Inspired by the "World's Most Difficult Puzzle" which arrived at our place during Christmas week! This is a double-sided 500-piece puzzle by TDC Puzzles. Yikes! Yes, it was difficult, but sometimes coming up with a unique card design is even more difficult. I chose a pack of decoupage paper from Little Birdie to complete a number of cupcake cards.
Here are some more cards:
Decoupage paper is strong and versatile, similar to rice paper but with a smoother texture. It is thin, flexible paper that can be cut, embossed and layered on almost anything, often used to decorate furniture, photo frames, boxes, or vases, just to name a few. As a paper crafter, I use it to decorate cards and create vintage embellishments.
For these cards I cut the cupcakes out and adhered them with Mod Podge to cardstock.
For the pink card I gave the background a soft look by adhering light pink tissue paper to cardstock and running it through an embossing folder. Then I attached individually cut cupcakes to the background. Sentiment sticker is from Simple Stories, flower from Prima Marketing. The twine adds an extra element.
For the vintage cards, I used Marion Smith Designs paper for background and elements, paper clip (just because it worked) and Prima Marketing flower. Stamped Happy Birthday sentiment is from a Two Paper Divas stamp set - embossed with Wow gold embossing powder.
For the One-of-a-Kind card, I used Reminisce paper and added a Kaisercraft sticker and leaves cut from an Elizabeth Crafts die.
Other items used: Bazzill cardstock, Tim Holtz/Ranger distress inks.
