Make Life Sweet Card

Hello! Dawn Rene here to share a card I made with The Rubber Cafe's May Creative Cafe Kit of the Month. The background was made with Tim Holtz distressed paints. Modeling paste and stencils were used to add some texture. The adorable cupcake stamps were colored with Faber-Castell Gelatos mixed with water.

Here is a picture of the card...

Here are the steps I went through to create the card.

I cut a piece of white cardstock from the kit 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". I put various colors of Tim Holtz distressed paints on my craft mat, sprayed a little water on the mat, and circled the card stock through the paints on the mat.

After the background paint dried, I torn a couple strips of patterned paper from the kit and adhered them to the background. I used modeling paste and two different stencils to add some texture. After the modeling paste dried, I splattered some brown ink on the card as well.

I stamped one of the cupcake images on white cardstock with brown ink, colored them in with Gelatos, and cut them out. I love the Gelatos because you can add water, mix colors together, and apply like water colors.

I cut a strip of the kraft paper from the kit and used a crimp roller to make it look like corrugated board.

I stamped the sentiment "Make Life Sweet" on a piece of white card stock and cut it out. Then I distressed the edges of the kraft strip, cupcakes, and sentiment with brown ink and white paint.

I glued down twine and the sentiment on the card. Then I taped down a piece of ribbon - gathering sections to make pleats.

The corrugated kraft strip and the cupcakes were adhered with pop-up foam to add dimension. I adhered the piece to a 6" x 6" piece of pink card stock from the kit and then glued the entire front to a 6" x 6" card base.
