I had some leftover background paper that was created using Kodak Glossy Photo Paper, Distress Oxide Inks, and Ranger Distress Micro Glaze that I had used for leaves in a previous card. I couldn’t let it go to waste, so I die cut the remainder into a circle and added the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Cake die to the front. In the end I added three layers of the word circle and the cupcake for a little added dimension.
I wanted to add a little more visual interest so I die cut two more circles from coordinating green cardstock I had on hand, each a little larger than the previous circle. I added Darice Sticky Back Foam behind each for added dimension and adhered it to a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock, which was die cut using the largest My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle Die. An A2 top folding cardbase made from some of the green cardstock and the focal image rectangle was adhered to the front. There was a lot of white space at the bottom of the card and so I cut thin strips from the remaining background and adhered them underneath the focal image circle.
A quick and easy card made from scraps on hand.
