Finally back with another card after a few days away from my blog. Not that it's been a few days away from crafting, far from it - I've been very busy designing and making, just not managed to get it all phototgraphed and on the blog! This is such a busy time of year, with Mother's Day and Easter just around the corner, not to mention all the usual birthdays and other events that I've been making for. On the up side, there will be lots to share in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
Today I thought I would share with you a very pretty yet simple birthday card I made for a little girl I know, using the cupcake stamp from the Patterned Occasions stamp set and more of the lovely More Amore designer series paper.
I layered a piece of DSP on a Pool Party Base, then coloured the cupcake image on the stamp with Primrose Petals, Pool Party and Real Red markers and stamped onto a 1 3/4" circle of Whisper White cardstock, layered on a larger circle and attached with dimensionals to give some lift. A Pool Party ribbon and bow adds a finishing touch.
I also stamped a co-ordinating cupcake on the front of the envelope - it's always worth thinking about ways in which you can add a little detail to the envelope, just to finish everything off.
If you like this stamp, it's part of the Patterned Occasions set available during Sale-A-Bration, free with any £45 purchase until 22nd March - just contact me if you'd like to order. Hope you like the finished card - lots more to share this week, so until next time, happy stampin'!
