Presents and Cake - You Can't Go Wrong



I must say that the inspiration for these two cards came from browsing the many card magazines I have. The first one I used my Cuttlebug for the background. To make the presents I cut different color strips of cardstock and ran them through the zyron and attached to white card stock. I stamped the presents and them cut them out. I did stamp the bow again and attached my presents to match with the bow. I used brads to add a little something extra.



On the Make a Wish card I made the background using a set from Hero Arts. I have tried to use this set several times without any luck. I also used the decorative stamples to hold down the ribbon - I have tried to use those also without success. I used the prisma colors for the cupcake which I really love to play with.

You girls out there that can tell what paper you used are a lot more organized than I am - LOL or maybe I just have too much.
