Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #27




It's our 1st birthday over at Crafty Cardmakers and we are having a birthday celebration. I can't believe we are a year old already.

Well done Vix for all you hard work setting it up and keeping us all organised and we have a great DT who have made some fabulous cards.

My card was made using a birthday cake decoupage from Creative Cardmaking magazine. I have added glitter and lots of Glossy Accents to make many of the elements just good enough to eat. I cut the front of the card down so the cake looks like it is popping up.




The papers and the banner are from Basic Grey. The banner is a cardstock sticker that was really long so I cut it into 3 sections, mounted 3D foam on the back and added small brads to each letter. This will double up as a birthday card for Paul's Grandad who is 90 on the 10th August.

We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher for the winner of this challenge so I hope we will see many entries for this one.

This is almost edible. In fact I actually found myself licking my lips as I scanned it. Those strawberries and the fruit on the top really do look like I should be putting them in a dish with some icecream! Yummy!
