Skinny Cake Greeting Card

Stamped Items 012

This is another image from The Angel Company stamp set Little Cupcake.  As I have said, I LOVE this set!  The card base is a piece of 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ white cardstock, folded.  I adhered 4 pieces of coordinating cardstock from Pop Rocks cardstock collection to the white card base.  Each rectangle measures 2″ x 2-5/8″.  I stamped “celebrate” (from the same stamp set) in the lower right hand corner and adhered a piece of chocolate colored ribbon across the middle of the card.  Next, I stamped the skinny cake on a piece of white cardstock and colored it with colored pencils.  I used Crystal Lacquer to highlight the chocolate frosting and Stardust Clear Gelly Pen to highlight the dots and candle.  You can’t tell from the picture, but the gelly pen adds a fine layer of glitter.  It is my latest “must have”.  After the lacquer dried I mounted the white cardstock to a piece of brown cardstock and adhered it to the card base using Pop Dots.

This original card design was from a birthday card from a dear friend of mine, Lesley Retherford.  She is an amazing rubber stamp artist and is always an inspiration to me… “Thank you, Lesley!”

“Hip, Hip, Hooray” Birthday Card

I made this card today for my nephew.  Technically, he’s my best friend’s son, but he calls me “Auntie”.  Jonas turns five in two days.  Wow!!! I can hardly believe it.  I wanted to make a card using some sort of “critter”.  He loved animals and bugs so I used this set from The Angel Company.  It has several great animals and it was hard to choose.  I settled on this hippo because of the sentiment.  Unfortunately, for the life of me I can’t remember the name of this set.  It was a “Stamp of the Month” set from last summer.  If anyone out there in cyber-space can help me remember I’d appreciate it.  Anyways…  I had to use green cardstock.  Everything of Jonas’ is green since his middle name is Green.  The patterned cardstock is from Sands of Time 12×12 Cardstock Collection (TAC).  Its one of my favorites.  The card turned out so cute.  I think he will like it.  I know his mom will. 🙂
