Less is More

The saying, "Less is more" definitely applies to these cards that I made using a simple cupcake embellishment by Martha Stewart. There are days when I feel like making cards but I don't want to bring out "the works", you know the embossing powders, heat gun, stamp sets, ribbons, buttons and more. I'm sure we've all had our lazy craft days, this is the result of mine. These cupcake embellishments are adorable (Martha Stewart you are awesome!!Hehe), they are made out of felt and have a 3 dimensional effect (not sure if the camera picks that up) You can find these at Michael's and it comes in a pack or 8 or 10.

Materials used:
  • me & my BIG ideas "just write" cards in pastels
  • Sakura white Gelly Roll pen 
  • "Happy Everything" stamp set (Stampin' Up)
  • "On your birthday" stamp set by (Stampin' Up)
  • Scraps from my stash
  • Scallop square punch (EK success)
