A Delicious Birthday Card – My Favorite Things

Hi everyone! The Watercolor Circle die is so fun and versatile! For this card I created cookies with them, yum! They form the perfect cookie base, just add your toppings, et voila! Delicious cookies!

Before I’m diving into the cardmaking process, I want to mention we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts. The theme of this month is “Die Cut Only”. Head over to Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a prize!

To create the background I used the Plaid stencil and Distress Oxide Spun Sugar. For the thin stripes of the stencil I used the Simon Hurley Cross My Heart paste. This is a super fun paste which changes color when it catches the light! Once the paste had dried, I die cut the background with a slimline die.

For the base cookies, I die cut circles from Speckled Eggshell cardstock with the B2B Circles die. This paper already has a good base color for cookies. I did darken the edges with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo from which I also created splatters on top.

For the top of the cookies, I die cut circles from Ballet Slippers and Guava cardstock with the Watercolor circle die. For the Ballet Slippers circles I darkened the edges with Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick. For the Guava circles I darkened the edges with a mix of Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry. On two of the cookies I added frosting with Nuvo Drops Gloss White. On one of the cookies I added clay sprinkles.

The background panel I adhered on top of a Guava cardbase. The cookies, and Something Sweet sentiment I adhered with foam squares for dimension.

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
