This birthday card is for one of the most special people in my life, my stepmother. She is a wonderful person so I had to try and step up my usual simple style to make her something extra special.
The sentiment and cupcakes are from The More the Merrier Hostess Level 3 set (want this set, have a workshop and earn it for free!) I watercolored the cupcakes with my blender pen and ink pads. I added a little "bling" to the middle cupcake with a clear rhinestone brad. (This stamp actually has five cupcakes lined up, I only wanted three so I used some regular old tape to cover the cupcakes I didn't want while inking my stamp, then removed the tape and stamped my cupcakes!)
My background paper is the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper-which is sooooooo pretty, I love it! I matted all my layers on Rich Razzleberry Cardstock and rounded all the corners using my corner rounder punch-a must have!
I love the way the card turned out but I needed to make it even more special so here's what I added inside:
That's right! I just got my brand new 3D Pop Up Cake Die for my Big Shot and this was my first attempt at it...I don't think it turned out too bad! My Happy Birthday sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and fits perfectly with my Modern Label Punch. (Hint: I punched out three extra Modern Label Punches out of Orchid Opulence and used them to make "mat" for my Whisper White Punch.)
