You're so sweet...

January 30 was my  granddaughter's birthday, and this is the card I made for her.

To start, I found some pretty patterned cardstock in an old 12" X 12" stack and used that to make my card base. I liked that it not only had a couple different shades of pink in it, but also some metallic gold on random hexagons.

I have an unbranded cupcake die set, and used it to make three little cupcakes on the front of my card.

On the inside of my card I added this bigger, pop-out cupcake with a cherry on top. All of the dies used for this were part of the same cupcake die set.

The swirls in the frosting of this cupcake were made with the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder. I've added an enamel dot to the center of my bow, too.

This card was really fun to make--especially the pop-out part of it. I love it when I can put a little surprise on the inside of my cards!

I'm entering this card into Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper February 2019 Challenge. If you've been paper crafting for any length of time, I'm certain you've got some patterned paper in your stash. Why don't you pull some of it out and join in the fun over on Hazel's challenge blog. There will even be a prize for the randomly chosen winner!

Well, we have made it through the worst of the cold weather. We managed to stay warm and to keep our pipes from freezing and bursting. We have an old house (built in 1927), and the water pipes for our main bathroom were put in an exterior wall!!! It's hard to believe they would have done that in this part of the country, even then. We have added insulation over and around the pipes, plus we add more insulation on the outside of the wall during the winter, but when it's really, really cold, we can still have a problem. My husband thinks he has a new idea that will solve this problem going forward. He plans to divert some heat from our ductwork in the basement to the inside of this wall. I hope it works!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Oh how sweet- and grand daughter will surely love it. Love the pop up cupcake on the inside of the cake. I forget there are so many different things wee can do and just totally forget.
Our polar vortex is also gone - 52 today and warmer tomorrow. Time to wash the filthy car. Have a good weekend.

Mmmmm yummy card Cheryl, inside and out!
Glad to hear it's 'warming' up - your weather has been on our news all week. Though there's been a few inches of snow over in England so the weathermen are all in a dither over that now ;)

She will love this, Cheryl, with all the angles, and the pretty pp! The dimension and detail of your cupcakes is amazing! I hope you've seen the last of that bitter cold for this year. How dumb were the builders back in 1927?! When you started your sentence, "My husband thinks he has a new idea that will solve this problem going forward. He plans to ...," I was just sure it was going to end like this: "... move us to Florida." lol! Hugs, Darnell
