6x6 tutorial
We all know that 6x6 paper pads are perfect for card making, but I love that you can use them to create a custom image by making your own embellishments for your stamps!

I made this card using a fabulous Tim Holtz stamp that I got from the store (but it is no longer in the shop! but I bet if you asked really nicely they would order it in for you!) and my trusty 6x6 paper pad!

I started out by choosing my papers that I wanted to use.

Then I cut them into 1x6 inch strips (I later cut those strips in half before rolling them because the 6 inch strip made the paper waaay too fat!)

I find that when you're rolling paper like this, it makes your life easier if you kind of curl the paper with your fingers back and forth first before rolling. It just softens the paper a little bit! Once they're rolled, I highly suggest using hot glue to seal them, because I found the other adhesive just wasn't strong enough!

Once they're all rolled, just use the glue gun again to secure them onto the stamped cupcake! I stamped the cupcake twice and cut the frosting part off and coloured it with Faber Castel Big Brush Pen that I scribbled onto my craft mat then picked up with a water pen for a fun watercolor look! Once it was finished I just adhered it back on top of the other cupcake and voila! Instant birthday card coolness!! (This one's for my mom!)

Here's a couple close ups:
