I love the way this masculine birthday card turned out. The colorful background was created using the Concord & 9th Turnabout Sprinkles Stamp. The colors were inspired by a flower arrangement I recently saw. The CZ Designs Birthday Palooze open sentiment allows for you to color it to match the design.
The turnabout stamp is easy to use and the cupcake from Avery Elle’s Cupcakes makes a great masculine focal image. It was stamped with Altenew Inks (listed below) and then highlighted using Copic Markers. Once the cupcake coloring was complete it was cut using the matching dies.
The sprinkles background was die cut using a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX die and Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back for dimension.
The sentiment was stamped with Altenew Crimson Ink and Colored with Copic Markers (listed below) to create an ombre effect. It was then die cut with the matching die, and then again four additional time with white cardstock. Each word die cut was adhered together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. The secondary sentiment was stamped on Gina K. Designs Red Hot 120# Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder. It was cut into a thin strip to be added under the die cut sentiment. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the cupcake and sentiment strip.
An A2 cardbase was made from the same red cardstock and the sprinkles background was adhered to the front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. All focal images and sentiment items were adhered to the front of the cardbase with the same liquid adhesive and the card was done.
