I definitely had to think about this cue card. I considered going with candles but birthday cards are just not my thing [not sure why but they aren't]. So, I was cooking supper on our gas range and thought, "hey there's a flame here." An idea was born!
Here is my take:
I couldn't find the exact sentiment I wanted in the size I wanted so I created my own the same way I did for this post. It might be hard to see from the front, but after I colour the range I trimmed out the inside of the oven and put a piece of acetate over the inside to simulate the oven glass. Then I stamped the inside of the oven again masking the single cupcake. I stamped and trimmed two cupcakes and mounted them on the inside of the oven. Then I mounted the coloured and trimmed oven front over top of cupcakes. Now it looks like I have two cupcakes inside an oven. Fun!
I will be honest, this was not my first try [or even my third] at this card. I really had trouble with a good clean and simple layout that I liked. I ended up going back to a tried-and-true layout and it all came together finally!
