I'm back with another Paper Sweeties card for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 300. Today's challenge is a color challenge.
The colors in this challenge are chartreuse, white, and pool, but I added in some pink just so I could use these sweet Cotton Candy Straws. I also used the Party Time and Bloom & Grow stamp sets and cut them with the Party Time and Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die sets. The flowers were colored with Copics, and I did a little shading on the plaid cake with Copics, also. Blueberry Baker's Twine adorns the "Happy" banner, on which I hand-wrote the letters using gel pens. For sparkle, I added Green Apple Sequins.
Inside the card, I used the Pretty Posies stamp set and coordinating Pretty Posies Sweet Cuts die set to cut the flower and leaves. Rather than cutting the leaves from the green paper, I just cut them out of the white layer so that the green paper showed through, then after adhering the negative die cut white layer over the green paper, I stamped the leaf onto the green plaid paper, and glued the pink flower over them.
I left the inside of the card blank so that I can use it for any "Happy" occasion, but my daughter hinted that for her next birthday, she'd really, really like to have this card, so I suspect it will end up being a birthday card. ;)
Congratulations, Cupcake Inspirations!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!
