I really liked this week's Make it Monday #34 technique that showed us how to make homemade thick chipboard accents. It is so easy. Basically, you just die cut your cardboard (I used coasters) 6 or so times, then glue all the layers together. I used it again to make another birthday card for my daughter, who's birthday is next weekend.
She loves cupcakes, and is turning 14. I think you can see where this is going.....
I went back to Kim's blog to case the same card I cased here. I was inspired to make the numbers out of chipboard by this card by Euna.
You can see how thick those numbers are.
A little peek at the inside of the card, where Rachel will find another cupcake. I just love this sentiment from SU Create a Cupcake--it pretty much sums up Rachel's philosophy on life.
