Postcard altered to become a top fold card

The challenge on Sunday Postcard this week was to create a Birthday postcard since they've been around for a year now.

Well we were yakking on one of my Yahoo groups about Ecoline inks and doing a demo type thing with them. I have all the colors - BIG GRIN - so thought I'd do a bit of playing with them. This one uses clear thermal embossing to create a resist. I'm using the stamps from Quietfire Design that came out I think in March of this year. The rubber plate had all kinds of French words, and these small and large cupcakes and these two sentiments and a few other things. Lots of fun. So I repeatedly rubber stamped the small cupcakes (they're 3 little cupcakes) onto 110# white cardstock with Perfect Medium, thermal embossed them with clear. Taped down my cardstock to a solid surface and sprayed the cardstock with lots of water and then dropped or brushed on my Ecoline inks (Carmine, Turquoise Blue, Deep Yellow). Let it dry completely then trimmed it down to size. Rubber stamped my cupcake, and 2 word sentiments using Versafine Black stamp pad. Then used a Dreamweaver Brass stencil (3 cupcakes) and the white paste over one of the images. When dry I colored it with Pebbles pearlescent chalks and a Tombow Marker for the cherry adding some Diamond Glaze to make it shiny.

Here is the whole sheet that I made (5.5"h x 8.5"w)
