I am back with another card for you today. As I mentioned in my post on Friday my sister in laws birthday is coming up this Friday and I wanted to make her a special card. I will be using two stamp sets from Scrappy Moms Stamps on this card. One is an oldie but goodie called Simple Sentiments and the other is from this month’s release Do it Diet.
The supplies I will be using on today’s cards are as follows.
Solid Cardstock – Recollection & Bazzill
Patterned Paper – Recollection “Home Basics” paper pad
Inks – Color Box – Dragonfly Black & VersaMark
Embossing Powder – Recollection Sparkle
Embellishments – Stickles, Rickrack & Enamel dots
Die Cuts – Cricut Explore & Cartridge Summer Celebrations
Adhesive – Zig 2 Way & ATG Gun
I wanted to keep this card fairly simple and have the cupcake really stand out. My sister in law and I have a thing for cupcakes and I thought this one from Summer Celebrations was the absolute cutest! I used some shimmery cardstock for the cream colored icing but for me it wasn’t enough shine so I covered it in VersaMark and used the Sparkle Embossing Powder. It looks amazing! But the sparkle is hard to capture on camera.
My card base is an A6 size card (4”x6”), and the bottom blue base is also 4”x6”. The plaid mat is 3 ¾”x5 ¾” with the rickrack wrapped around it. I popped up the cupcake on one layer of foam tape as well as the sentiment. For the sentiment I cut a little notch on one side to give it some added dimension and interest.
Once I had those down I decided to add a small strip of the same papers I used on the front to the inside those measure 1 ¼”x3 ½” & 1”x3” and then put the “Happy Birthday” with room for me to write a note.
Now, I added the enamel dots to the front in two shades of pink to bring out the pink in the back ground. Then I added red stickles to the cherry and the red sprinkles on the cupcake. I think over all it is the perfect amount of accents without overwhelming the card. So, how cute is this sentiment "I've never met a cupcake I didn't like!" Ha! This is something we say often to each other or just in general and so it fit perfect for what I had been envisioning!
I am so happy with how that card turned out and I hope the birthday girl loves it too!
Until next time my friends, have a fabulous day!
