Beehive Cupcake Birthday
For my part of the hop, I made a birthday card using the sweet beehive cupcake and banner from my newest digital stamp set – Sweet Cupcakes Birthday Bundle. We have so many birthdays coming up on my inlaw’s side. So I’m saving this sweet card for one of them.
This is my first time coloring up the cupcake as I just finished the drawing on Sunday. The image was printed on Neenah
white 65# with a Canon Color ImageCLASS
laser printer – which is compatible with Copic markers. You can color over the lines and the printer ink would not bleed out.
I used these Copic
colors for the beehive
(Y13, Y15, Y17, Y19), bees
(Y15) and candle
(Y11, Y17, YR09, yr15). The black stripes on the cupcake wrapper were carefully drawn in with the Copic
multiliner 0.5 and the Brush M.
The black and white stripes pattern on the side panel was easily done by cutting out just the white strips, 1/4-inch width each.
Here’s how I cut and assembled the white strips. Notice, for each strip I only make partial cut into the cardstock. Next, I make a slit down the A2 black panel
and slide every other strips through the opening (photo 1 below). Then secured the strips to the back panel with double sided adhesive (photo 2). Trim off the excess outer strips, fold and adhered to the back panel (photo 3).
Inside of card, I cut Neenah white
to size 5″x8″ and with the MISTI
, stamped on the PapertreyInk’s Tucked In Birthday
sentiment. Then score, fold and adhered to the inside card.
It’s hard to tell from the photo, but I applied LOTS of sparkles on the candle, icing and bees’ wings with the Nuvo Glitter Drops
One final look at the finished card.
