Patterned Paper Birthday Card with Sizzix Balloons and Cupcake

Patterned paper can create the sentiment for your card and allow you to create a card quickly.  Utilizing die cut images that match the paper used add interest.  This card was made with paper from Paper Studio’s Eat Cake Paper Pack.

A rectangle of patterned paper was cut using Simon Says Stitched Rectangles.  The cupcake is from the Sizzix Balloons and Cupcake Stamp and Die set adn was cut from glitter cardstock matching the patterned paper and glued together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte, which is strong enough to adhere to the rough surface of glitter cardstock.  Once the cupcake was assembled 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the die cut and then adhered to the patterned paper.  To accent the green in the cupcake a rectangle of green glitter cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger than the patterned paper rectangle and both were adhered together with Sookwang Scor-Tape.

A top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The focal image rectangle was adhered to the front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.  Simple, quick, and very easy.
