Happy Birthday!

Hi, TRC Fans!!!  It's Candi here today and I am SO excited to be the March 2016 Creative Cafe KOTM Guest Designer!!!  I was super thrilled when I found out that there were cupcake stamps in this months kit :) those tasty little treats are my fave!

These kits are so amazing...everything you need to create SEVERAL cards, in one box, delivered to your door step each month!  Here is a peek at this months kit...

Trying to come up with a card for a male is tough, in my opinion!  I thought the kraft cardstock would be perfect for that!  I took the 8 1/2 x 11 piece of kraft cardstock, folded it in half, scored it with my bone folder and then grabbed my paper trimmer.  I trimmed the card down to 4 1/4 x 4 1/4...I love the tiny little size...

First thing I did was stamp out Happy Birthday several times using a brown ink pad.  I tore off a tiny bit along the front side of the card to give it rough edge.  On the edge, I rubbed my brown ink pad to make it pop a bit.  For the inside of the card I trimmed down a little strip from the 6 x 6 Paper Pad and adhered that down...I like the color peeking out a bit!

Back to the front of the card, I stamped out the little stars randomly along the edge in black ink.  For that cute cupcake, I stamped it out in black ink onto my extra kraft cardstock.  I trimmed it out closely to the edge and the added a few colors of Stickles to the frosting to give it a fun look!  Once again I stamped out the cupcake on a piece from the 6 x 6 Paper Pad and just trimmed out the wrapper part of the cupcake and adhered that to my main cupcake image!  I grabbed the twine and wrapped it around my fingers a few times and then stapled that to the front of my card.  Once my cupcake dried I added some foam tape to the back and put that down on top of the twine!  For the final touch I added some of the navy ribbon...

I love how this cupcake just P O P S off of this card!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!  I will be around again in the upcoming weeks with more inspiration from this months KOTM :)
