To you from me.... with love

Happy Wednesday to you! We are officially on the downhill slide of the week. Kiddos, vacation is almost half over, make the most of it!!! Get outside and PLAY!!! Teachers, rest up and have fun!

Today I want to share another birthday card with you! This one is definitely geared towards girls! (The pink is a dead give-away!) :)

I make almost all my cards using a white card stock base. (I really like the white card stock that you can get at Walmart.) So on this card, I mounted pink paper to the white and then added an additional mat of baby blue. I also topped the blue paper with another layer of white but I ran it through the Big Shot using the swiss dots embossing folder to add some texture.
I stamped and punched the cupcake out with the Create a Cupcake set, from the Stampin' Up occasions mini catalog. I also punched a blue scallop circle (the large one), to set the cupcake on. I popped up the cupcake design with dimensionals and added a cherry to the top! I should have added some glitter to the cherry to give it some bling! I placed the scallop circle and the cupcake on a small piece of pink card stock and tied a ribbon around the opposite end. Adhering this piece to the right hand side of the inner mat, after I placed a pink brad above the birthday greeting, finished off the card.

All you would need to do is change up the colors and this card could be for a boy, or even an adult! I hope this inspires you to grab your stuff and get making some cards for all the birthdays you have coming up this year!

Stop by tomorrow for yet another card! Thanks for popping in!
