Mmmm, I'm so hungry for a cupcake right now! Remember this image that I posted a few days ago with my Copic techniques. Well, here's the finished card. A pretty and simple birthday card that will go into my card stash....my ladies are wanting me to bring my basket to school so I need to make some refill cards! This card uses a Memory Box card base and Memory Box pink polka dot paper from the Sugar collection. The images are from Karen Lockhart and can be purchased from Ellen's store as well as the papers and the fun decorative pearls that I used on each cupcake. You can see the packaging sitting underneath the cards. I love those little embellishments! Ribbon is from May Arts. Image was colored with Copic markers and a Copic Colorless Blender.
Here's a close up of some shimmer that I added to the cupcakes. I used my Copic Spica Silver Glitter Pen to make foil cupcake liners.
Tip of the day: If you are wanting to use ribbon on your card front, try this. Tie the ribbon around the card front. Then adhere the bottom colored mat underneath the ribbon. Attach dimensionals to the back of the main image and then adhere that OVER the ribbon. This helps the main image from having a hump in it and possibly popping off of your card front. It also makes your card look like you put some real thought into it.
Questions: By now many of you have received your Copic marker and Spellbinder's dies. Any questions that you have? I try to answer questions from your responses but sometimes I miss some.
One question that was asked was about storing Copic markers horizontally. I had them packed vertically in my little pink tote bag in some previous photos. I have sent this question to my Copic friends and am awaiting an answer......but I can probably guess that storing them horizontally is probably a good thing. This helps the ink to not settle in one end of your marker, thus preventing the other end from drying out. I'll let you know what I hear back. And typically I do store my markers horizontally unless I'm taking my little tote with me somewhere. Thanks for the question!!
