Here's another card from the Stampin' Up workshop! I love these pretty purples. It was interesting using the Sweet Cupcake stamp set for the first time. Lots of layers.
I stamped the cupcake frosting with Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry, and Sweet Sugarplum ink. I stamped the cupcake base with Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede, and Sahara Sand ink. Both pieces were then cut with the Cupcake Cutout dies. I also stamped the candle in Elegant Eggplant ink and cut it with the matching die. After putting a small slit in the frosting, I inserted the candle and glued the cupcake together.
I stamped the white panel with a sponge dauber to get those soft-looking polka dots. I think I used Sweet Sugarplum ink for them. At that point, I accidentally dropped one of the brown inkpads on it so I chose to ink the edges. That way it looks like a deliberate choice! lol I adhered that panel to Elegant Eggplant cardstock.
After cutting a doily in half, I glued it to the card along with some burlap ribbon. I placed my cupcake on top with dimensionals. I tied a bit of linen thread through my sentiment tag, also stamped in Elegant Eggplant, and glued it in place. It makes a sweet birthday card!
