Make a Wish

Here's my card for the current Fusion challenge.  I paired the sketch with elements from the inspiration photo (color scheme and cupcake theme!) to come up with this super sweet birthday card. 

Make a Wish card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Avery Elle
My pretty cupcake is from Avery Elle's Bring on the Cake stamp set.  I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out with the matching die. In a nod to the elegant decor on the cupcakes in the inspiration photo, I dressed up my cupcake with a teeny, tiny paper flower with a teeny, tiny self-adhesive pearl at the center.   The cupcake was adhered to a kraft oval using foam tape for dimension.  For the background, I covered the bottom of a white panel with a piece of pale blue embossed cardstock.  It's been a while since I used an embossed panel on a card!  I edged the embossed section with a length of delicate lace, then topped it with the cupcake image.  The "make a wish" sentiment from Avery Elle's Cupcake stamp set was stamped to the right of the image panel in kraft colored ink.  I used foam tape to adhere the finished panel to a white card base.  The little bit of dimension helps the panel to pop against the white background.

Materials Used:
Bring on the Cake and Cupcake stamp sets, Bring on the Cake dies (Avery Elle); Memento Tuxedo Black and Toffee Crunch inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Sno Cone cardstock (My Favorite Things); Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); oval dies (Spellbinders); Moroccan Screen embossing folder (Cuttlebug); white trim (Hobby Lobby); paper flower (Prima); white self-adhesive pearl; foam tape
