Happy Birthday, Cheryl

I created this card for my friend Cheryl's birthday, which is coming up soon. I don't think she follows my blog, otherwise it wouldn't be much of a surprise when she receives it.

I made the card base using cream CS, then adhered a block from the DCWV "The Glitter Sweet Stack" matstack. I love getting these matstack pads - they are the perfect size for using with cards and you can get really great glittered, flocked, velvet, etc. paper much cheaper than full-size scrapbook paper.

I stamped the cake image (by Stampin' Up) onto cream CS, then stamped the two bunnies from the stamp set "The Gift." I colored the images using watercolor pencils and a Tombow blender pen. I also used a glue pen and glitter, Stickles and a Stardust pen (Sakura) to add accents. I trimmed it and inked the edges with Chestnut Roan chalk ink, then added three pink rhinestones. I matted the image on pink CS and used pop dots to adhere it to another block of cream CS with a matstack block on it. I used pop dots to adhere all of them onto the front of the card. I also tied a pink ribbon around the card front.


  1. The bunnies look great with that cute cake. Cheryl is going to LOVE it!

  2. Very cute, I always like a good birthday card
