THT047 Faux Birthday


Happy Thursday! Today's featured member of the Treehouse Design Team is Gloria Morizen, who challenged us to make a Birthday Card using a FAUX technique.

The technique I chose is Faux stitching. The image I used is a FREE colored cupcake from Ashley, our fearless leader (it's the May contest digi!)

The card is really easy. I downloaded the colored image twice, and cut one out to pop. Of course I had to use RED as a bg color, along with white and turquoise. I used my new Fiskar's edge punch, and faux stitched in turquoise around the panel.

Please feel free to join us, and attach your card or project to Mr. Linky at

so we can see it, and maybe you will win some free stuff from the website!! Please look at what the whole DT has done by clicking on their names on my sidebar. See you next Thursday!!
