And here it is...
The cupcake die was a recent purchase for me (mostly because I got a freebie die at another company that said "happy birthday cupcake" so of course I needed a good cupcake die!) I like the layered frosting and it's a great size. I used two patterned papers to create it (which is a lot for me!) so instead of paper behind it, I embossed the stripe. As I was browsing my cardstock stash I found this golden brown paper which I'd never used. I was surprised by that because I think it's the perfect baked cupcake color! I added some texture to the cake with a subtle embossing folder.
It was quick and easy and just perfect for a friend's upcoming birthday. I hope to see you playing along this week with CAS Colours & Sketches!

This is a very pretty birthday card with the embossing across the background. It's a great take on the sketch. Enjoy your day!ReplyDelete
I love that background stripe and can't believe it's embossed. What a fabulous idea!ReplyDelete
