Today I’m sharing this adorable Cupcake Gnome image from KLM Digital Designs new August release. He’s made this big cupcake just in time to help a special someone celebrate another amazing birthday year!
I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was then coloured in with Copic markers, fussy cut, then lined around all of the edges with a black marker.
For the main background, I used a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. PhotoPlay – Party Girl paper was used to create the background. To do this, multiple layers of the paper were cut out using a mixture of My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and Layers. Then the cut rectangles were edged with Kraftin Kimmie – Mermaid Melody and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Pink Pizzaz inks.
For the sentiment. “Happy Birthday” was die cut 5 times and then layered to give it dimension. Once all of the layers were completely assembled the tops of each were stamped with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.
I popped up the image and background layers with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card and added in a few Kraftin’ Kimmie Krafty Dots.
