs at Stamp and Deliver, Claire (store owner) showed me this fabulous piece of cream paper which I have tried to incorporate onto each card. I colored the image with my copics and added some pieces of ribbon from MFT spring ribbon bundle.


This card has a few score lines made with my Scor-Pal. I used my eyelet border punch on the cream paper and my bow easy to tie this snazzy double bow. A button flower and pearl were added to the bow. For the next card, I used a sketch from Mojo Monday.


I stamped the image on a Labels 8 die and layered that with a Labels 5. Some kaiser pearls are attached to the edge. Decorative scissors were used on the cream strip. I am still working on a few more layouts, but wanted to get this post done tonight before I get too tired. I also wanted to show you the cupcakes I made for my guys today.


They are Red Velvet cupcakes with Cream Cheese frosting. The boxes are from Wilton as are the candy hearts and if you look close in the window, there are toothpicks in the shape of an arrow. They were a big hit this morning! Tomorrow is a fun day with the girls. We are going to lunch at PF Changs. I have never been to one of these restaurants before and I hear the food is out of this world. I hope you have a fun week and can find time to spend with your friends:)
