Cupcake Ants


Hi everyone! I've been in the mood for making birthday cards lately.  This card was created using the image and sentiment from the newly released Cupcake Ants digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.


My card base is True Black layered with White Cardstock then Tempting Turquiose stitched around the edges. On the right hand side I added a strip of Pixie Pink finished using the Scallop Edge Punch. The shadow layer is also Pixie Pink. The sentiment and image are printed on White Cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers and a spica pen. I paper pierced around the edges and layered the image on True Black. To embellish the card I added clear gem in each corner of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!


CREATIVE DESIGN:
  • Stamps: Cupcake Ants (Doodle Pantry)
  • Paper: True Black and White Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Pixie Pink and Tempting Turquoise (Stampin' Up)

That is so cute, Karen!

I'm not sure how I feel about those ants getting that cupcake, though.
Maybe I like cake a little TOO much!
