Non traditional Valentine Design

"Cupcake Valentine Card"  5"w x 7"h
I decided to combine two themes into one card. Created by hand's challenge this week was to use gold and GG Design's challenge was to make a non traditional Valentine card (no hearts or flowers anywhere!!).

I started out by coloring white cardstock with Pan Pastels, all over with red and some dark grey and blending. Then masked off a rectangle and used gold spray webbing. Removed the white cardstock mask and outlined the rectangle with a gold gel pen. Trimmed the white cardstock down a bit to fit within the gold outlined area. Used a brass stencil (Dreamweaver - 3 cupcakes) and Dreamweaver's white molding paste on the gold webbed white cardstock. When dry colored it with Tombow markers and added some Diamond Glaze on the cherry to make it shinny. Added the red brads and the words with a black micron pen "Tell me I'm your cupcake... and I'll tell you you're the icing on it." Mounted the red layer onto a beige toned card.
