Enjoy Today

I'm catching up on my Viva la Verve sketch cards before the end of the month.  Here's my card for last week's sketch.  Look for this week's later on today . . .

Enjoy Today card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Verve Stamps
I colored up the large cupcake from Verve's Small Packages set to serve as my focal image. After cutting it out, I added a bit of glitter to give it a sugar-encrusted look.  The cupcake was adhered to a panel with my favorite pattern combo--dots and stripes.  Here, I used a narrow strip of grosgrain ribbon from my scrap pile to hide the seam between the two patterns.  The panel was edged along the bottom with a festive pennant die cut.  I stamped the "enjoy today" sentiment next to the cupcake, then adhered the patterned piece to a pale pink cardstock panel.  The finished panel was layered on to a pale gray card base.

Materials Used:
Small Packages stamp set, Pennant Trim die (Verve Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose cardstock, rose grosgrain ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin' Up!); Grout Gray cardstock (My Favorite Things); Bundle of Joy-Dots and Stripes and Homefront-Dots and Stripes 6x6 paper pads (Echo Park); foam tape


  1. Looks good enough to eat! Cute card, Lori.
