Happy Cupcake Day

Hi Everybody,

I made a cute birthday card for a very good friend.  She is so talented at making cards that I'm always just a little bit nervous when making her a card. I know that's silly but it's true.  

I colored this cute stamp with Copic Markers from La La Land Stamps called Heart Cupcake Marci. I fussy cut her out because I wanted as much of the background to show as possible.  For the background I used the Concord & 9th Plaid Background Stamp.  Oh how I love this stamp!  It can look like gingham or plaid.  There are lines included to make it look plaid.  I used the Misti Stamping Tool to make sure I stamped it with good coverage.  I used one of the Altenew mini cube inks, Cherry Blossom.  I used the lightest color to stamp this background, Pink Diamond. 

For the sentiment, I used a wood block stamp that doesn't have a company name on it that says, Happy Cupcake Day.  I thought that was perfect for this card. I stamped with the third darkest color in the Altenew Cherry Blossom set called, Rubellite and cut out with a fish tail banner die. I inked around the edges with the same color. 

To finish it off, I used a Sakura Glitter Pen, Clear Star, and used this on random parts of the stamp. 

For the inside, I used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for the pink cardstock at the top.  I put white cardstock under it and used a border die to cut off the lower part of the pink so I would have room to sign the card. To make the inside look a little more festive I used the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Fringed Scallop Borders. 

I love the stamp I used inside from Altenew called Wish Big.  I used one of the new WOW Glitter Embossing Powders called Spring Breeze resulting in some sparkle (who doesn't love sparkle??) and some green to tie in with the front. 

Clear sequins were the finishing touch.  I hope she likes it! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
