Elegant Birthday
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  I don't know about you, but I am always in need of a birthday card.  Luckily, the Spring Bunnies stamp and die set came with cupcakes, a balloon, a present, and a cake stand as well as sweet bunnies.  I chose to use the line of cupcakes from the set because I knew they would be fun to color.

To make the card, I stamped and cut out the cupcakes using Black Versafine ink and 140lb watercolor paper.  I colored the cupcakes with Zig Clean Color markers and softened the colors with a waterbrush.  To make the card more elegant, I used a clean design and layered everything onto some Circle Ivory handmade paper from Birch Press Design.  The pattern of the paper is embossed and has a pearlescent shimmer.  Here is a closeup to see shine of the paper better:


For extra sparkle, I added some sequins to the card and some Stickles to the cupcakes.








Sweet and adorable. Love the texture background. x

I was just going to write adorable, too! Those cupcakes really are! The whole card is beautiful!
