January Hello Cupcake Card Club
It is almost here! I can not wait! I took the month of December off from card club and boy do I miss it! Creating cards for holiday, sale-a-bration and all occasions is so much fun! January kicks off the Sale-a-bration Card Club. Take a look at one of the January Hello Cupcake Card Club which was inspired by friend Jennifer. I switched it oh so slightly but her card caught my eye and I ran with it!
Bright and Cheery!
I have to admit, I love bright colors. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bunch of colors but when all paired together like in the above photo I just have to smile! Do you find yourself smiling? I chose to pair the stamp set, Hello Cupcake with the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper Pack. Because I picked that paper, I knew the Sale-a-bration Organza Ribbon Pack coordinated PERFECTLY with it. However, I did not realize those yummy Gingham Gala Sequins also were created in the same colors! WOO HOO! I love how the simple stamping of this card finished with the sequins and glimmer strip makes the ideal birthday card!
I stamped in Smoky Slate for the base of the cupcake and then used the matching colors for each gingham color (1″ x 5″.) Choosing Basic Gray Card Stock instead of Smoky Slate because I felt it made the gingham color pop more. The Silver Strip (1/2″ x 5″) added just the right amount of bling not to over power the yummy cupcake. I will say, I went back and forth with the sentiment on a stitched shape framelit, however, I am very happy I just stamped it. Lately, Stampin’ Up! has encouraged us to do simple stamping. Less at times is more and in this case, I do feel the Sweet Wishes looks just fine stamped on the card front. The sequins were added last to balance out all the elements.
