lime doodle: happy birthday

happy birthday

Over at There She Goes, the week before release week is know as There She Goes Again week!  This is when we (the Design Team) highlight a couple of the older TSG stamp sets to get a whole bunch of new ideas. This week the selected stamps sets are: Makea Wish, Wrapped in Joy, and Cupcake Mix & Match :) Oh and don't forget there's a sale on at TSG as they continue to celebrate their 4th birthday :)

I made this card with Cupcake Mix & Match for a teenage friend who just loves to bake. I wanted to make sure I hit the right amount of grown up feel while still being fun.

I've been noticing a trend to use glossy accents to highlight and add interest, so I went with a topping of gloss on my icing and cherry. Even though I was careful when adding the gloss and I still seem to have captured a few bubbles. Then again my cake icing is always a bit rustic so this is probably appropriate!

This photo also shows a favourite technique of mine to use dimensional adhesive to add visual interest to a simple card :)

Supplies: Stamps - There She Goes mix and match; Papers - My Mind's Eye lime twist life of the party; Dies - Lil' Inker Designs flags & tags
