Bring on the cake!

I had a lovely little workshop last Sunday for a fairly new customer, Tanya. We were meeting to make 3 cards together for $12. These are always fun classes because it allows everyone to try out a few different ideas and techniques and play with many of Stampin' Up's wonderful tools.

One of the requests for Tanya's workshop was a girlie birthday card. This colour combo came to me in a lovely way - I had some melon mambo cardstock out and just popped it on my desk with a few scraps that were already there which happened to be in Daffodil delight, Peach parfait and Regal rose! I found it to be such a fun and girly combo!

I have used the delightful and very handy Cupcake punch for this card. This is currently available in the mini catalogue as is the cute pom pom trim seen here in Tangerine tango and Daffodil delight. The melon mambo background and the cupcake base have been embossed in the bigshot with the polkadot folder.
Also in the mini is this fantastic Birthday greetings set called Bring on the cake. This is where the cute sentiment comes from and we also stamped Happy Birthday on the inside of the card and coloured it in using the Stampin' write markers.

Happy Stamping!
Love, Claire
