Enjoy Your Birthday
Good morning!! I mentioned that I am trying to build up my stash of birthday cards in last week’s post. As I was flipping through my stamps & dies, I realized that I had never used the adorable Cupcake Builder Honey Cuts. So, that is the focus for today’s card.
I began by cutting the Cupcake Builder Honey Cut dies from white cardstock and coloring all of the elements with Copic markers. You can also cut them from different colors of colored cardstock, but I chose to color them. I stenciled some Moonstone Glimmer Paste through one of the Polka Dot Background Stencils onto white cardstock. Once dry, I trimmed the panel down to fit inside a blue cardstock panel that was cut using the largest of the Scallop A2 Card Frames Honey Cuts. The Enjoy Honey Cuts were used to die-cut pink cardstock and vellum for the beginning of the sentiment. The second part of the sentiment, from the Enjoy stamp set, was white heat embossed onto the same blue cardstock as the scallop background and cut using the Sentiment Banners Honey Cuts. The cupcake, die-cut sentiment and sentiment strip were all popped up with foam adhesive. Lastly, I added some chunky glitter to the frosting on the cupcake and flame of the candle. I just love all of the shine!!
That’s it for me today!!
How about you? Do you keep a stash of cards on hand, or do you create especially for the recipient?
Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you next Tuesday!!
