From The Heart Cupcake Lineup

The digi pack this month from the Progressive Freebie Challenge at Delightful Inspiration {From The Heart} was perfectly timed for me to make a card for my Mother in Law’s 70th birthday. She is always on a diet and only this week has joined back up at Weight Watchers so the sentiment is very apt indeed. Also in a rare move for me I am so organised and have made this card early.

When Faith sent the emails out she said she might try a 3 x 3 grid of cupcakes and I thought that was a fab idea so had a play. I copied the cupcake lineup in my graphics program and flipped one of them so there would be a contrast in the colours. I also created a decoupage layer on some of the cupcakes and popped them up on 3d foam.

I coloured my image using Promarkers and Flexmarkers adding some brown and red stickles glitter glue and some glossy accents on the raised images and a red glittery gel pen on the tiny hearts. You can see the detail better in the image below.

I used pink and brown as my main colours as this is my fave colour scheme. I added red as an accent colour as it need to be there for the hearts of course J

The paper is a glittery design from the Sweet Owl First Editions paper pad, the brown cardstock is a textured one from DCWV. The circular sentiment is a fabulous freebie from Netty’s Cards popped up on 3d foam. The calorie free sentiment has been trimmed banner style and added to a scrap of red cardstock.

That’s another card made for the progressive freebie and I am looking forward to seeing what we can play with for the next month. Thankyou  Faith for running these challenges again, they are so much fun J

Card Size – A5

Fantastic job Mandy. I love the grid. Great idea to pull it into your program and manipulate it the way you want it. I'm sure this will be the best card your MIL gets this year.
