It’s time for another cookie exchange and this time 3 of my DD Alumni friends agreed to play along! We decided to use the new SU! set Big Bold Birthday. I didn’t give them any other guidelines….just to use this set. Jen del Muro, Paula Bloom and Michelle Laycock participated in my challenge. Click on their names to check out their cards. 🙂
I decided to make a Big Buckle card using the Word Window punch for the hole. Directions for the Buckle cards can be found here on Splitcoast. Beate does a fantastic job with the tutorials there! I turned my card around a bit and just cut a 1 1/2″ strip off the front for the buckle. I scored it at 1″ and then attached the 1″ section on the back of the card.
When the new catty came out I was a bit confused until I found out that there was a mistake in it. The bottom of the cupcake is pictured as a solid image but in fact it has the happy birthday words all over it. I love it with the words….so cute! After stamping the dots on the frosting, I added some Stickles. And I added some Stickles to the candle flames and horn (under the words) as well. Hope you like it!
