Hello there!! Today is my turn to post over on the My Scrap Chick blog and I have a fun birthday card to share with you. My daughter's friend recently had a birthday and she celebrated with a Quincenara. My daughter was one of her "attendants". I wanted to make a fun and special card for her friend and this is what I came up with -
I used the "Cuppy Cake Treatkins" file and created a shaped card. I enlarged my card quite a bit. It is about 5.5 inches in height. Since our present was the card and some money I wanted the card to be larger ;)
To create my card base I made an offset of my cupcake's base layer and then cut it out two times. The back layer of the card I scored about one inch or so down from the top. I only adhered the top section of the back layer to the front to create the card base (you can see this up in my photograph).
I needed an envelope for my card to fit in so I chose the "Chunkie Square Envie 6.0" and used some coordinating cardstock to make it with. I think this turned out to be such a cute birthday card and it really went together quite quickly. The slowest part was picking out my papers, lol!!
