Happy Birthday Paper Sweeties! and Heart2Heart

 
This month Paper Sweeties is celebrating their 3rd Birthday!  Appropriately, the inspiration for the challenge is birthday related.  Over at the Heart2Heart Challenge Blog the theme is Birthday Bash for this week. 
 
 
  
I've had this one floating around in my head for quite some time now.  I wasn't quite sure how I was going to have Emma peeking out from behind the cupcake without the back of the card looking like a mess.  I won't bother showing it, but I ended up just making an extra cut of the card base in pink and used the back half to cover up the back of the cupcake and candle and stamped an image of Emma with her dress and hat on (just stamped them all on top of each other in a light color and cut the outside of the piece as a whole).  This one took quite a bit of paper piecing, but I am happy with the way it turned out.  The cupcake is from the CTMH Artbooking cartridge.  It was not in the form of a card, so I duplicated the base image, mirror imaged one and welded the two together to form a card.  The cute little birthday hat is from one of my old favorite sets What A Hoot (remember my slight owl card obsession last Fall). 
 
Sneak Peek Alert!:  Check out the Gold Foil Tape and the white bow with gold embossing on it... coming soon in the new CTMH Idea Book that goes live September 1st.   But before you get too excited about that, don't forget to get your Brushed paper pack while you can-that one is going away and is only available while supplies last!
 
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out all of the great artwork at both challenges!  Get inspired and even play along!  I'm sure we all have a birthday coming up that we need to make a card for.

  1. Lisa this is so cute. A lot of work when you add to original cut. I know I had a couple cards I had to piece for a finished look. Very true consuming and you have to be satisfied with it. I would include the back as well.
