Build a Birthday with a Cherry on Top!

You know how sometimes you create something and it just makes you happy!  Well this is one of those cards and it’s super fun to make.  It’s a happy card using the Build a Birthday stamp set with a little bit of Cherry on Top Washi Tape.

build-a-birthday-COT3There are two new In-Colors in the Cherry on Top collection – Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder – basically they look like the outside and the inside of a watermelon.  Add to those some Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay and you have a bright happy card. And when you use the Build a Birthday stamp set it’s a perfect Birthday celebration.  Did you know that those “cake layer” pieces in the set can also be candles?  Pretty clever don’t you think.

What makes this card so fun to create are the colored circles that are floating around the candle.  I used Sponge Daubers for the large circles and anyone care to guess what I used to make the small ones?  It’s something you probably have right in your house – possibly even hundreds of them – it’s a cotton swab.  Grab one cotton swab and one sponge dauber for each color and with a little dab in the ink and a twist on your card you get these fun circles!

Another fun aspect of this card is that it actually has a short front and the bottom of the inside peeks out – that is where the washi tape is.  I used the dot pattern – it matches the dots I made on the card! Put there are 4 other patterns in the Cherry on Top Washi Tape collection.  There is also a 6×6 Paper stack and you could use strips of that in place of the Washi Tape giving you tons of possibilities.

So fun and a quick card to make.  My Stamper’s Club and card clubs had fun making this card this month. Here is the full list of supplies for you:
