Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge theme of food for her card. I used Accent Essentials and Everyday Paper Dolls for this card. I cut the frame at 3" from the backing chipboard from a cardstack I had finished off. I have found that if I use my blades that are too dull to cut paper, they will cut chipboard easily, so I just keep them in a separate blade container that says "chipboard only." Anyway, when I had that cut out, I ran the frame through my Xyron machine and coated it with MS glitter. I added some coordinating SU brads to the corners. The cupcake was first cut from Paper Studio paper, then I recut it on Coredinations Cardstock, cut off the bottom, and used the top to layer over the paper. I used my zip dry to add a few pearls for embellishment along with some white faux stitcing. Then I free-handed a face using my gelly roll and some G2 gel pens. To make the card, I used an insert from a 12x12 album page and cut it to size for a 5x7 card. I covered the front with patterned cardstock from the DCWV Nana's Kids stack. I used a Hobby Lobby stamp colored with SU markers on the cut out square from the frame. Adhered the square to the card. Added Elmer's foam tape to the frame and the cupcake and adhered them. The finishing touch was a strip of matching cardstock on the inside. I accented with a bit of ribbon purchased in the dollar bin at Target. I wrote the message myself, using my MS paint pens. I love how this turned out! And my SIL will love it too!
