Birthday Girl!!


Sharing image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs today from the new February release called Karah’s Cupcake. This stamp set comes with 3 sentiments. This image brings back memories of when I was little and my mom used to bake us fancy cakes and cupcakes for our birthdays every year.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5″ x 3.6″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I had a few issues with her hair using my markers, so I used PrismaColor pencils to try and fix it. For the shadow behind the girl, I just used the same 2 markers several times on the background wall. I die cut some pink cardstock using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set and then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry.

I used Hot Buy Recollections Card base of 5.25″ x 4.25″ for the base and attached the die cut directly to the base using double-sided tape. The completed image was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish off the card.
