an excessively busy time of the year, I often end up making the two of them the same or similar cards.
This year was one of the busy years, so I went into my trusty My Digital Studio to begin the process of creating a unisex card.
Everybody loves cupcakes, right? The cupcake from the Sale-A-Bration set, Patterned Occasions, is adorable and suited my purpose admirably.
In the digital version of the stamp set, you are at liberty to make this darling little cupcake in
any size you like. I enlarged it and cropped the words "happy birthday cupcake" from the bottom. By changing up the colors a bit for each of the male and female versions, I was able to come up with a card that works well for both my husband and my niece, Megan.
The only change I did digitally was to turn the color of the cupcake frosting from pink to turquoise. Both of the cupcakes were framed with a punch matted in Poppy Parade.
Downstairs to create two hybrid cards, I cut them to size, rounded the corners, and set to
work making them more female or more male. I did this by adding a perky ribbon and pink
flower button to the upper right corner of Megan's card. On Pat's, in lieu of the button and
ribbon, I adhered a bit of turquoise to each of the corners of the mat. On his I also used a
snippet of some of the Tangerine Tango ribbon you can get for free through Sale-A-Bration.
