Summer Driggs has a blog called Summertime Designs, and among her free kits is a kit called Sweet Cakes. The kit was the result of an idea from looking at her baby's footie pajamas when playing airplane with her (you know when you lay on the floor and lay the baby on your legs straddling your feet). Having seen these same patterns in footie pajamas, I fell in love with them all. This card gave me the opportunity to use several of the papers, making it a really busy card. Of course, the 12 or so Winter Cuties weren't enough, and I needed the perfect excuse for another image. You really, really need to check out these awesome cuties over at the Phindy's Place Store and she's adding more and more. I may go broke buying them along with a few other Phindy Phans.
Well, "nite, nite Santa" was that perfect excuse. I looked at that image and knew I needed it, so that I could paper piece the footie pajamas with another of the Sweet Cakes papers. The sentiment on the front was a freebie from Create with TLC, and I used my Cricut and my Make the Cut software to cut out the cupcake(using even more of the papers) and the lettering for the inside message. I added a little white space on the inside left panel for some serviceman or woman to write a message home to their little cupcake. I used some tiny yellow ribbon tied in a bow to keep the card closed.
I absolutely love the way this card turned out and can't wait to do another Google on Fancy Fold tutorials. Thanks for stopping by, and hope you liked my card. I love hearing comments.
