Paper Sweeties January 2016 Inspiration Challenge

Friday, January 1, 2016

Happy New Year! Let's ring in the New Year with an Inspiration Challenge from Paper Sweeties! 
I used Sending Sweet Thoughts Sweet Cuts dies for the cupcake on this card, and heat embossed the cupcake border (from the matching stamp set) along the sides. For sparkle, I added a few Paper Sweeties Frosting Sequins, as well as a bow made with Robin Egg Baker's Twine. The lower edge was punched with a border punch. 

Aren't the colors in this month's challenge pic gorgeous!
Here's another look at the card with the front and back pressed together so you can see the gold cardstock shining through the border punched edge. The cupcake has the same gold as a base, too.
There's that gold foil strip that shows through the front of the card. The sentiment is from the Sending Sweet Thoughts stamp set. After stamping it and coloring the heart in with a dark brown Copic, I used a red gel pen to outline the heart. You can't see it well in the photo, but I backed the sentiment panel with gold foil so it would shine through the die cut zigzag borders.

Be sure to visit the rest of the DT for more inspiration! 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope 2016 is a spectacular year for you!
