Here we are back to posting in the wee morning hours. I didn't have time to share this card before work so here I am at 3 am :) I hope the rest of you are dreaming sweet dreams as I type this . . .
The sketch I used is from Card Positioning Systems it's really a lovely idea to start with
Cupcake Inspirations is delightful
I die cut the hearts using my Cricut (George and Basic Shapes) and then colored them with Worn lipstick. I wanted the color to be a gradual change so I used varying layers of color. I outlined them with Glossy Accents, covered the entire piece with beads (Create a Craft Seed Beads, Satin Multicolor) and pushed them into the glue. After I let them set for a minute I dumped off the excess and pushed in any over hanging ones. I then covered all the beads in another coat of Glossy Accents and let them dry overnight. I also added a half moon of stardust stickles on the top right to mimic the sprinkles in the photo.
I used two scraps (Prima, Breathe Collection) I had left over from my song bird card. I adhered the blue one flat to my white card base, the pink scrap I punched (EK Success) and cut down to a small strip.
For the sentiment I cut a 1 x 3 piece of white and rounded two of the corners. I stamped my sentiment (Hampton Art, Hugs and Kisses) in black. I wanted them to look like stickers so I covered them in Glossy Accents. I also added more stardust stickles to the inside of the heart. Once dry I adhered it to my card and then adhered my pink strip over it.
I threaded the buttons (Oriental Trading) with white and added them with glue dots.
I still felt like the card needed something so I drew a black border with my gel pen and a ruler.
At last I adhered my sprinkled hearts with foam.
and tomorrow maybe I'll get cupcakes :)
