Birthday Card for My Favorite Uncle





My very favorite uncle's birthday is coming up this week, and I wanted to make him a VERY special birthday card....I didn't want to make it too fancy, but I wanted it to be special! The blues and browns really work well together in person. I like how the 'plain' front doesn't give away the very busy inside of the card.

I used LOTS of techniques, and my NEW cricut cartridge, Sweet Treats! My husband got blackmailed into buying for me (tee hee) so I thought I'd start making good use of it.

If you look closely at the cake and cakestand, I used the "new" Stampin' Up shimmer paints in Champagne Mist. When it dried on the blue and beige cardstock, it looked SO nice!!!

Products I used:
PK Glitz Indigo Embossing Powder
Sweet Treats DCWV cardstock
Hobby Lobby cardstock in lt. blue, dk. blue, beige, dk. brown, and white
2 Stampin' Up stamps, and 1 Hobby Lobby stamp
1 Stampin' Up punch, and the
Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punches
Stampin' Up marker to color the cherry
Scor-Pal to score the vertical lines
Versamark pad
Cocoa Bean Brilliance Ink pad
Sky Blue Brilliance Ink pad
Cricut Cart - Jasmine for the photo corners
Cricut Cart - Sweet Treats for the cake stand and cake
