#itsyourbirthday

Hello, H E L L O again!!!  Candi here, sharing my newest creation using the March Creative Cafe Kit :) seriously...I L O V E cupcakes and I really got lucky to be guesting this month!  I can't say enough about how wonderful this kit is...it's super!!!!!!!!!

Enough chit chat...you wanna see my creation, right?!  Here it is...


Now let's chat about how I created this card!  This card is 4 x 5.5 inches...once again I just folded the cardstock and just trimmed it...just "eyeballing" it!  I grabbed the navy with gold 6 x 6 sheet from that awesome Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye and trimmed that down to fit on the front of the card, leaving an edge of the navy card showing!  Next I grabbed the navy ribbon and adhered the start of the ribbon to the inside of the card and then I began to wrap it around the card front several times until I liked the way it looked.  I then cut the ribbon off and adhered the end down to the inside cover!

Next I took the light blue cardstock and cut down about 3 strips and stamped out #itsyourbirthday from the Little Cupcake Stamp Set, several times...


I then attached each strip with my mini stapler...easy peasy!  I took that cute cupcake that is topped with a strawberry and stamped it out twice...once on the light pink cardstock and once on the hot pink cardstock!  I took the hot pink cupcake and just trimmed out the strawberry...then I trimmed out the whole cupcake that was stamped on the light pink cardstock.  I used foam tape to place the strawberry onto my cupcake...love how it pops off of the card!


For the final touch I grabbed my clear and green Stickles to add a little shimmer to that cupcake!  Once it dried I just tucked in my cupcake behind the #itsyourbirthday strip!  Good to go for a simple yet elegant Birthday Card!!!

I hope you enjoyed this sweet little creation!
