Happy Birthday Cupcake

The crested chicken eating the cupcake in this stamp set cracks me up! This whole bundle is funny! I like the added color from the Tailored Tag punches in the background. This is a great card for using up scraps of paper. And that chicken! Ha!

Full list of supplies needed, listed below. A die cutting machine is needed for this card.

Background Matte: Basic White Cardstock 4″ h x 5 1/4″ w

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.

  4. Punch several colors from the Designer Series Paper scraps with the Tailored Tag Punch.
  5. Attach the punched pieces to the background in a pattern and trim off the excess.

  7. For the Vellum Layer, the designer of this card sewed the edges with a sewing machine. You could also use a Stitched Rectangle Die or use your the piercing tip of your Take a Pick Tool to punch a border along the edge. Or leave it plain. Either way, adhesive shows through vellum, so add adhesive strategically so it will be covered by the chick and add to the card.

  9. Stamp the Sentiment in Versamark Ink on scrap Basic Black Cardstock with White Embossing Powder and heat set. Trim the Sentiment.
