Happy Monday Everyone, I hope your week is off to a good start!
This past weekend I decided to pull out my Lawn Fawn Stitched Cupcake die set and Happy, Happy, Happy stamps set to make few birthday cards to replenish my birthday card stash.
Today’s card design was much inspired by Nichol Sphor’s card using this same Stitched Cupcake die set from Lawn Fawn. You can checkout Nicole’s card and video tutorial here.
Because I loved Nicole’s design so much, I decided to case her card with a slight twist. The background of my card was die cut from a scrap piece of yellow cardstock using the Chicken Scratch Coverplate die from Papertrey ink. This cover plate is A2 card size and perfect for card fronts.
The cupcakes and strawberries were die cut from the Lawn Fawn “Stitched Cupcake” die set. The cherries and stems are die cut from the Lawn Fawn ” I Scream, You Scream” die set. I embellished the cupcakes with crystal clear Stickles to create the sugared look. I added white gel pen details to the cherries for added dimension. I decided to leave off the glossy accents that Nicole included on her card.
The sentiment on my card comes from the Lawn Fawn “Happy, Happy, Happy” stamp and die set. I stamped and die cut the word Happy using my Versamark Black Onyx ink and popped the letters up with some foam tape onto a vellum strip for added dimension. I heat embossed the word “birthday” with my Versamark ink and Ranger fine detail embossing power. I like adding sentiments to vellum strips as it allows your to read the sentiment but not distract from the focal image of the card.
This card turned out super cute and was fun to make. It is a very die cut heavy card and a bit time consuming to make. However, the end results are stunning a worth the labor involved.
I truly loved the inspiration I received from Nicole and her tutorial is easy to follow. I hope you enjoyed today’s card share. Until next time Happy Crafting!
