A quick card share today.
If you haven't noticed, I've done a LOT of birthday cards lately. Partly because my daughter's birthday is this week so birthdays are on my mind. Also, I seem to go through phases and I'm in the mood to beef up my birthday card stash so that's what I've been doing. I haven't posted a card using the Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit yet and it is perfect for birthdays. I definitely wanted to try out that adorable cupcake stamp. I've also been in the mood for chocolate and I hadn't seen any mint chocolate chip cupcakes so that is the direction I went.
I'm always surprised how much I love the white against the Kraft and wonder why I don't do it more often. The white heat embossing, vellum, and the faux stitching soften the over all look. The Impression Obsession Fluff background stamp is one of my favorites when I want to go for a tone on tone look.
I added Star Dust Stickles to the cupcake frosting and than I went over the chocolate sprinkles again after the glitter dried to darken the color. You can see the difference between the two pictures.
