Be Your Beautiful Self!

Hello!  I'm so excited to share my first card from the new March Creative Cafe KOTM called - Special Celebration.  I used the add-on stamp set called "Little Cupcake."

The beautiful papers in the My Mind's Eye On Trend 2 paper pack included in the kit have gold foil accents that just called to be paired up with You're So Fine Glitters!

The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 of the light blue shimmer cardstock.  I selected one of the designer papers from the pad and cut it to 4 x 5 1/4 inches.  I wrapped the panel several times with the navy twine and tied a bow.  Now the panel can be attached to an A2 folded card.

I cut out one of the cardstock elements to use a base for my cupcake.  I matted it on a 3 1/8 x 2 1/4 inch piece of the light blue shimmer cardstock and attached it to the card as shown.

For the cupcake, stamp it on a piece of acetate with black Stazon ink.  Once dry, flip it over and apply You're So Fine Sheer Glue to the back of the image with Tiny Detailer Kit  as desired.  I used Gold Medal glitter for the wrapper, Limeade Green glitter for the leaf, Princess Pink glitter for the lower flower petals.

TIP: The lighter flower petals were made by using Diamond Clear Cool Highlight glitter and then dusting it with the Princess Pink glitter while it was still wet.

TIP:  To dry the glue a bit more quickly, I laid it on top of my Ott Lite....just a little tip for the impatient! *wink!*

Finally, I fussy cut the dried glittered image out, leaving a narrow border around the image.  

TIP:  To make the glittered piece look more opaque and brilliant, stamp an identical image on white cardstock and cut it out just inside the outer line.  Adhere your glittered piece to the top and then you will have a brilliant and sturdy element to add to your creation!

I added the image to my card with a bit of foam tape for dimension.
