Tomorrow is Seán's birthday, but I thought I'd give you a sneaky peek at his card before he sees it. Shh! Don't tell!
- Blank card
- Cupcake stamp
- Adhesive foam strips
- Rub-on & tool
Using an orange ink, I made a stripe at the bottom of the card. Then I whipped out my favorite cupcake stamp.
For the next step, I needed to make a mask. A mask is the image stamped on a scrap piece of paper and cut to the exact shape. This helps layer the images.
|Make a mask so you can layer stamped images.|
Stamp the first image, place the mask over it and stamp the next one. Repeat as necessary.
|See? Easy layering.|
Then I took some bronze ink and rubbed and dabbed it all over the front of the card.
|Bronze it up.|
Then I stamped another cupcake on a piece of paper and cut it out.
|Yet another cupcake.|
And then I colored it in with markers. I then colored in all of the cherries with different colors.
|With a Crimson Red cherry on top.|
I stuck it on with some adhesive foam strips. I love the whole 3-D effect.
|I tend to use a lot of these.|
I found a "Happy Birthday" rub-on in my stash. Yay!
|Rub-ons are fun.|
I sign all of my messages to Seán with "xoxo" and so had to use my XO stamp. Love it!
So, that's it!
Happy birthday, Seán!!!
