Birthday Card for Fantabulous Cricut-Challenge Me Monday #43

Hi Everyone!! Welcome to KMC.  Today, I made a birthday card for the Fantabulous Cricut challenge, the "Challenge Me Monday #43".  The rule of this challenge is the project have to have "something sweet in the project" such as ice cream, candy, cake, etc. and it has to be cut with a Cricut machine.  Therefore, I decided to make a cupcake shape birthday day card.  It is cute and sweet. :)

BDC #9

KMC's Recipe:
- Size: 6" 
- Cricut Cartridge:  Sweet Treats 
- Card Stock:  Recollection (Black, Brown, Light Brown, Red, and Peach)
- Embossing:  Cuttlebug Folders 
- Ribbon: Celebrate It-3/8" Wide (Ivory) 
- Embellishment:  Clear Rhinestone (From Michael's $1 Bin)
- Glitter:  JoAnn Craft Essential-Fine Glitter (Pastel Party-Pink)

I stamped the sentiment ""You're so...Sweet"" on the ribbon instead of the card stock.  The result is pretty good.  I used pigment ink instead of dye ink, the image comes out better.  If you plan on doing the same thing (stamp sentiment on ribbon) with your project, try to do a test run first (stamp on two scrap ribbon first with both type of ink).   

Wish me luck (crossing fingers).  Also, please leave me a comment. 

"That's All Folks"!!  Ta Ta for Now.  "Stay Tune"!


  1. Great card. Thanks for playing along with us at FCCB this week.

  2. Thanks. My hubby told me that this card looks different between the actual card and the picture. The picture can't tell the pop up effect. He likes the actual card better. Guess I need to get into photography too. Hehehe.
