Biggest Wish – Happy Birthday

One last deadline for today…

…the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (#462).  To complete the card, I chose the Colors and Theme from the Cookie Challenge (#166) and added the Subject suggested by the Make My Monday Challenge (#169).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (7” x 6” scored at 3½”) Pacific Point cardstock for a (6” x 3½”) Mini Slim-Line card.
  • Background Panel: (5¾” x 3¼”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The HAPPY and birthday words from the Biggest Wish stamp set were stamped directly to the panel.  HAPPY with Poppy Parade ink and birthday with Pacific Point ink.
    • The panel was then dry-embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Pennants and Cross Strip: Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Poppy Parade cardstock scraps.
    • Using dies from the retired Stitched Triangles Dies set, the Pennants were die-cut from Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point and the Open Triangle Strip was die-cut from Poppy Parade.
  • Focal Image – Cupcakes: (1¼” x 4”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The Cupcake image from the retired Wagon Full of Fun stamp set was stamped twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
    • The Cupcakes were quickly water-colored with the Fine-Tipped Water Painter Brush. Candles – Pacific Point; Icing (Strawberry) – Poppy Parade; and Paper Liners and Flame – Daffodil Delight.
    • Once dry, the Cupcakes were fussy-cut with Paper Snips.

All of the elements were adhered to the card base to match the sketch.  A bright and fun birthday card.  Who doesn’t like a Cupcake?
