Wednesday’s Card: Cupcake Birdcage

Cupcake Birdcage

Happy Wednesday!!

Do you just love this cute little Cupcake Birdcage stamp?! I originally was going to paper-piece the frosting but then ended up coloring it with Copics. I think with the right patterned paper it would be so sweet.

I’m still thinking about my Christmas cards. I typically think about it for a few weeks before I start trying things out. Last year I made 80 of these. I think it was too much. So, I am just sending 40 handmade this year. I hate to cut back, but I need to enjoy my kids while they are young during the holidays. I’ll report back soon with more details!

Hope you have a great week!

    Your cards are wonderful! In the video, you use your favourite white gel pen. What is the brand of this one?

      Oops! I forgot to put the pen into my supplies list! I just added it – it’s the Uniball White Gel Pen.

    Love it Love It as always. Good for you in managing your holiday rather than letting it manage you! As a pastor’s wife we used to send gobs of Christmas Cards. At a point we totally quit so we wouldn’t be favoring one person over another. I have a plan for decorating a secondary Christmas Tree with card fronts of Christmas cards I would like to make. We have 2 new puppies. The secondary tree was in their main hangout. BUT I can still make card fronts, decorating in another way, and put them on the tree NEXT year when the puppies are a little more experienced.
