A Yummy Happy Birthday Card

 A Yummy Happy Birthday Card

Hello friends! Today I want to share a yummy happy birthday card that was inspired by four challenges this week: Freshly Made Sketches #495, Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #105 (fun with food), Simon Says Stamp's current Monday Challenge (food and/or drink), and the current Time Out Challenge (#192-hungry). Since the three later challenges were all food-themed, I felt that they have to go together. 

As I started thinking about the Freshly Made Sketch, all I could think about is my Sweet Friends stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn, and how they would make a great birthday card and the card quickly came together from there.

To make the card, I started by stamping the cupcake, donut, strawberry and froyo images twice on some white card stock with Twilight VersaFine Clair and then heat embossed them with Ranger's Holographic heat embossing powder. I colored them all with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut all of them out with their corresponding die cuts. 

Next, I added some sparkle to all of the treats--the chocolate cupcake was covered with Copper Stickles Glitter Glue and the bottom froyo was covered with Sprinkled Sugar Stickles (which is discontinued), and the donuts, pink cupcake and both donuts were painted with some Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust Shimmer from Lawn Fawn. I set all of these treats aside to dry.

Meanwhile, I went into my stash and pulled out the background. I had made this a long time ago with a panel that I had ink blended and smooshed and then had added some Gina K Gold Glitz Glitter Gel with a stencil in my stash and then had die cut with an A2-sized stitched die cut. In addition, I pulled a strip of paper from a previous gel press print that is a combination of turquoise, pink and purple colors. I then used the Simon Says Stamps Painted Happy Birthday wafer die to cut a piece of white card stock from Concord & 9th's Formals Foil Paper pack (which has black, white and granite/dark gray paper).

To assemble the card, I went back and die cut additional layers of the froyo and cupcake and glued 2-3 layers of scrap card stock behind both froyos and the chocolate cupcake for dimension. I then glued the pink, blue and purple strip diagonally across the card base from the lower left to the upper right part of the card. I then glued the word happy to the center of the strip and then glued the word Birthday to the card base. Next, I glued the treats to the panel. I tucked a few of the strawberries onto the panel close to the treats and attached them with more liquid glue. Finally, I added a few pink and white sequins from Catherine Pooler's Summer City sequin mix and then glued the whole panel to a white card base.

Thanks for reading!
