This week’s challenge over at C4C – 423 Crazy 4 Challenges is to make a card with a yummy dessert on it! My Design Team inspiration card this week is one of several images I bought from a digital stamp designer that is new for me. On the Kit and Clowder Facebook Page I saw one of the Clowdies posted a card made with an image I just loved. So much so I went over to Di’s Digi Stamps and bought several digital stamps. I chose this one for my card. It’s called “Ellies strawberry cupcake”
I mean seriously, how cute is this! Please, if you like digital stamps, and you love “cutsie” like me, do yourself a favor and look around this site. I’ll be featuring the others in the next few week’s (again, I am not compensated in any way by my referrals. I just love to pass on to you what I call a “SCORE”! Here’s the link Di’s Digi Stamps
Let’s make this easy card
Step 1: Size, print and color the image. I colored with Copic Markers. I also added “Chrystal Lacquer” to the elephant’s eyes and the dripping chocolate and cherry available at Amazon. Now cut out the image using the third to the largest die in the set below from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Step 2: Using the same die set pictured above, cut a lavender cardstock mat using the second to the largest die.
Step 3: Cut a mat out of darker lavender or purple cardstock using the largest die from the set below:
Step 4: Using the die set below cut all the pieces to make the smallest strawberry and the small leaves.
Step 5: Cut the pieces of one of the cup cakes from this die set below:
Step 6: Cut the word Celebrate from the die set below:
Step 7: Make the base card by scoring an 8.5″ x 11″ pc, of white cardstock at 8.5″ on the long side. Fold over and trim to 7″ x 5.5″. Now cut a rectangle from designer paper that measures 6.75″ x 5.25″. Now assemble all the elements (pic. below) to the front of your base card. Note: I added a little flower to the strawberries with a die referenced in the other products used.
Thanks so much for taking a look and I hope you’ll make a card for this week’s challenge.
