This yummy goodness is on its way to my mother-in-law, whose birthday is later this week. The cupcake image is one of Lockhart Stamp Company's newest images, the Cupcake with Bow. Isn't it cute? It is tough to tell here, but I put Rock Candy Distress Stickles on the frosting portion - it looks so fantastic in real life, just like a sugar-coated frosting!
The image was stamped on White Inchie+ squares. I used Memento ink, then colored them in with Copics. I outlined each Inchie+ square with a light Copic, too. Once that was done, I added the Stickles I mentioned above, as well as Liquid Pearls on the bow's polka dots. Adding details like this really make your image pop! (And these great matboard squares can really take what you want them to!)
The sentiments are from Lockhart, too. They're classics and should be in everyone's Lockhart collection! It was fun to be able to pair them up like this. I popped up the strips with the sentiments with foam tape so that they would be on a similar level as the Inchie+ squares.
I hope this inspires you to create a fun birthday card! After all, you never know when that next birthday is going to sneak up on you! Be well.
