Cheery Birthday cards

Earlier this summer I was browsing through the $1.00 section in Micheal's and ran across packages of some cupcake dimensional die cut stickers. There were four to a pack and  they were covered in glitter. I grabbed one pack. Now I wished I had picked up more. I just made four cards with them and they turned out so cute.

 This card was the third one I made and used just scraps of paper left over from the first two cards.  I embossed the pink cardstock with cupcakes then just arranged the rest of the paper shapes to where I liked adhered it all down and stamped the sentiment, "a day to celebrate".

Here is a close up of the sticker. Lovin' the luscious strawberry on top.

Here is the first card I made with one of the stickers. With the sentiment "your so sweet" it could also be a thank you card. I made the borders with a Martha Stewart scalloped border punch with a small heart in each scallop.

I wrapped a white grosgrain ribbon along the top of the scalloped borders and ran the dark pink cardstock through an embossing folder. To add a little more bling I added dark pink rhinestones to the sentiment.

This was probably the quickest one I made. I backed the sticker a little differently by using different colored cardstock. Instead of white and dark pink I used light pink then red cardstock. I just adhered the background pattern paper and wrapped light pink rick rack around that, added the backed sticker and stamped the sentiment "celebrate" and it was done.

Here is a close up. Aren't these just the most darling stickers?

And here is the last cupcake with a cherry on top! Oops I cut off the sentiment. It says "wishing you the best day ever!". I finished this card off with a piece of dark pink embossed cardstock and light pink rickrack.

Here is a close up. Maybe if you click on the pictures you will be able to see the glitter. These cards were so fun and fast to make. Pink and green is one of my favorite color combos especially for fun birthday cards.

What are some of your favorite color combinations you like to use for birthday cards?
