Rainbow Sweet Wishes Cupcake
I love making cards and I make a lot of them, but I have more than I can use. I called one of our local assisted living centers and asked them if they could use some birthday cards. They said that would love them, they give cards to each of their residents on their birthday. So I went to work creating some cards for seniors.
I began by ink blending a panel of cardstock with rainbow oxide inks and cut the sentiment from it. The sentiment was also cut from sticky back foam. The two were adhered together and the sentiment was removed from the remainder of the foam.
I really liked the look of the rainbow sentiment, but now I needed a focal image to pair with it. I pulled out the My Favorite Things Cupcakes and Sprinkles die and cut the elements from white cardstock and ink blended them with a couple of the same inks used in the rainbow. The pieces were adhered together with liquid glue and pieces of sticky back foam was added to the back.
I wanted to add visual interest behind the sentiment and cupcake and cut a rectangle of cardstock that would be just large enough to frame the elements on the card. It was dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder. Another panel of cardstock just larger than the embossed rectangle was ink blended with the blue used in the rainbow and the two panels were adhered together with liquid glue. They were adhered to a top folding cardbase. The sentiment and cupcake adhered in place. Ranger Crystal Stickles was added to the frosting and Gold Stickles to the flame.
