Sweet Shop Suite

This card was one of those cards I wasn't too sure about when I started putting it together, but I'm so pleased with the way it turned out!

I started off with a Calypso Coral card base and embossed it along the top edge using the hearts from the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  These new embossing folders are a lot of fun and great way to add just a little texture to your projects!  On top of the Calypso Coral is a piece of Pool Party card stock.  I ran this piece through the Big Shot using the scallop from the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies.  The polka dot piece is from the Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  You can't see it in the photo, but the polka dots are raised.  The ribbon is 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in Calypso Coral.

 Here's a close up of the stamped image.  Sorry about the shadow.  I had to turn the flash off because of the reflection I kept getting from the Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  The cupcake image is from the Sweet Cake stamp set ans was stamped two times on Whisper White card stock.  The first time I stamped it all in Pool Party and cut it out.  The second time I used my markers (Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, and Basic Black) to color the cupcake and the cherry on top.  Next, I used my 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for the frosting.   I cut the cupcake out and popped it up with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.  I used my Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral markers for the sentiment, too.  This was finished off with the coordinating brad from the Sweet Shop Jelly Bean Brads.

This was a quick, fun card that would be great for any birthday.  If you would like to make this card call or email me to schedule a workshop or your own private class!
