Sweet Birthday Wishes

Supplies: White Cardstock
Light pink cardstock
Patterned paper (I used paper from the Basic Grey "Phoebe" line)
Brown Cardstock
Solid colored paper (I used blue paper from the Basic Grey "Phoebe" line)
pink ribbon
White flocking
Fruit Punch Stickles
Pink Petunia Versamark Ink
Black Palette Ink
Essential Glue Pad Refil bottle
Tidy tray
Sweet Things Stamp Set (Promotional TAC set - also could use Little Cupcake)
Giga 3" Scalloped Square punch
Giga 2 1/8" Square Punch
Pop-It's Pop Dots

1) Cut your card base out of white cardstock. Standard size card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".
2) Cut your card front back ground shape out of pink cardstock. I used my Cricut - Accent
Essentials Cartridge set on 3 3/4". Layer on top of your white card base.
3) Cut a 3 3/8" x 2 6/8" rectangle from your patterned paper. Layer on top of your pink back
ground shape. Place to the center left.
4) Use the Giga Scalloped Square Punch to punch out a brown cardstock square.
5) Use the Giga Square punch to punch out a white square of cardstock. Using the Pink petunia
Versamark pad and a sponge, sponge around the edges of the white cardstock square.
Adhere square to brown scalloped square. Adhere both squares to the center right of the
pink cardstock and half on top of the patterned paper (see photo).
6) Adhere ribbon across front of card, laying it over the bottom third of the scalloped square.
7) Stamp cupcake twice, using black Palette ink - once on a scrap of white cardstock, and once
on a scrap of the solid colored paper. Cut the cupcake liner out of the solid colored paper and
place it on the image stamped on the white paper. This is called "paper piecing". Then cut
the entire cupcake image out.
8) Using the Essentials Glue pad refill bottle (or your choice of clear craft glue) cover the
frosting part of the image. Then pour the white flocking over the image and gently pat it
down. Shake off excess flocking.
9) Embellish with stickles and place over the ribbon on the scalloped square, using a pop dot.
10) I used my Cricut to cut out the word "sweet" and adhered it to the top of the card. Add an
additional sentiment to the bottom right (like "birthday wishes").
