Recently I mentioned that I am watching the Cricut Cards for any Occasion DVD by Megan Elizabeth of Above Rubies Studio. Megan is such a great teacher!
With Megan's DVD's I love that while she is showing you how to create the projects she is also giving you little tips and hints on how to do things . . . even if you don't make the exact same project that she does you will learn some new tips and tricks you can use for other crafting projects! So not only am I learning how to make some fabulous cards, I am also getting great tips from Megan along the way. Look at the birthday card I made for my sister-in-law after watching this DVD . .
The cupcake is from the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge. I used my D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder to give some more depth to the frosting on the cupcake. I even used Megan's Happy Birthday stamp set for the sentiments. On the outside I used the "Make a Wish!" and "Blow out the Candles!" stamps. Inside I stamped "Have a Fabulous Birthday!"
If you would like to purchase this stamp set, or the Cricut Cards DVD go HERE
