Sparkling Saturdays: Make a Wish
Welcome to another Sparkling Saturday! Cupcakes, balloons, and confetti are, to me, some of the key ingredients of a great party. For this celebration card, I wanted to capture all these elements in a fun and whimsical way.
I started out with a piece of white cardstock that was cut a little smaller than an A2 card front. Next, I used the Sentimental Borders stamps from Mama Elephant to stamp on a subtle text background using light grey ink. For my sentiment, I stamped on a greeting from Make a Wish stamp set from Mama Elephant as well. Following this, I used 2 stitched rectangles from Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle sets to emboss the shapes/stitched lines for added dimension.
For my images, I stamped, copic colored, and fussy/die cut out a cupcake, balloon, and a sheep from various Mama Elephant stamp sets (Carnival Cupcakes & Up and Away). I adhered the cupcake and balloon onto the card front and used foam squares to adhere the sheep. Next, I used a circle die cut from MFT to cut out a circle in the middle of my balloon and then attached the shape shaker from Jillibean Soup (comes with adhesive already!) to a pink A2 card base, after filling it with a variety of different colored sequins.
For my finishing touches, I adhered a scattering of sequins to the cared and stuck some sticker gems in the middle of some of them. Finally, I used Stardust Stickles from Ranger to cover the top of my cupcake to give it more of a gloss and sparkle.
Hope you enjoyed! I will be entering this into SSS Monday Challenge: Celebrate.
I am a girl who loves crafting and coloring images as my favorite form of therapy. I believe that as long as you create anything from the heart, it will be greatly appreciated and will bring a smile to the recipient's face.
