Happy Friday everyone!!! I’m super excited to be sharing inspiration for Cupcake Inspirations’ 500th Challenge! This is amazing and Newton’s Nook is a sponsor so we’re playing along.
I decided to go a little bold and wild for their awesome birthday theme this challenge.
To create my card, I started by die cutting my scalloped square and then I stamped and heat embossed the zoo party image. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen to watercolor the scene. I love coloring these critters up! It’s so relaxing and fun!
Next, I blended picked raspberry and blueprint sketch distress inks on a panel and spritzed it with water. The panel was adhered to a card base and the zoo party image was popped up with foam tape. I die cut one of the speech bubbles from the Newton’s Nook set and I heat embossed a sentiment on it. This is popped up as well.
Then I die cut a banner from the Frames & Flags set and another sentiment was heat embossed on it. It’s popped up with foam tape but tucked under the edge of the square panel.
I finished the card off with Nuvo Crystal Drops in morning dew scattered throughout the card design. I love the subtle interest this gives without distracting from those awesome critters!
I hope you’ve found some fun inspiration to create a fantastic birthday themed card to play along with the Cupcake Inspirations 500th Challenge!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
