You Make Life Sweet, Happy Birthday!
I started with a piece of Basic Grey scrapbook paper and glued it to my card front. Then I adhered a strip of sheer purple ribbon about 1/3 of the way down the card. The bottom half of the card is a coordinating print of paper from the same Basic Grey pad. Using the "Hey Cupcake" clear stamps from Paper Wings Productions, I stamped the pedestal on a printed paper, and the cupcake on white cardstock. I colored in the cupcake with my Copic Markers and then glittered the frosting with pretty pink ultra-fine glitter. I also stamped the fork, knife, & spoon from the Hey Cupcake set on white stock, and colored it in with my copics also. I adhered the fork to the back of the cupcake to make it look as if someone was eating it, and attached a large half-pearl on the top of the cupcake swirl.
I also took a strip of white cardstock and stamped the phrase,"you make life sweet! using the Whimsical Alphabet stamp set from Paper Wings Productions for the word "L I F E" and hand wrote the rest. Using double sided tape, I adhered the paper strip with the phrase directly under the purple ribbon and then attached the cupcake and pedestal on top of it using foam tape to make it POP! I also adhered three smaller half-pearls below the strip for accent. I also stamped "Happy Birthday" inside the card, before I wrote my message..
After it was completed, I could stare at it sitting on my computer, instead of looking at all the yummy food on the computer screen. I hope everyone had a wonderful Saturday, and look forward to a beautiful Sunday! Happy crafting, or celebrating with Dad, whichever you happen to be doing on Sunday. Until next time-
