Hello Cupcake, Birthday Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

I don't visit Split Coast Stampers as much as I used to do.  I mostly look around on Pinterest now a days!  But today I was on Split Coast Stampers and I ran across this card.  I LOVED the whole frame idea.  Though their frame was different and so was the bottom edging. But I like it just the same.  You can see the original card here.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  This piece was cut on the 8-1/2" side.  This card opens at the bottom (the fold is at the top).  

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that I taped a 1-3/4" piece of the Soft Sea Foam Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the 6" x 6" Subtles pack.  

Next I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White and using the smallest of the "Delicate Lace" die cuts, I die cut the bottom edge.  Then I trimmed the straight end so the 4-1/2" x 4".  I taped it on top of the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White.  The lacy edge allows the stripes of the DSP to show through.  I really like that look.  

Then I stamped the pieces to the cupcake.  There are four, the bottom, the "cake" part, the frosting and the heart. I stamped the bottom and the heart using Soft Sea Foam ink.  I stamped the "cake" part using Soft Suede ink and the frosting was done using Petal Pink ink. I die cut those four pieces.  I taped the "cake" piece to the cupcake bottom using snail on the edge and then I added a little bit of scotch tape to hold it together better on the backside.  I used Dimensionals to set it in place.  I added the frosting with Dimensionals.  I didn't add the heart until later.

I needed to figure out how to make a cute frame. The frame in the original card has the scallops on the inside.  SO cute.  But I didn't have a die like that so I'm working with what I have.  I used the scalloped square die for the outer edge, the stitched square die for the next frame and a smaller square for the center opening.  I die cut the outer two first. I wasn't paying attention or I could have done all three at the same time because they all fit within each other.  But now you know, so you can save yourself a whole 30 seconds!!! LOL  I did cut the Petal Pink card stock on the paper cutter. It measures 2-1/8" x 2-1/8".  

I put the two frame pieces together, face side down and I took some Washi tape and taped them together. Scotch tape will work for this too. I just wan't sure what I was doing at the time. The frame pieces were now one.

I stamped the words from the "Hello Cupcake" set using black Memento ink.  Then I lined the frame up to see how it looked and I taped the frame to the word piece.  I set the frame in place using snail tape.

I set the cupcake pieces in place using Dimenisonals. 

And for the final touch I added some sequins from the "Iridescent Sequins" assortment pack.  I glued them in place and I also glued the heart.  I had set it aside because I didn't want to take the glue out for just one thing when I knew I would be using it for the sequins.

I added Wink of Stella to the heart and then card was done.  I think it's just TOO stinkin' cute and I really LOVE that frame!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
