Sweet Birthday Wishes

Someone asked me last week to make a bunch of children's birthday cards because she has so many grandchildren!  For this post I'll share the outside of two "girl" cards that were inspired by the challenge at Bitten By the Bug2 this week, "Sweet." Images and word for the first card were cut using Cricut Artistry. The cone and sprinkles were stamped using CTMH Sugar Rush Scrapbooking stamp set. I printed the rest of the sentiment using Word.



This second card's cupcake is from Cricut Doodlecharms. I embossed the white background with Cuttlebug's "Happy Birthday" folder. The "chocolate icing" was also embossed and I lightly rubbed a small chocolate pigment ink pad over the raised portion. I added some Sugar Rush glitter gems. I used a bone folder to emboss lines every 1/4" on the cupcake base.


I'm sharing the first card with the following challenges:

Bitten By the Bug 2 - the word SWEET
Make My Monday Challenge #44 - Embossing, heat or dry
Ooh La La Creations #226 - Birthday
Pile It On #129 - interactive and/or Birthday
Send a Smile 4 Kids - punches and/or die cuts
