Hope your Birthday is so good you can taste it!

Hey everyone, this is Kimberly and I am so happy to be here to share this card with you! (Thanks Sheila!) Be sure to stop by my My Craft Spot, for more fun projects and vidoes and a new challenge with prizes every Monday!

This was such a fun card to make! 

All of the cuts come from the Wrap it Up cartridge - one of my favorites!

I love the cupcake card on the wrap it up cartridge, but I wanted a different candle, so I welded a new candle over the original. The shape card and layers were cut at 5" (height) and the candle I added over the top was cut at 3.35" (height)

I also wanted to add a yellow patterned 'cupcake wrapper' to the front of the card.  I scooted the cut off to the side so as not to waste paper and put my patterned paper upside down on the mat.  Then I trimmed the edge with my paper cutter.  (This is the yellow piece on the front of the cupcake)

I also wanted chocolate brown on the inside of my cupcake card so I cut it once from white cardstock (right side of gypsy mat) and once from brown (left side of gypsy mat) Then I trimmed the brown on the fold line.

So, here is my cupcake card base.  I cut off the candle. :)

Here is the brown for the inside of my card.  I stamped the Happy Birthday with embossing ink and then heat embossed the white embossing powder on top.  I LOVE that you can curve clear stamps on the acrylic block before you stamp! Click HERE to see all of my new clear stamp sets!

I added a little faux stitching with my white gel pen and adhered it to the inside of my card.

For the pink frosting, I first adhered the red candle and then added glossy accents (smeared with my finger) and then sprinkled Martha Stewart tinsel glitter on top.

I inked the blue patterned paper candle with Bazzinks Splash ink.

For the yellow cupcake wrapper, I first stamped the sentiment and then inked the edges with Ochre Chalk ink and doodled with a white gel pen.

The stamped sentiment comes from Inside & Out Stamp Set #2.  This set has sentiments for the outside of your card  . . .

. . . and a matching sentiment for the inside!

Time to build our cupcake!  First add the frosting and candle base.

Next, I added the blue patterned paper candle.

Then the flame and the cupcake wrapper.

This would make a cute card all by itself, but I wanted to add a little more.

So,  I added pop it squares

and adhered it to a standard A2 size card.

Now for the tag!  The 'Eat Cake!' sentiment comes from my Inside & Out Stamp Set #2.   I stamped it on pink card stock, cut it out by hand, and matted it twice.  Then I used Cherry Red Bakers Twine to attach it to the candle.
