Bonjour et Hello!

I was inspired by Marie Bennett's card.  

Poor Vintage Leaves stamp set tends to get overlooked in the catalogue 
so I thought I would bring it front and center.
I made 2 versions - portrait and landscape format

Portrait version  (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" scoring at 4-1/4")


 I used the 1/8" hole punch on each side
 of the card for two purposes

                              1) to create a hole on the fold for the 
                                  linen thread to slip through
                              2) to keep the linen thread in place

 Landscape version

  Close up 


I started with both set of leaves the same way:
Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla CS 
 Rich Razzleberry ink on Crushed Curry CS
Copper Foil paper was used to die cut the maple leaf.

Set of leaves on the left side, I sponged lightly
 Set of leaves on the right side, more ink was added to intensify the colours

SS: Vintage Leaves
CS:  Very Vanilla; Crushed Curry; Copper Foil Paper
INK:  Cajun Craze; Rich Razzleberry; Crushed Curry; Old Olive 
Others:  Linen Thread; 1/8" punch; Leaflet Thinlits; Seasonal Layers Thinlits;
Sponge Dauber; Petal Burst TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder);

Bonjour et Hello!

Welcome to the Seashore Stamper 
July Birthday Theme Blog Hop.

I wanted to make a birthday card that was 
neutral gender so it can be given 
at a moments notice. 

It's a simple card but uses multiple stamp sets.

I have them, why not use them....all. 

Dimensionals are used for the icing portion 
of the cupcake.

The sentiment inside is more suited for a sundae 
but cherries can be found on Black Forest cake and cupcakes, too!

Stamp Sets:
Cool Treats
 Christmas Pines
 Happy Birthday Gorgeous
Sweet Cupcakes

Card Stock:
Basic Black
Whisper White 

Marina Mist
Soft Suede
Chocolate Chip
Early Espresso
Real Red

Cupcake Cutout Framelits
Layering Square Framelits
Stampin' Dimensionals
Fast Fuse Adhesive
