Today, we are featuring the new "Cupcake Birthday" set.
For my card, I decided to go with a "vintage 50's homespun" feel. When I saw this cherry paper from Graphic 45, I knew I had to pair it with the large cupcake stamp. The other papers used are Ripened Tomato and Spring Grass from Mark's Finest Papers. I stamped the cupcake, colored it with Copic markers, then went over it with a Warm Gray 1 Copic marker to give it a slightly more subdued look. I used a Martha Stewart doily border which is also reminiscent of the 50's feel. To complete the card, I added gingham ribbons and a plastic cherry from Mary Engelbreit.
Here's another way you can use this stamp set. I recently made this decorated gift tin, which could be used for a small gift or gift card.
