I came across a new website today, Taylored Expressions. I thought the sketch challenge for this week was very interesting and that I would give it ago. On the website they have a cute cupcake in the banner and it gave me inspiration to make the card I made. I started with a base card made from Chocolate Chip cardstock. I then embossed a piece of White cardstock using the Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dot and adhered it to the base card. I then punched a piece of scrap Red Cardstock with a Scalloped Border Punch an adhered it to the lower section of the embossed White cardstock. I then stamped 4 mini cupcakes using chocolate Chip ink on Chocolate Chip cardstock and then another 4 mini cupcakes on Pink Pirouette cardstock using Red Riding Hood ink. I also stamped a large cupcake on Chocolate Chip Cardstock using Chocolate Chip ink and a large cupcake on White cardstock using Red Riding Hood ink. Still using the Red ink and White cardstock, I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Whimsical Words stamp set, as well as a candle and a present from the Party Hearty stamp set. I also stamped the present on Chocolate Chip cardstock. I then cut out the all the cupcakes, the presents and the candle. I trimmed some white cardstock that I then adhered the Chocolate Chip bottoms and Pink pirouette tops of the small cupcakes. I then adhered this to a piece of red cardstock that I was using as backing. On another piece of White cardstock I adhered the Chocolate Chip bottom and the Red Riding Hood top of the large cupcake and the red candle. I placed this next to the mini cupcakes in the right hand corner of the red cardstock. Underneath I trimmed the whimsical Words that I has stamped and placed it sideways so that it lined up with the cupcake above. To finish off, I trimmed the White present and placed it on top of the Chocolate Chip present I had stamped and then I trimmed the outer circle and adhered it to the card using a foam pad. To finish off the card I adhered the Red Riding Hood cardstock to the embossed Whisper White cardstock and there you have my take on this sketch.
