SMC CHALLENGE # 14


The challenge this week is to make an Easel card. Turns out that it isn't so difficult...esp. if you have Sure Cuts a Lot and a cutting file that's been created (although I think I could do this without the cutting file now that I have read a tutorial and actually made one). I decided that I need to build up my birthday card supply for next school year so I'm going to be making them (and thank you cards) for a while. I used Miki with Cake image and colored him with Prisma markers. I used a dab of Tulip brand gold fabric paint for the candle flame. I inked the edges of my scallops with a blue Cat's Eye pigment ink pad. I also used that same ink pad for the Happy Birthday sentiment inside the card.

Be sure to check out the Sew Many Cards store for an awesome deal for the month of May. I'm planning on it {wink}.
