Such a sweet easel card

I’ve another card to share today that uses a variety of our new Summer products. This birthday card combines the Sweet Cake stamp set (yes, another cupcake set but I just couldn’t resist – you can never have too many cupcakes and these ones don’t even make me fatter!), the Sweet Shop Specialty DSP and, on the inside, TWO Jelly Bean Brads (this will have to be for someone special!).

Here’s the card closed:

And stood up as an easel:

Recipe
Stamp sets: Sweet Cake (W125490 or C125492), Crazy for Cupcakes (W111618)
Cardstock: Soft Suede (119982), Calypso Coral (124392), Whisper White (106549)
Ink: Soft Suede (115657), Calypso Coral (122939), Pool Party (122938), Versmarker (100901)
DSP: Sweet Shop Specialty (125408)
Punches: Modern Label (119849)
Ruffled Ribbon: Pool Party (122975)
Other: Designer Printed Brads (122940), Jelly Bean Brads (125587), Vanilla EP (125590), Cherry Emboss Powder (127035)
Tools: Heat Tool (110197)

The card base is an A6 landscape easel card (essentially an A6 portrait card with the card front folded in half again, then turned on it’s side). A large mat of Soft Suede card had strips of the Sweet Cake DSP adhered direct to either end. leaving a small margin at the edges. The main images was stamped in Soft Suede ink onto Whisper White card and cut out. Using markers direct to stamp, the cupcake image was coloured as follows, frosting – Pool Party, cherry – Calypso Coral, cake base and cherry stalk – Soft Suede. The frosting layers were then coloured over with the Versamarker and heat embossed with the Vanilla EP and the cherry coloured again with the  Versamarker and heat embossed with the Cherry EP. This was all cut out and popped up over the main image with dimensionals. The small heart at the bottom of the image was stamped in Calypso Coral ink, cut out and popped up over the main image with a sliver of dimensional. After stamping the sentiment (one of three in the set) onto Calypso Coral card with Soft Suede ink, it was trimmed to size and popped over the main image with dimensionals. More dimensionals were used to pop the finished topper onto the front of the card. A faux bow of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon was secured above the image with a Calypso Coral Designer Printed Brad.

For the inside, a strip of matching paper was adhered direct to a Whisper White insert. The sentiment (from Crazy for Cupcakes) was stamped in Soft Suede ink onto Whisper White card and punched out with the Modern Label. This was adhered direct to a strip of Soft Suede card and cupcake Jelly Bean Brads added at either end before popping up on dimensionals as the easel stopper bar.

Hope you like it.
