Cupcake Birthday Card Set

This is a little birthday card gift set that I put together this morning. I made 5 cards for it, all of them are 3 1/2"x3 1/2." I made two of them with the striped cardstock and three of them with the polka-dotted cardstock. All the patterned cardstock came from The Celebration Stack by DCWV. I wrapped each card with some ribbon, turquoise for the polka-dotted cards and orange for the striped cards. I used George and Basic Shapes to cut out the circles. The large circles are 3" and the small ones are 1 1/2." I then stamped my cupcake image onto the large circle and the sentiment onto the small circle. I adhered everything down, using pop-dots on the small circles. I added some orange and turquoise Stickles around the edges of the circles. I also used Stickles for the sprinkles on the cupcakes. I used turquoise, yellow, orange and thistle colors. I stamped the image on red paper and cut out the cherry to paper-piece it onto my image. I then added some glossy accents to the cherry. Simple, but fun! Enjoy!!

I made these for the following challenges:
