Sprinkled with Love

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Rebecca Ednie our challenge hostess for the month finishes off her month with one last challenge.

This week Rebecca has given us an Inspiration Challenge - be inspired by this photo. Please use a cake or mint/aqua, coral, gold and white or ivory. Brownie points for doing both

Rebecca has given us the option of either mint or aqua in the color combo, so I went for aqua on my card as I knew I had inks and cardstock etc that would coordinate.

As I had recently picked up the new Sprinkles Turnabout from Concord & 9th, I wanted to play with that for my background this week. So I stamped it onto my ivory cardstock using two colors rather than 4. I still stamped it out 4 times, just alternated between the aqua and the coral inks.

For my card I have used the Snowman Twist Circle Pop-up card (without the snowman) from Karen Burniston for the base of my card. I was able to join two 6 x 6 pieces of decorated cardstock together to create the base of my card.  I then layered this piece onto a piece of folded coral cardstock. I have attached the circle layer of the twist circle to the upper part of the arm rather than the lower section, doing this allows you to display the card standing upright rather than lying down. 

I used both the large and small cupcakes from Karen's Cupcake Pop-up die set, I die cut the frosting from gold cardstock so that I used the 'gold' needed for the challenge somewhere on my card. Once I had assembled all my cupcakes I decorated the frosting using Nuvo drops.

I added two of the sentiments from the Sprinkles Turnabout stamp set to the inside of my card.

For the front of my card I used another piece of background paper that I created using the Sprinkles Turnabout stamp set. 

I used the largest label from the Katherine Label Pop-up set to cut a piece of ivory cardstock and two from coral cardstock. I then cut one of the coral pieces in half vertically and the other horizontally and layered them behind the ivory label so I had a border all around.

Using masking I stamped the "Sprinkled with Love" sentiment which is normally a two line sentiment (like those on the inside of the card) so that it was a single line and die cut the sentiment using a banner die.

Here is one final photo showing my card as it is closing, the circle part of the card "twists" to the opposite direction as it closes.
