Live It Up!

I whipped up a quick birthday card today using the fabby Cling Jumbo Cupcake image from Stampendous. No joke, this cupcake is life size! Who wouldn't love getting this in the mail for their special day? It's the next best thing to a real on (and way less calories). I paired my scrumptious cucpake wit ha fun sentiment from the Whoop It Up clear stamp set (and I loved the way the little bits of happy were arranged around it in the set, so I had to add those too).

The actual card measures 9 1/4' long x 3 3/8" tall. So it fits in a regular old business envelope. I colored my cupcake with Copic markers (see detailed list below) and added Cotton Candy Stickles along with a bit of Martha Stewart bling. Now I really want a cupcake - chocolate with pink frosting preferably!

What makes this card special:
Stamps: Jumbo Cupcake, Whoop It Up (Stampendous)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up) Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Eva (Basic Grey)
Ink: Coffee Bean (Memento), Pretty in Pink (Stampin Up)
Coloring Medium: Copics ( R81, R83, R85, E25, E29, E35, E40, E43)
Accessories: Cotton Candy Stickles, Martha Stewart rhinestones, double sided May Arts ribbon
