Sparkly Cupcake Happy Birthday Card For Wendy

This is the card I sent to Wendy for her birthday last week.  I had great fun with the Broadsheet Alphabet and Big Bold Birthday sets!  The idea for the sparkly cupcake came from Joanne, she made a lovely card with a trio of sparkly cupcakes which you can see here on this blog post

The card is DL sized made with Pink Pirouette CS and the scalloped edge and strip are Melon Mambo.  I used a different colour ink for each letter of the name.  I stamped the cupcake base in Early Espresso, cut it out and then ran it through my crimper.  I stamped the cupcake top, cut it out and used Heat & Stick powder to add Dazzling Diamonds.  I then added a candle, three teeny tiny flowers and a cherry.  For the cherry, I cut a small Cherry Cobbler circle and topped that with Glossy Accents to make it shiny and I popped a thin strip of Old Olive CS behind for the stem.   I cut the sentiment out with a Spellbinder's Labels Trio die.  To finish off the front, I added some felt flowers, gems and I rounded the bottom corners.

For the inside, I added a pile of gifts and a sentiment.

The envelope got a trio of paper pieced balloons.  I added a highlight to each balloon with a white gel pen.

I sent a yummy choccy bar along with the card.  I used some patterned paper to wrap it, added ribbon and a stamped and punched tag.  To make the tag I stamped the Dot, Dot, Dot stamp in Melon Mambo ink on Melon Mambo CS and punched out a Fancy Flower shape.  I stamped and cut out the W, added some pink gems and mounted it onto Olive and Espresso circles.  I had a lot of fun putting this together, I hope Wendy enjoyed receiving it!
