Frosted Pink Gold Cupcake Card

Hi y’all! I’m participating in my first Craft Roulette Challenge! This birthday card is pretty different from my normal style but, I think it’s super fun! The colors were inspired by the Color Hue Challenge.

Texture and shine! 2 of my favorite things in a card! For the white background, I used an embossing folder to give it some dimension. I angled cut it and offset it with gold foil paper. I tried something different this time around and embossed a sentiment on the foil paper! It turned out better than I expected. Thankfully the happy birthday fit perfectly!

For the frosting I ink blended 2 different shades of Altenew Dye ink onto a light pink paper. For the candle, I alternated between gold foil and gold sparkle paper. The cupcake liner I altered with a muted gold textured paper and a foil gold paper. I backed the card on pink. I hope y’all enjoyed this card and it inspires you to take a shake at a handmade birthday card soon!

I have never been somebody who things just come naturally to me. I have gone from craft to craft trying to be ‘good’ at something. I finally realized that I used to love art, but I stopped and followed other fads. I had become growingly frustrated with projects that required computers. I mean the Cricut software is very temperamental. I was feeling like yes, I can do that stuff but, do I enjoy it? Well no. I spent most of my time being frustrated. So, I decided to get into card making. Along the way I discovered all of these amazing things people do with markers. I watched so many hours of YouTube videos and took various online courses. Then, I practiced, and I practiced some more. I took my markers everywhere. I wasn’t doing it for others but, I was doing it for me. Boy does that make a world of a difference.

I ended up being one of the top few for recognition in this contest! Super exciting! This is my first time having that happen with any contest!

Have you ever had that moment of wow; I’ve made a lot of progress! This was my moment; I was sitting waiting for my doctor to come into the room when a student doctor came in and saw me coloring the tree seen in this card. She asks me if I’m an artist. I was shocked. I love that she used that word and I love that I’m on my way to that! There really isn’t a better compliment! Have you had that moment in life, doesn’t have to be art, if so, what was it? 

Thanks for reading. Until next time,
