This bright and cheerful birthday card was simple to create. Nothing was cut using the Cricut. Lets start with the cake. I cut the cake out by hand. I cut 3 large rectangles, and trimmed the edges at an angle. I used a small corner punch for the corners of the cake to imitate a real Topsy-Turvy cake.
The polka dots on the cake were punched out using a Friskars border punch. The candles on top of the cake were also created using the Birthday Candle Friskars border punch. I used Stickles on the polka dots and candles, and then pop-dotted the cake on the card.
I used a large round corner punch for the card and the sentiment. The sentiment came from a Friskars stamp pack, and says "It's Your Birthday!".
On the inside of the card, I used a scrap of paper I had used to make the cake on the front that already had the border punches punched out of it. I rounded the edges, and used the Studio G stamp that says, "Have your cake and eat it too!" I used a strip of the colorful striped paper to "tie it all together".
Overall, I think it turned out to be a cute little card. I also want to share with each of you my cool new stamp my sister Angie won and decided to give to me because she already has one. I'm so lucky!! Every month, Sweet Papery has a stamp giveaway on their Facebook page. You should definitely check it out because they do some great work!
The stamp says "Made By Ash Dziak" and obtains the URL to my blog. Since it was a giveaway, I was unable to choose the design, but I'm very happy with the stamp and it's size.
