Make A Wish

Hello TRC Fans! It's Amber here with my first post as a Rubber Cafe designer. Today I have a fun Birthday card to share with you using the March Creative Cafe Kit - Special Celebrations. For this card I used this months add on stamp set called Little Cupcake, a piece of patterned paper from the On Trend 6x6 paper pad, the pearled teal cardstock, and the tan seam binding ribbon.

Step 1. I started by folding an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of  teal cardstock in half to create the card base. Once folded your card base will measure 5 1/2" by 4 1/4".

Step 2.  Cut a 4 1/2" x 2" piece of patterned paper from the On Trend 6x6 paper pad. I used the patterned paper with the colorful triangles. 

Step 3. Cut and add a 4 1/2" piece of tan seam binding ribbon to the upper half of the patterned paper, stapling the ends with a stapler. Take another piece of tan seam binding ribbon and tie it into a bow, set aside.

Step 4. Adhere the patterned paper panel with the stapled seam binding ribbon to the bottom half of your teal card base. 

Step 5. Stamp the "Make A Wish" sentiment towards the right side of your card above the adhered patterned paper panel. Stamp the #Itsyourbirthday sentiment toward the bottom right side of your patterned paper. 

Step 6.  Add the tan seam binding ribbon you tied into a bow with some double sided adhesive right below and the stamped "Make A Wish" sentiment, over the stapled piece of ribbon. 

Step 7. Stamp the flowered cupcake from the Little Cupcake stamp set onto some white cardstock, fussy cut, and color. 

Step 8. After my cupcake was colored and fussy cut I took the Clear Glaze Gelly Roll Pen from Sakura that is included in this months kit and added glaze to the entire top part of the cupcake. The glaze added a smooth shiny coating to my cupcake top. You can see a close up below. 

Step 9. Adhere the decorated cupcake to your card front with some 3-D foam tape or pop dots and your finished. 

I'm so happy with the way this card turned out and it was so fun to create. All the supplies I used today except the ink pad, markers, and stapler can be found in this months Special Celebrations Creative Cafe KOTM. Thanks for stopping by today!
