Make a Difference

Make a Difference by purchasing the Sprinkles of Life photopolymer stamp set.  Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 for each set to Ronald McDonald House Charities. And you will be able to make this fun birthday card.

There are several fun things on this card.  The background – that is on of the Happy Patterns decorative masks – there are 4 in the new set.  And I used a Sponge Dauber to add the Mint Macaron to the background.

Then there is the little tag with the ice cream cone and the cherry.  So there is a trick with the cherry – I used two different punches.  It’s the Tree builder punch with coordinates with this set but I also used the Cupcake builder.  Why?  Well the tree builder punch has the big apple with a short stem and the cupcake punch has the cherry with the longer stem.  Well I wanted a big cherry for my ice cream cone.  To accomplish that I punched a little cherry – either use Chocolate Chip card stock or color the stem with the Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then punch the apple from Real Red and cut off the little stem – glue it on top of the cherry giving it a long stem and making it a larger cherry.  I know it’s a silly little thing but that is what finished the card for me.

I’m at convention now so I don’t have my punches with me to take a few pictures and show you – so hopefully that explanation made sense.
