I made two cards today.

I made them the same, except for the image.  I used the Silhouette to make one card and the Cricut to make the other.

The card base is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of kraft card stock.  I embossed the front of the card with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called "cane back chair," I like the basket weave look of it.  I cut a strip of white card stock at 2 1/4"x3 3/4" (on the Silhouette card) and 1 3/4"x3 1/2" (on the Cricut card).  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Love Notes set.

The cupcake on the Silhouette card is from Alla' K, and is called "cupcake with hearts" (#15993).  I cut it at 2 1/2."  I covered the confetti sprinkles with star dust Stickles and added a red heart-shaped gem to top off the cupcake.  I then accented the cupcake liner with a white gel pen.  I finished off the card with some red bling.

The cupcake on the Cricut card is from the "Tiny Treasures" Creative Memories cartridge.  I cut it at 2 1/4."  I also welded a heart from "Tie the Knot" onto the cherry.  I covered the heart-shaped cherry with x-mas red Stickles. The white confetti sprinkles are covered in star dust Stickles.  I finished off the card with some red bling.

I also finished the inside of these cards.  The inside is the exact same for both.  I cut a dark blue mat at 5 1/4"x4" and a light blue mat at 5"x4 3/4."  I used two stamps from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Birthday Hugs set.

I made these for the following challenges:
Color Throwdown: color inspiration
CASology: cue word - basket (I added some basket weave embossing)
Mojo Monday: sketch
Scrappy Moms Stamps: all you need is love
