A Great Pair

Hi everybody! :) I hope you are having a great weekend. I'm here to share my card for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, which is sponsored by Crop Stop this week.

Oooo...look at that gorgeous cupcake in the inspiration photo for the challenge. The first thing that popped out at me was that tiny playing card. Not only do I love the colors, I think that playing card is adorable!

I struggled making this card a bit. I knew that I wanted to give it to my guy, so I had to keep it light on frou frou. It looks a little plain to me, but every little thing that I tried to add really didn't look right. I think Joe will love it all the same! ;)

Here is an image of the Ace of Hearts that I'd love to share with you. I whipped this up quickly in Photoshop...nothin' fancy at all here. ;) Just click on the image to make it bigger, then right click and save it to your computer, and print at the actual size. You will have the perfect size to create a playing card perfectly sized for a greeting card. I used a paper trimmer to trim around the edges to make a 1.5 x 2.5 in. rectangle, and then I used the SU corner punch to round the corners of the rectangle shape.

Don't forgot to swing on over to the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge blog to see all of the creations by the other CIC DT Sweeties. Join us for this week's challenge for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate from Crop Stop...gotta love that!
