Make a Wish

Good thing Austin doesn’t mind getting a House Mouse card made by his mother on his birthday. One day he’ll no longer want those little mice, hedgies or bunny cards… I’m just glad he likes enjoys them now (so he says)!

I added Liquid Appliqué (LA) to the cupcake for frosting. I’ve discovered that if I heat the LA from the backside it doesn’t puff up as crazy… I also had my cardstock smokin’ so don’t leave your heat gun in one spot very long. Before heating the LA I added gold micro beads to the LA… I think they look like little candy sprinkles. After heating the LA I pushed the beads down into the LA to keep them in place.

The image is Make a Wish 02, it’s the smaller version of the original Make a Wish which I think is no longer available. The designer paper is from Close to My Hearts Reflection Kit Good Times… I just love those colors, Buttercup, Chocolate, and Twilight. Instead of using the Chocolate cardstock from CTMH, I used Walnut from Bazzill.

Thanks for visiting ~ Jovi
