T o create this card I had to go way way back in my closet to find this old favorite stamp set. My daughter and I had boatloads of fun working with it years ago. It is the only cupcake stamp I have! I thought long and hard how to use the stamp before I created this card design. I wanted the focus to be on the cupcake but with an interesting background that was not too distracting. And I know from the basic principles of graphic design, the human eye prefers fewer colors, generally no more than three. I had to break this rule to add the cherry stem, but it doesn't dominate. I finished off the card with a few embellishments.
The three basic colors I used to create this card are Purple Posy, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral.
