Hi and thanks for stopping by today. I would also like to say thank you to my new followers!
This week at Cooking With Cricut, the challenge is all about Birthdays. Also a bonus challenge is to use one of the two lovely sketches provided by Melin. Needing a birthday card for today, I am using the card sketch.
The white card base is 6 1/2x5. The background paper is cut 6 1/4x 4 3/4. My papers are Martha Stewart playful pink double-sided pad that I have had for quite some time. Using Cricut Lacy Labels, I cut the labels at 4 1/2 inches and used the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls on the patterned paper. The white mat is embossed with the Happy Birthday folder. For the cake, I used Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge page 40. It is cut 3 inches. This week's sponsor for the challenge is Peachy Keen Stamps. I wanted to give my cake a cute little smile. I used one of the Snow Cuties 1 1/8 for the face. I won these stamps recently and I enjoy using them! I would love to have more of the stamps!
Lots on Martha Stewart ink and pop-dots for the cake.
For the inside of my card, I cut Happy Birthday also from Sweet Treats. It is on page 56 and is cut at 2 inches. I added two different strips of the paper for a little more contrast.
Hope you enjoy my card!
