It’s Your Birthday – Treat Yourself

One of the things I really like about digital stamps is that you can make them any size you want.  For this card I use the Pretty Cute Stamps Hey Cupcake and made it large enough to be the focus of the card.

I printed it on some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo with registration marks.  This allows you to send it back through the software after coloring to cut around the image.

I colored the image with Copic Markers: YR24, RY23, YR21; E59, E57, E55; YG17, YG03, YG01; R24, YR23, Y02.  For the card front I die cut a rectangle using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and matted it with a piece of lime green cardstock I had in my scraps.  I placed the cupcake on the rectangle to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts Birthday Messages with Distress Oxide Twisted Citron Ink.  3M 1/2″

Foam Tape was added to the back of the cupcake for added dimension.  I went through my paper pads and found this plaid patterned in the Lawn Fawn 6 x 6 Rainbow Paper Pack and cut it using a larger MFT rectangle die.  A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the plaid patterned paper was adhered using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The focal image rectangle was adhered to the cardbase using the same adhesive.  The backing was removed from the foam tape and the cupcake was applied and the card was done.
