I started with stamping the cake and the champagne from the Happily Ever After stamp set on smooth white cardstock and coloured them with Copics. I imagined a pink-gold card so I kept the colours simple. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I also die cut 4 frames from gold cardstock using the Cloudy frames dies and used liquid glue to adhere them together. I added heavy weight vellum to the back of it.
Then I worked on the background. On Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped the Sprinkles background stamp with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. As this ink is a slow drying one, I could easily heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. Then I applied Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on the whole panel very gently.
When the background was dry I die cut it with the largest die from the Stitched Rectangle 2 die set. I assembled the card on a top folding white card base using 3D foam squares to pop up the cake and the parts of the champagne glasses hanging off the frame.
I also stamped a sentiment (I love the pretty hand written font) on white cardstock with Delicata Gold Pigment ink. It matched my frame so well! As I was afraid that the ink smears, I covered it with clear embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun. I fussy cut it with my scissors leaving a bit of a white frame and popped it up on the bottom of the frame.
As a finishing touch I covered the champagne with a clear shimmer pen and added glossy accents to the decoration. Such a happy card with a lot of shiny details to “touch”.
I hope you liked today’s inspiration and will come back soon for more!
Until next time, happy crafting!
