It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Cupcake Hedgie – TDG035 for the image and Eat Cake – FDG026 for the sentiment. I think the expression on this little hedgie says it all! Birthdays should always be an excuse to eat some cake! LOL!
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I adhered Scrapbook.com – Brights Smooth Cardstock which was the same size as the base to the card using double-sided tape. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine die cutting machine, I die cut the cake background paper with Your Next Stamp Designer Pad – Birthday Boy and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch was then inked around all of the edges. I add some U-Line double-sided tape and popped it up onto the base card. Again, using my Empress die cutter, I die cut some golden yellow cardstock using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I added some U-Line double sided tape and added it to the patterned background. Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies were used to die cut the smaller square out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Die was used to die cut the circle from some Red cardstock.
The image and sentiment were stamped onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic Markers. I added Stickles – Star Dust to the cupcake to make the layers sparkle. A 1.5″ Circle punch was used to cut out the sentiment. U-Line double sided tape was added to the backs of the image and sentiment. I popped up the image onto the smaller square and the sentiment onto the red circle. I added another layer of U-Line double sided tape to the right side of the red circle and a little bit of glue to the left side and popped it up over top of the main image. To finish off the card, I added on some YNS Gumdrops – Firefly Magic Sparkly Gumdrops and YNS Gumdrops – Sugar Rush Sparkly Gumdrops.
