eat (cup)cake!

Here's a birthday card that I made a little while back. I had just bought liquid pearls for the first time, and I had to make them look like icing! 
I just piled on the liquid pearls and swirled them around. It really looks like icing! Well, shiny icing. Hmm ... I guess in real life I wouldn't eat a shiny iced cupcake, but in the paper crafting world, it's cute! :)

The border was done with masking of the center and a paisley CHF backgrounder. This is a simple and quick card, but I think it would make a lot of people happy! 
Paper: Neenah Paper Environment (desert storm)
Ink: Ranger Adirondack (espresso), Stampin' Up Classic (wild wasabi, orchid opulence)
Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms (paisley backgrounder), Kim Hughes (birthday bash)
Etc: Ranger Inkssentials white gel pen, Liquid Pearls (white opal), Stickles (yellow), Copics (G28, RV17)
Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,

  1. LOVE this card! Super cute! I'd eat that cupcake - is it gluten-free? ~;o)

  2. Very cute! I love the icing! That paisley stamp is great too!

  3. I just realized that you started putting your supplies at the end of your posts... GREAT IDEA!!

  4. I want to touch this card. It's probably bumpy! :)

    (I always like touching textured cards. That's why I love letterpress so much. Too bad it's so expensive. I'm thinking about getting new letterpress business cards, but it'd be too pricey I think.)

    Do you and Mike have any cupcake places near you? I'm still waiting for a Sprinkles to open up down here.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. Each and every one puts a giant smile on my face! :)
