Celebrate With a Cupcake!

One of the best things about this new Creative Cafe' KOTM is the awesome sentiment stamps!  Don't be afraid to use your sentiment stamps for more than just inside your card or a simple one time stamp, you can use them to create a great background too:

Base:  Start with an A2 sized kraft cardstock base (5&1/2" by 4&1/4")

First Layer:  Cut a 2" wide by 5&1/2" long strip of peach stripe patterned paper.  Stamp sentiment down entire strip, start by lining up the word "celebrate" on the top peach stripe and go from there.  When you are done glue this strip to the card base using Scrap Happy Glue.

Center Panel:  Start with a 2&1/2" by 3&1/4" piece of peach/gold dot paper and mat on a 2&3/4" by 3&1/2" piece of mint green pearl cardstock.

Fussy cut 4 flowers from patterned paper, one is just an extra center of the peach circle flower.  Glue center to the peach flower, and then glue all to center panel, add pearls to centers:

Stamp and color the cupcake.  Use the glaze pen from the kit to add accents to the word cupcake, the candle flame, and the dots on the birthday candle.  Fussy cut out and then use foam tape to attach to the center panel.  Foam tape the panel to the card at an angle, and add a couple of banners to the upper right corner.

Time to break out those KOTM stamps and create a card worth celebrating!  Stay tuned for more inspiration coming soon!
