Paper Craft Crew 88

PCC-088 400p

I was up for a challenge today and decided to give the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 88 a go.  These sketch challenges are a great to way to get your mojo flowing or take you outside your comfort zone which can be a really good thing!

I was looking forward to stamping with the Remember Your Birthday Stamp Set because I LOVE the “Today calls for something pink with sprinkles on top”.  So I’ll say this was my inspiration.  😎

I did stray slightly with the sentiment and rotated it 90 degrees.  The card base is Pink Pirouette embossed with Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The two strips I scored with the Simply Score Scoring Board to give a bit of subtle texture.  For the tag I used Core’dinations Whisper White punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and I added Whisper White 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.  The sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday, which I heat embossed with silver on Pink Pirouette.  I rounded both the tag and sentiment corners with the 3/16″ corner punch.  For the cupcake bases I heat embossed with silver embossing powder as well on Whisper White and cut them out by hand (I didn’t want any white to show around the edges.  I also heat embossed a Pink Pirouette strip with with clear embossing powder then punched the top with the Cupcake Builder Punch.  I adhered these to the cupcake base with a dimensional cut in half and overlapping the cupcake top slightly.  The final touch (of course) I added rhinestones, they are the “sprinkles on top”.
