Let's just start by saying that select designer series papers are 15% off during the month of June. That sale is half over! The Bright and Beautiful 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is one of those 15% off. I had to snag a couple more packs of it. It will be current through April of next year since it's in the annual catalog. That's true of all of the papers on sale.
This paper is so festive. I'm just going to say it. You need this paper!
The base of this card is one of our new colors Azure Afternoon. It's cut 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2. Cut the designer paper to 4 x 5 1/4. Add the glue around the edges of the paper and not through the center.
The Circle of Sayings bundle has the stamp set and a circle punch. It's on page 17 of the annual catalog. The punch is 2 3/8. I can't tell you how excited I am to see some more circle punches. They are so easy. The stamp set is focused on using this punch. Take the punch to the right side of the card front and slip it in as far as it will go. You can determine how high or low you go. Punch. The designer paper and card stock will come out in two parts. Use them for another project!
Let's make a frame for our circle. Take a piece of Azure Afternoon card stock and punch a hole with the 2 3/8 circle punch. Leave card stock around the hole. Now take the Stylish Shapes dies. Place the largest circle die evenly around the punched hole. Hold it in place if needed with washi tape or a sticky note and cut. Now we have our frame. Sparingly add glue around the back and adhere around the hole.
Add a piece of Basic White card stock to the inside of the card. It measures 4 x 5 1/4.
Stamp the cupcake from Circle Sayings in Memento Black in the center of the hole. Stamp the celebrate saying around the cupcake in Azure Afternoon ink.
We are using the paper piecing technique for our cupcake. Pick a piece of Bright & Beautiful paper for the icing of the cupcake. Stamp the cupcake on it. It's ok to just add ink to the icing part of the stamp. Now pick another piece for the cupcake paper. Use paper snips to cut out the images. Cut right on the black lines. Hint: It would work nicely to use Adhesive Sheets behind your designer paper. Then when the images are cut, just peel off the backing and you have sticker!!! Add these to the cupcake. Use Wink of Stella all over the cupcake.
Can you see the Wink of Stella?
Add a bow using the Azure Afternoon ribbon from the Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack on page 143. Use a glue dot.
For a little more glitter, color some Basic Rhinestone Jewels with Dark Azure Afternoon blend. Let them dry before adding them to your card.
So you've already seen the inside of the card right through the hole in the front. I don't think you can see it, but I did color in a few of the stars in the paper with my Wink of Stella. It just adds a little something.
