This weekend I had a family function to attend that consisted of several birthdays and a going away celebration. I spent most of Saturday making cards to give to the special guests.
This card was made for my niece who was celebrating her 23rd birthday. I really like the way this card turned out. It’s simple and, in my humble opinion, it’s pretty. She liked it, too.
I embossed the rose cardstock on the top and bottom with two different embossing folders. I also used my sponger to lightly sponge some rose Tim Holtz distressed ink over the top of the embossed words on the bottom portion of the card.
I added some ribbon to cover the seam between the embossing on the top and the bottom. I colored the cupcake with my copics (R81, R83, E35, E37) and used dimensionals to pop it up. I used Recollections Snow White embossing powder to emboss the word birthday on a rectangular piece of brown cardstock and cut triangles out of the ends to make a flag. I curved the flag with a pencil to give it some dimension and adhered it to the card.
