More glittery birthday wishes

IMG_2072I had a few Challenges in mind when I made this card, and I really want to thank Chrissie for her layout inspiration, here .

I used the smooshing technique to create a ‘peachy’ background for my cupcake. Once dry, I die-cut it to get a small rounded square. I mounted it onto some fun foam, before adhering it to a slightly larger die-cut square. This was then applied to the base cardstock, followed by the stamped sentiment.

To add a bit of fun, I glittered up the icing, using a two-way glue-pen. I ‘coloured’ the icing in using the glue pen, then rubbed some crystal glitter into it (shhhh – don’t tell anyone, but its actually eye make-up, which I inherited from my sister. She thought I might like it for my cards. How awesome is she??)

The glitter looks fab – take a closer look:


And then, a pearl as the final embellishment!

Very CAS!

  1. Love this card! And the eye makeup idea is great! My daughter has some ridiculously glittery eye make-up and when she wears it I can’t resist saying “Um, you have some glitter on your face?” Now I know a good way to use it up more quickly!
