Layered Cupcake Masculine Birthday Card

I liked the way the balloon card inspired by Doodlebug’s Sugar Coated Confetti cardstock turned out so much that I decided to create another card using Altenew’s Layered Cupcake stamp and die with the same color scheme.  It too makes a great masculine birthday card.

The image was stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then the layers were stamped with the Altenew Inks listed below.  Once the coloring was complete it was die cut with the matching die.  My Wink of Stella was running a little dry and quite a bit came out at once when I pinched the barrel.  It looks really shiny in this picture, but the actual card isn’t as glittery.

For the focal image background the Cuttlebug Birthday Embossing Folder was run through the Big Shot with Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then die cut with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller and adhered to the back of the rectangle.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs Red Hot 120# Cardstock and the embossed rectangle was adhered to the front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  The cupcake was adhered to the focal rectangle with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.

As with the previous card using the Doodlebug Sugar Coated Confetti cardstock to ensure the confetti didn’t peel off the die cut sentiment Ranger Glossy Accents were added.  Once dry the sentiment word was adhered to the front of the card with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.
