Birthday with a Cherry on Top!

I tried out the Happy Birthday key on the Cricut Artiste Cartridge for the first time yesterday.  I can't believe it took me so long, but you should see my list of "want to's!"  ;)

Heart 2 Heart has an April Challenge called Bake a Cake that I am entering with this card.  I hope so anyway...the linky is gone.  :(  Oh well, I am still excited about having made it!  EDITED:  I am linking this to the Heart 2 Heart Tuck it In challenge for the month instead since the other link closed early.  How awesome is it that I made an envelope!?  ;)

Anyway, here it is!

This is made with the brand new Dream Pop Paper packet that is available finally today!!!

You can get these 12 B&T Duo papers and 12 Emboss Resist Cardstock sheets for just $10 with a $35 order of regular priced products from my website!  Finish looking at my card and then go check it out!  :)

I used the Chantilly Cardmaking Kit My Acrylix to make these banners.  Cotton Candy, Sunset, and Creme Brulee Inks work well with these papers.  I very carefully trimmed the edge of the cupcake wrapper with Close to My Heart's self adhesive silver shimmer trim.  Mmmmhmmm.

I finally made an envelope liner, too!  I just cut the envelope out at 5 inches and the liner at 4.75.  Then I cut out the section that I needed for the envelope and adhered it to the inside.  I LOVE this paper as a liner!  I think it makes a yummy looking frosting too!  You can really see the glossy resist pattern on the two pictures below...

I used the retired Tiny Typewriter Alphabet to make the inside sentiment.  THAT was tricky.  

Happy, happy birthday, Betty!!!  HUGS with a cherry on top!  :)

    1. Thank you! I was so bummed that I couldn't submit it for the cake bake, but at least it made it in for this one. Excited for May challenges!
