A few weeks ago, Create with TLC posted the sentiment "Celebrate with a Cup of Cake". Every time I saw it, I kept thinking of those cakes in a cup that Hungry Girl posts recipes for. You know the ones I mean, a single serving rather than a whole cake to tempt you. I do love a good cake, and have even been known to eat a not so good one if it contains chocolate and sugar. When the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog posted a challenge to make a Birthday card, I remembered that not only were there several cupcake images in the Tiddly Inks Store, but also an image of a cup. Just the two things to combine in order to use the sentiment.
I loaded both images into Word and got them to a size that the top of the cupcake fit into the cup. I also inserted the sentiment into Word so that I could get it the same size as the combined images. I colored the images with my Copics, and then came back with my Spicas to add a bit of shimmer. I cut the cupcake top out and used mounting foam to put the cake in the cup.
As far as the background papers go, I haven't a clue from what paper pack it came. I got it out of my cabinet, and I just know it was coordinating paper. I didn't have any ribbon the right shade of blue for the bow, so once again Copics to the rescue, as I quickly colored up some double faced white satin ribbon. Of course, you see some Spellbinders being used along with a Martha Stewart edge punch.
Haven't decided yet whose going to get this birthday card, but is shouldn't be a problem since I have lots of birthdays being celebrated between now and the end of the year.
Thanks for stopping by.
