Magical Wishes with the Creative Cafe' KOTM

Hi all!  Laura here today, with a card created using the December Creative Cafe' Kit from The Rubber Cafe'.  This kit is so fun, bright and cheerful....just perfect for birthday or inspiration cards like this one:



Love the bright and colorful Doodlebug papers and embellishments and the adorable stamps!

To make this card:
Base: 4&1/4" by 5&1/2" kraft cardstock
First layer: 4" by 5&1/4" pink wood grain paper
Second layer: 4" by 3" floral paper and 1" strip of aqua cardstock cut with Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Triple Scallop

The tag:
Start with a 2&3/4" by 3&1/2" piece of kraft cardstock, trim off top corners (I used a manilla tag I had as a guide, but you can just trim off a small corner). The cloud paper is trimmed 1/8" smaller (2&5/8" by 3&3/8") and a 3/4" by 2&5/8" strip of the pink wood grain paper is added to the bottom.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and embossed in black in the right corner of the tag.  Then the balloons were lined up with the bow on the "W" from the word wish (easy thanks to acrylic stamps!) and stamped in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink:





The balloons were stamped in Memento Ink three more times on three different pattern/color papers, and then fussy cut to add to the stamped image on the tag.  The pink and green balloons are foam taped, the yellow balloon is glued directly to the tag using The Rubber Cafe's Scrap Happy Glue:
 

The wand was stamped on yellow cardstock and cut out, then foam taped to the edge of the word "Wish".  A small piece of ribbon was stapled to the top, and then the tag was foam taped to the center of the card. One of the Doodlebug stickers, and a banner and pearls were added to complete the card.

Thanks for stoppin' by the Cafe' today....and sharing a little Creative Cafe' KOTM birthday magic!
