It's my brother-in-law's birthday on Sunday so I needed to come up with a masculine card. Is this too femme? I love that Summer Picnic Designer Paper so I just based the card off of that as the background. To get the 2 shades of orange on the icing of the cupcake I inked up the cupcake topper & stamped it first on a piece of scratch paper, then I stamped it onto my card stock (this made it slightly lighter). Second, I stamped the dots in the same color ink & then stamped it directly over the cupcake topper so that those would be darker. I like how it turned out, hopefully he will too. Happy Birthday, Clay!
