Well, it is time to start posting something other than holiday cards. Does anyone else go though holiday card overload? I thought I would instead post a card I made for my friend Melinda's birthday.
To make this card, I stamped a Hero Arts cupcake onto white cardstock using black Memento ink and colored it with Copic markers. I don't seem to be physically capable of making a cupcake card without liquid applique, and this card was no exception. I layered the applique onto the card and then heated it from underneath with a heat gun. If you let the applique completely dry (say overnight) before you heat it, your applique will puff up perfectly smooth. I wanted an uneven frosting look, so I heated it right away. To finish the card, I added some paper by Basic Grey and some white pearls as an accent.
Do you ever finish a card and then wish you did something different? I really wish that my black layering circle was smaller. However, I don't have a punch as small as I would have liked. Is it possible that I need to go shopping? :)
