Hey, Cupcake!

Since DRS Designs last release a few weeks ago, I've been working diligently on increasing my stash of sympathy cards.  I've noticed that my birthday card stash has been depleted as well, and now it's time to replenish them. Here's a rather clean and simple one I made using the new Hey Cupcake Greeting (365B) and the Cherry Top Cupcake image (463E)

I colored the cupcake with Copic markers and shaded it with brown ink while it was in a Nestability die. I went for a realistic look by adding Diamond Glaze to the cherry to give it a shiny, wet look. (Sorry that's hard to see in this picture!) I matted it with red card stock, which really helped make the cherry stand out. Next, I worked on the sentiment banner and shaded it the same way as I did for the image and matted it with red card stock as well. I embellished the banner by adding a small paper flower and adhered it to the banner with a petite pink brad. I adhered 2 pink panels in the background and stamped them both with the Splatter Background (855H) and red ink and then assembled the card front as shown.  Three red rhinestones placed in the upper right corner were the final touch. Cute and easy, don't you think? ;-)
Thanks for stopping by!
