Birthday cupcake card

Here is a fun Birthday card. I really enjoyed making this one.

I stamped the cupcake from the Simple Birthday Thanks stamp on three times, on Real Red card stock for the cherry section, onto a piece of Whisper White card stock that has been swirled using a shaving cream technique and a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock for the base.

I cut out each section right on the line. Run the base of your cupcake through your Paper Crimper, wrap a piece of Pretty in Pink Tafetta ribbon around the base and tie into a pretty knot.
The frosting area needed something so I first added on 1/4" Chocolate Chip circles onto desired areas then applied Two Way Glue and Dazzling Diamond to each.

Using Stampin' Dimensionals I pieced the cupcake back together onto the base of my card. This makes the cupcake pop off the card.

·      Fill your container with shaving cream and use your wooden stick to smooth it out a bit.
·      Add several drops of each of your re-inker colors to your shaving cream.
·      Mix Shaving Cream and re-inker in a swirling motion continue to mix until you like the design you like
·      Press cardstock into shaving cream. Make sure to the card front is completely coated.
Take paper towel and wipe away shaving cream in swirling motion, let dry and complete card.

Here is another great example of how to use the Shaving Cream technique. It really makes beautiful Easter Eggs.(This card features the In Colors from last year and A Good Egg stamp set.)
