This card is based on a card from the Crafts Beautiful 'Cupcakes and Cards' booklet. But I decided to give it my own little twist. I used the free backing paper that came with the magazine and adhesive ribbon. I then tried to give it a 3d look by using the DCWV ‘Sweet’ rub ons as background and then stamped the cupcakes using the 'Hero Arts cupcakes stamps' and placed them on foam pads. To continue with the 3d look I coloured them in with Marvy Le Plume pens and then built the colour up with Sakura stardust pens and put the candle on and drew over it with the stardust pens to make it look as if it was really stuck in the cake. I edged the blue glitter card behind with ink to make it have a distressed look.
