I was cleaning up my desk and found Whimsy Stamps Cupcake Treat Trio stamp and thought I would make a card for an upcoming birthday for a friend. I knew that I wanted it to have pink and so I went to my stash of cardstock and found BoBunny DoubleDots Passion Fruit Cardstock and thought it would make a great background for the focal image.
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock. I colored the image with the Copic Markers listed below, with the pink icing cupcake taking center stage, and who doesn’t like chocolate cupcakes. After the coloring was complete I cut the focal image with the Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle using my Sizzix Big Shot. Another rectangle was cut from Darice Adhesive Fun Foam and then trimmed to be slightly smaller so it wouldn’t show when adhered behind the focal image.
An A2 landscape cardbase was created from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. A rectangle was cut from the pink patterned paper using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle and was adhered to the front of the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue. The focal image wonky rectangle was adhered by Tombo Mono Multi Glue on the back of the fun foam.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Happy. It was die cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror cardstock and then again three additional times from scraps of white cardstock. All were glued together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive and then adhered to the focal image with Tombo Mono Multi Glue. To add a little more sparkle Tiding Stickles was added to the confetti dots and the card was done.
