Happy Birthday girl-Monochromatic


Today I made a very special card for a very special little girl, my soon to be 4 year old niece.  Ok, so she will be 4 in September, but it is never too early to start a card.  She loves pink and cupcakes, so this retired paper is perfect for this card. Whenever you think of a card to make,make it now, especially if you know an event is coming up.  So this niece of mine is so cute, and smart.  she has a brother who just turned 5 in May, and she like to follow him where he goes.  Not only that, she likes to sing.  What three year old doesn't like to sing.  OK, back to the card.

So the ingredients for this card are very simple, and they call for:

  • pink cardstock
  • Pattern paper:  Note:  in order for this to work, you need pattern paper where the designs are big enough to cut around 
  • Pop dots
  • Sentiment sticker

This is a basic card, so assembling it is simple:  fold cardstock in half.  Adhere paper on card front.  cut out the extra cupcakes (you can get the extra cupcakes from your scraps).  Once you cut out the images, put a pop dot on the back and put it on top of the matching cupcake.
Finally, add the sticker.   You can add a cute little note on the inside for your cute little cupcake.

I hope you like this card, and do not forget to enter the July Challenge on Card a day Blog ( I will see you later.  Be blessed.

  1. What a cute, fast, easy card to do for a young one but still have a nice impact. The pop up images make the card really cool looking and not so flat. TFS
