Happy Birthday Cupcake

I love using the Sweet Treats cartridge! This card is made using the card feature and the layers of this cupcake only.  It's super simple, but I still think it's super cute too.
I sized the shadow to 5 1/2" high so it will fit into an A2 envelope. Then I sized all the layers to match (using my Gypsy), the height of all pieces (RSD off) was 4.99". I used all solid colored card stock, but added some embossing (D'Vine Swirls), glitter glue and ribbon for embellishments. 

I used my EK Success Photo Labels punch for the sentiment and a Scrappy Mom's "Happy Birthday" stamp.  I tied some 1/8" light pink ribbon using my Bow Easy and attached a pink button too. The heart on the cupcake is accented with pink Studio G glitter glue and attached with pop-dots.

Inside I added another Scrappy Mom's stamp and the larger Photo Label punch. Like the front, I double matted the sentiment before adding gel pen stitches.

Both of these wonderful birthday stamps are from Scrappy Mom's Simple Sentiments set.
