Happy Birthday Cupcake

Well if anyone had thought that Summer was over we can all think again! A hot 34 in Melbourne today and it was 30 degrees (Celsiuis) by 10am so it was a short walk and playtime for the dogs.  And so it is also a good time to stay indoors and make a card using the sketch at Just Add Ink this week :-)


I decided to use the Chalk Talk Framelits for the tags - can you see them?


Yes, that's right :-) The large tag detail is hiding under the white tag layer!

The card base is Island Indigo and the White and Indigo layer is added with dimensionals onto another white layer with some White Bakers Twine to cover the card join and add another texture. Next the Chevron DSP is cut using the largest Chalk Talk tag framelit and it too is layered onto a White version to give it some strength so it can sit up on dimensionals :-) For the greeting, the Sassy Salutation is stamped and cut with another of the Chalk Talk framelits.  Silver Foil card stock is added with more Chevron embossing and some silver brads. And finally, the happy little cupcake with its little cherry on top :-)


Card stock: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Silver Foil
Designer Series Paper: Watercolor Wonder
Inks: Island Indigo, Real Red, Baked Brown Sugar
Stamps: Sassy Salutations. Create a Cupcake
Accessories: Big Shot, Chalk Talk Framelits, Chevron EF, Whisper White Bakers Twine, Create a Cupcake punch, Silver Brads (retired), Earth Element brads (long retired!)

Happy stamping until next time,

Jan

    1. Thank you so much Jodene, it's a great sketch! I am not usually great at multiple DSP type backgrounds so it was a good challenge for me :-)
