Once again my health has prevented me from posting my card a week ago, as planned, sorry for that.
I stamped my Strawberry Swirl cupcake on to some copy paper because I wanted three cupcakes in two sizes and I only had one size. I scanned my stamped cup cake and in my drawing program I resized it and printed all three (the big one and two smaller ones).
I started this card with the idea to put the Giraffe I made earlier (see this post) on the front of the card. The inside I wanted to be a pop up card with cup cakes.
I had already started to colour the stamped cupcakes with my Polychromos pencils in different shades of pinkish reds and ochre. During the colouring I decided to make another panel for the front of the card because I didn’t know how to match the giraffe on the outside with the cup cakes on the inside.
Therefore I went through my stash of patterned papers and found two pieces of paper in pinkish red/yellow blending, what matched perfect to the cup cakes.
The stamps came out in a series and the Cupcake Pile Up stamp from the series was a great one to use on the patterned paper. I stamped and white heat embossed it double for a bolder look.
After I finished colouring the cupcakes I fussy cut them.
I stamped inside my top folded card 18 candles from the third stamp set in this series.
I coloured the candles with the same colours as I used for my cup cakes.
The second piece of the patterned paper I glued to white cardstock and die cut letters for my sentiment.
I glued the word Gefeliciteerd (Congratulations in Dutch) in a half circle in the card.
I didn’t have a die cut that was large enough for my numbers so I printed them and cut them out of brown cardstock. I made two small slits in the biggest cupcake, put some glue just above the slits and put the numbers a little bit in to the slits and adhered them at the same time. Now it looks like they are in the topping.
I cut, folded and glued my pop-up elements on to the inside of the card and glued my cupcakes to them.
The pop-up elements are simple rectangles that you glue slightly before the fold line of the card with the smallest side and the larger side you glue on to the side of the card that opens up.
I made my sentiment Tijd voor taart! in Dutch which translates into Time for cake! on my computer because the stamp I had wasn’t the right size and I wanted to have white letters on a black background.
And by adhering my sentiment with foam tape to front of my card I finished the card and I love how it all came out.
