Silver & Gold Cupcake Party

Cupcake Party

Why Silver and Gold with a dash of Strawberry Slush?

Raising 6 sons our lives were always full of fun and adventure.  Joe and I were blessed.  Our sons grew up to be charming, dynamic men and married wives that are sweet, independent, fiesty and smart enriching our lives even more.  All that to say that today is Julie's Birthday. To express how much richer our lives are because these 5 beautiful women have joined our family,  I went with silver and gold and a dash of Strawberry Slush (sweetness) for my color combo.

Cupcake Party Card Tips

  • Everything was stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder except the cupcake frosting.
  • For more Silver and Gold, I encorporated Gold Glimmer Paper, Frosted Sequins, Gold Baker's Twine and Gold Fancy Foil Vellum.
  • To add depth to my White on White card, I embossed my front panel with the Zig Zag Embossing Folder.

 On a side note, the Envelope Liner Framelit Dies are on the December 9-15 Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals.

But wait there's more.  Yeah, that's just fun to say.  For the inside I gold embossed my Birthday message from the Big News Stamp set.
