Diamond Background Sweet Wishes Cupcake
I have had this Diamond Thin Frames die from Honey Bee Stamps for quite awhile and never used it. I thought that if I used it to emboss the frames into some white cardstock it could be a great background for a focal image.
I used the tan embossing mat from spellbinders and followed the instruction on my Big Shot to emboss a thin metal frame. Once the Diamond Frames were embossed I cut off the largest frame so it would fit on an A2 cardbase. Darice sticky back foam was added to the back for dimension.
I decided to used a different rainbow patterned paper on this card and cut it down with a stitched rectangle and adhered it to the front of an A2 cardbase with dotliner adhesive. The diamond shape was then adhered in place with liquid glue.
This time I decided to use the larger die cut cupcake from My Favorite Things and colored the two pieces with Copic Markers and adhered them together with liquid glue. The cherry was adhered in place with liquid glue as well. To add some embellishment to the image Ranger Crystal Stickles was added to the frosting and Ranger Glossy Accents to the cherry. It was set aside to dry while I prepared the sentiment.
I went through several die cut sentiments and when I saw Penny Black's Sweet Wishes I knew it was perfect for a cupcake image. White cardstock was colored in an ombre of blue Copic Markers and then the sentiment was cut.
The cupcake was adhered to the top of the diamond background and then the sentiment was adhered with liquid glue, with a few small strips of sticky back foam to the letters that overhang the diamond background and the card was done.
