Malia - Happy Birthday Cupcake

This card is for a young lady at church who is turning 16. That a big year in our church because it is when young women can start dating and going to more group date like activities with young men.

I'm new here in San Antonio and so I really don't know the girls all that well yet. We had a getting to know you night a few weeks ago and I found out that Malia likes earth tones, her favorite color being brown. So I went looking through my images to find something I could use all the different colors she said she liked and decided the strips on the dress for this image would be perfect.

I printed it with a laser printer onto Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. When the coloring was complete the image was cut out using the Silhouette PIXScan Mat and Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape was added to the back for a little dimension.

I wanted to pull in even more brown, so I die cut a rectangle of Kraft Cardstock using the Memory Box Matinee Rectangle Die and dry embossed it using the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder. Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Walnut Stain was used to ink blended over the raised portion of the embossed rectangle to make the words stand out better. The image was then adhered in the center by removing the backing paper on the foam.

A dark chocolate cardbase was used to add even more brown to this card and the focal image rectangle was adhered in place using more foam tape. Glossy accents was added to the confetti and cherry on the cupcake and the card was done.
