I just love that little cup cake from the Hero Arts Everything Smiles Stamp & Cut set. And I think it’s just so cute to use on a birthday card. With the help of my MISTI, it’s easy to stamp a background using it.
On a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch white card stock I stamped and watercolored the cupcakes background. Then I place it on top of a white card case, secure with washi tape, and I die cut the speech bubble both layer at the same time. This ensures the windows are aligned.
Next I align the sentiment (‘sweet’ from the Color Layering Pomegranate, and ‘birthday wishes’ from the Many Birthday Messages set) so it’s inside the window and stamped in black.
Then I glued a piece of acetate on the back of the cupcake panel, and another on the front of the card base. I put foam adhesieve all around the windor on the card front, filled with sequins and beads, peeled off the backing of the foam adhesive and placed the cupcake panel on top carefully aligning the window. You noticed something wrong here?! Yeah I was so excited creating my shaker window I forgot to put foam adhesive around the outside edge of the card. Hmmm… what to do. Well I just glued the cupcake panel onto the card base. The shaker is sandwiched in between. It works. LOL I actully made another booboo but I think it’s minor enough that you don’t really see it. But if you do I’d love to hear it. Leave me a comment. 😀 Lastly I rounded the corners and add Diamond and Star Dusk Stickles onto the frostings.

Great idea and love the bubble window and your patience in water-coloring each cupcake. So great to see through to the inside of the card and its “sweet” message.
