Baby Animal Cupcakes Birthday

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

The new release of Birthday dies have been restocked in the online store. So if you didn't get the ones you wanted previously, all 25 designs are in stock. This release is filled with cute little whimsical animals, birthday cakes, cupcakes and birthday phrases. Everything you need to create some outstanding birthday cards.

Today, I am featuring the Baby Animal Cupcakes die and created a birthday card for a little girl. So let's get started with some details on my card.

Step 1: I had this sketch pinned on Pinterest and thought the circle layout would work well to display my 3 cupcake images. I would be able to use ribbon and add a sentiment.

I chose this pretty pink designer paper for the card background. Little girls and pink -how can you go wrong. I paired that with matching pink (blushing bride) cardstock and my card base is a bright bold pink (melon mambo).

melon mambo card base: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
blushing bride layering panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
designer paper panel: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
stitched circles: 5th largest die ( 2 1/4")
I cut the baby animal cupcakes in shades of cardstock just following the colors of the packaging. I used melon mambo, pretty in pink, powder pink, granny apple green, gorgeous grape and ivory.
Next, I cut the Make A Wish sentiment and the candle. I decided not to use the balloon because it seemed a bit to busy with that element.
Step 2: Now that all the card elements are cut, I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the designer paper to the pink layering with double sided tape. I placed my circles with the same adhesive and then added my ribbon.
Added my cupcake images to the circles also using double sided tape.
 The sentiment was added with Ranger multi medium matte. I like this adhesive because it dries clear.
To complete my card, I attached the image panel to a melon mambo card base. I thought the right lower side of the card needed something small added just to balance the card. I used 2 metallic enamel dots in granny apple green. I added a 3rd one where the 2 lower circles intersected for the flower element of the sketch.
Well, that's it for me for this week. See you next Saturday!
