Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! I am trying really hard to replenish my birthday card supply and was trying to come up with a card idea. I decided to use Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle die set and then came up with the idea to incorporate her Cupcake Pop-Up as well!!
For this card, I started with an A2 sized card base using smooth heavy weight white cardstock. Then, using Karen Burniston's Rectangles - Crossshatch dies in the largest size, I cut three rectangles from a green polka dot patterned paper. For the front and inside rectangle, I adhered the patterned paper with a small piece of double sided adhesive at the top of each rectangle. Then I die cut the window. I added a piece of acetate to create a window and then glued both rectangles down.
I die cut two scalloped borders using a kraft cardstock and added them to the front and inside of the card. I added some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo around the edges before adhering them.
I then die cut the pop-up mechanism from heavy weight white cardstock. I assembled the pieces and glued them into my card.
I die cut two pieces from the same kraft cardstock to cover the pop-up mechanism. I stamped the sentiment "make a wish and blow out the bonfire!" to the longer piece, using VersaMark Ink, Honey Bee Stamps Inside: Snarky Birthday Sentiments and black embossing powder.
Then I cut out all my cupcakes. I used the cupcakes dies from Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop-Up set. There is one large and one small cupcake in this set. I used three smaller cupcakes on the front of my card and the large one on the inside.Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn.
