Not had a chance to look for candy today as I have been quiet busy getting all my stuff ready to study, I start soon and the preparation takes me ages plus had a quick look at my books and my online work and it's mind boggling at the moment, but once I get into it, it just seems to flow, well I hope it will.
See ya later

I also made 6 of these for a swap at the Cropstop forum (with bits left over from a project I was working on and some recycled bits) at the begining of the year and had some bits left over, just enough for another one for this challenge.
I shall try again tommorow and maybe change the card stock, what card stock does everyone else use, just normal or other.

First I stamped the card corners with Pink ink and then embossed a piece of card with the cuttlebug hearts folder and used a corner punch for decoration. For the inner card I cut a piece of red card for the base and a piece of white card a fraction smaller and put it through the cuttlebug again then used the same punch for the corners and adhered it to the red card with 3D dots, added the rose and three hearts shaped gems. Tied a ribbon round the card and adhered the whole lot to the base card finely stuck a red and pink heart to top of the ribbon and added the sentiment.
For the inside I usually print straight onto the card but for some reason my printer was playing up and would not print the dimensions I wanted (still trying to figure that one out) so I printed the message onto pink copy card and stamped the image round the outside finishing of with a heart embellishment.

I bring you a card using the cuttlebug embossing folders and it also happens to be a male one which I find hard to do sometimes but this one was different as the idea came quickly so I had to make it straight away before the mojo left me lol.
I embossed the background with the Happy Birthday folder the I embossed the striped shirt paper with the swiss dots to make it look like seersucker. I went on to fold the shirt and add the buttons and pocket complete with hankie finely added the stamped saying onto contrasting card.
This one is for my brother as it's his Birthday soon and I hope he likes it.
I also entered it for the Cuttlebug challenge, if you too would like to enter or just browse this great blog go to: http://thecuttlebugspot.blogspot.com/ .
