The Sweetest Thing Bundle is such a fun set to work with. Though not my usual style, I have been finding it impossible to stop myself creating gorgeous cards with this suite, and the mixed sentiments make this set really versatile.
The different components of this card come together to create a contemporary yet fun card for any occasion.
I really wanted to make my jar of sweets pop on my card front, so I decided to mount them first onto a piece of basic black cardstock, and then onto the coordinating coloured cardstock. The white heat embossed sentiments on the black cardstock, the polka dot embossed background and the stitched rectangle die cut detail all work well with this style – just love how these cards turned out.
I love the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. Who doesn’t like a cupcake and every time someone purchases this stamp set, Stampin’ Up! donates a portion of the proceeds to Ronald McDonald House Charities which makes me love it even more!!
I decided to keep this card simple and pretty. I started by heat embossing my ‘happy birthday’ from Watercolor Words in silver on my shimmery white card front. I then ran my card front through my Big Shot using the polka dot embossing folder to create my background polka dot pattern. I stamped my cupcakes in crumb cake ink on crumb cake cardstock and stamped my fluffy cupcake tops in crumb cake ink on whisper white cardstock, and punched out my images using the matching tree builder punch. I stamped my butterflies using one of the smaller butterfly stamps from Papillon Potpourri and sponged them in perfect plum, pumpkin pie & bermuda bay ink before punching them out with the bitty butterfly punch.
Finally, I assembled my cupcakes and popped them up on dimensionals, attached the butterflies & added strips of rhinestones, and embellished my card with a silver basic metal button tied with basic black baker’s twine and clear wink of stella on the tops of my cupcakes and butterflies. I attached my card front to a basic black mat and adhered this to my crumb cake card base and voila! A delicious birthday card.
