I saw this cool tall center step card at Eva's Scraps N Cards,
and she was gracious enough to send me the file.
This card fits neatly in a 4.5 x 6 envelope, so if
you don't add a lot of embellishing, will mail with regular postage.
I started with a white card stock base, inked the edges,
and added the Swiss Dots embossed mats to the front.
The cupcake is from the Home Decor cartridge and
is cut from glitter papers @ 2.75".
The "frosting" is embossed with the Swirls CB folder
and the small hearts are negative cuts from the same cupcake.
The banner is hand-cut, inked, and matted in a darker chocolate brown.
The stamp is from the Mark's Finest Paper "Celebrate Big" stamp set.
I continued the same matting on the inside followed
by more from the same stamp set that has been hand colored
in pencil and blended. The small green gems and pink swirls add some bling,
while the top sentiment is backed by a Fiskars scalloped square punch in
the same chocolate brown as the front "Happy Birthday" banner.
I added a "Birthday Recipe" card to the back
for my personal sentiment.
I love to make cards that can be displayed and
this one is just delicious!
I will be entering this in the following challenges:
