Hello Stamping Friends!! Hope all is well. Very busy here with travel for work and some home remodeling projects (all good stuff), but haven't had much time to make my normal visits to all my friends in Blogland or on SCS lately. Things will be back to normal here very soon, so please know I'm thinking about you all :)!!
Meanwhile I have a new card to share - for today's ODBD SLC #149. This week we're having fun with shaped cards - we're making projects that are anything but square or rectangular in shape.
I had fun with this one! My card is for a special little girl, and it's made using ODBD's Cupcake Plate stamp. To make it I stamped the Gingham background in pink, then stamped over with the Cupcake Stamp twice - once for the main image and a second time for the popped cherry and candies. Then I stamped the Happy Birthday and delicately cut out all those elements.

Then I sprinkled some chunky clear art glitter on the frosting, swished Liquid Pearls on the candy icing, dotted bright red Stickles on the Cherry and covered the cupcake plate/stand in glassy glaze and added foam tape to the back.
Here's a close-up of the Cupcake:

To make the back panels I stamped two layers in Gingham - these are both the same color, but one is stamped off to get a lighter look. These layers are die cut using SB Peony dies. The circle panels include three die cuts in the smaller panel - one in Black, then two offset each in a different Pink color. The black panel is dotted with white liquid pearls - all three layers are adhered as one panel and popped over the card base.
Here's another photo showing all the layers and dimension:
