Celebrate Today

Hi y'all! Since tomorrow is America's birthday, I thought I'd share a birthday card that I made recently. I actually made four of these - easy to mass produce! That's what I like :-)I used up some scraps - the blue and green paper is left over from trips to the craft store, so I don't know the brand. But start with a 4" square of green paper. Then double up a circle and a scallop nestie when you cut your blue circle. (I kind of like that is a bit uncentered and it saved a step!) Then run your paper ring through with the swiss dots folder. Add some gingham ribbon and paper piece your cupcake. Viola! Easy! :-) I did make some "sprinkles" on the cake with a glitter pen, although you can't tell too much in the photo.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Cupcake Collection
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Copic marker
Paper: PTI White, Kraft, Lemon Tart; blue & green were scraps!
Accessories: ribbon from craft store, Sakura glitter pen
Other: Paper trimmer, Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, foam tape, circle and circle scallop Nestabilities, Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder
