Cupcake birthday wishes

This post is to share the blue balloon card I made for the new challenge on the
As always, the challenge is Anything Goes.


The sponsor for this challenge is:

Digi Doodle Studios

Today I have used the Jasper's Cupcake digital stamp from Digi Doodle Studios, one of our generous sponsors for this challenge to make some birthday cards.

You can read about red card HERE or by clicking on the photo below.

I opened the image in Silhouette Studio and placed it on an 8 1/4" x 4 1/4" panel.  I created the sentiment with flourishes to match the balloon string (font details and below) and layered it over the image.  I printed the image panel on a sheet of A4 X-Press It blending card, heat set, trimmed to size and coloured with Copic markers.  There were some slight gaps between the flourishes between the words of the sentiment and where I joined it to the balloon string, so I carefully filled them in with a 0.03 black Multiliner.  If you click on the image below, you will see the gaps, yes, they're small, but once you know they're there, you just can't ignore them.

I used heavy smooth white cardstock, a scoreboard and bone folder to make card bases and liquid adhesive to secure the image panels in place.

Here is Jasper with his blue balloon.

Looks can be deceiving ...
... this card is a huge 8 1/4" wide and the sentiment is very long.



NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
