Hello Cupcake Card

Today is the day for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop and my friend Eva and I are using the following sketch for our cards today.
The Hello Cupcake Card I created today is using the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set which is a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure when you purchase $60.00 of product before shipping and taxes.

I have also used two other items from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, the Grapefruit Grove Foil paper and the Grapefruit Grove Organdy Ribbon.  I just love the holographic effect of the Grapefruit Grove Foil paper.  The Grapefruit Grove Foil comes in a pack with Lovely Lipstick Foil paper, you get 4 - 12 x 12 sheets of each.  The Grapefruit Grove Organdy Ribbon comes in a pack with Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist, you get 5 spools; 5 yards each.  This ribbon matches the colours in the Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Pack.

Here is how I created my Hello Cupcake Card:
  • Grapefruit Grove Cardstock cut at 8½ x 5½ scored at 4¼.
  • Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet (this is a Sale-A-Bration item) cut at 4 x 5¼ and run through the Big Shot using the Oh My Stars Textured Embossing Folder and then adhered to the card base.
  • Cut a strip of Grapefruit Grove Cardstock at 2 x 3½ and snip one end into a banner shape.  Cut two pieces of Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala Designer Paper at ⅝ x 3⅝ and snip one end into a banner shape.  Adhere the Gingham Gala Banner Strips to the larger Grapefruit Grove Banner and adhere to the Grapefruit Grove Foil layer as shown in the sketch.
  • Petal Pink and Whisper White Cardstock cut out with the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  The Petal Pink Rectangle is approximately 2⅝ x 4, the Whisper White Rectangle is approximately 2¼ x 3½
  • On the Whisper White Rectangle stamp the cupcake from the Hello Cupcake Stamp set (this is a Sale-A-Bration item) using Early Espresso Ink for the sentiment and bottom of the cupcake and for the frosting use Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I stamped the sprinkles using Soft Suede Ink.  
  • In the space between the cupcake and the sentiment I added a strip of the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet cut at ½ x 2¼, topped with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and the Grapefruit Grove Organdy Ribbon (this is a Sale-A-Bration item).
  • Adhere the Whisper White Rectangle to the Petal Pink Rectangle and adhere to the card using Dimensionals.
