For our friend’s little girl’s first birthday card I was a little bit stuck for ideas. I didn’t fancy doing another card with balloons, like I did for the boys’ birthdays, but I don’t have many “girlie” stamps. I also needed something quick to make to fit in around looking after the twins, as I had left it quite late to make the card.
Then it hit me – cupcakes!
With just the one candle 🙂
I love this sentiment stamp, from the Delightful Dozen stamp set. So I used the cupcake, the candle and the sentiment, along with some of my favourite red/pink, Raspberry Ripple and some sparkles! The cupcake wrapper is stamped in Soft Suede, and the cupcake icing is second generation stamping to give definition between the icing and the candle/ ribbon embellishments. Add a touch of So Saffron or Summer Starfruit for the candle flame, and job’s a good-un’!
I hope Izzy liked it.
