Monday Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

I love Mondays! 
Mondays are the one day of the week that are mine.  I have the house to myself, I can do what I want (within reason), and I usually have plenty of time to get my craft on!  :)

Today I had a chance to check out everyone's blogs and get caught up on what everyone's been up to.

I was inspired by a few challenges to make a Birthday card.  It's pretty simple, but not something I would have thought of without the inspiration of:

My Craft Spot- Sew much Fun
Birthday Sundaes- Inspiration photo

Looky what I made!

I used Kraft card stock for the base of the card.
The second layer is from the DCWV Lemon Flower stack.
The third layer started out as a cream colored scrap of cardstock that I used Distress Ink on (Mustard Yellow and Haystack Straw).
The banner was cut freehand from some DCWV scraps.
The Sweet Treats cupcake was cut at 2.75".  I attached a K & Co. brad to the top and covered the "frosting" with Glossy Accents and sprinkled beads on top.
There is faux stitching (which I am not very good at!) around the banners, cupcake, and 3rd layer.
The sentiment is from a cheapy set that I've had forever!

Wow!  That's a lot of writing for a card that took me all of 20 minutes to make!

Hope you all had a great day!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Julie, I think your "quick card" turned out really well. Looks good enough to eat. Love how you did the Faux stitching...I hope when I try it, mine looks half as bad as yours doesn' Card looks great!
    Hope you had a great day off.
    Take care.
