Crazy for Cupcakes
I needed a card for a special little girl's birthday. I settled on this set, Crazy for Cupcakes. It's the perfect set because the cupcake has just one candle, which is what I needed for this card!
I decided to paper-piece the cupcake with Tempting Turquoise and Pretty in Pink paper. The candle flame was colored with a yellow marker, outlined with More Mustard marker, and coated with Crystal Effects. The outline had been stamped in black ink on a Sizzix oval die cut which was sponged around the outside with some Tempting Turquoise ink. The tiny heart was punched out with the XL 2-step Owl Punch and coated with Crystal Effects. The cupcake sprinkles are Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
The Happy Birthday greeting (from the On Your Birthday set) was stamped with Tangerine Tango ink to compliment the Tangerine Tango card stock and the orange color in the polka dot paper which is from the retired Island Oasis DSP.
Other accessories used include the scallop border punch and paper snips for cutting out the balloon and banner. The background was run through the Sizzix machine with an embossing folder.
I love creating fun birthday cards. Hope you enjoy it, too! Thanks for stopping by!
