Birthday Cupcake

Today I have another birthday card, this one for my younger sister.  I enjoy getting inspiration from challenges and the two I chose this time are Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge #327 and Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes.

Card Base and Layers:  Whisper White Thick cardstock used for the base.  Added a layer of Blushing Bride that I first ran through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling EF.  A strip of Fresh Florals DSP was matted with Whisper White and added.
Image:  Using the Sweet Cupcake stamp set, I stamped the three layers of the cupcake wrapper using Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso inks.  For the frosted top, I stamped the first two layers using Blushing Bride and Berry Burst inks.  The third layer was stamped with VersaMark, heat embossed using heat and stick powder and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I heat embossed it a little more to be sure the glitter would stick.  The cupcake pieces were cut out using the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits.  A piece of Blushing Bride CS was cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The Layering Circles Framelits were used to cut the Whisper White scallop circle.  I layered these, added the cupcake pieces (Dimensionals were used for the top), and popped up the whole image layer on the card front using Dimensionals.

The Finishing Touches:  I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set on Whisper White CS with Crumb Cake ink.  It was cut out with one of the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I attached it to the card with Glue Dots.  For a little more sparkle, I added a Berry Burst Glitter Enamel Dot.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  The weekend is right around the corner and I hope you have a great one.
