Have a Ball With This Cute Kids Birthday Card Idea


Good Morning! As promised I have the third birthday card to share with you that contains a Sweet Treat Cup. I made these for two little girls, but they'd be perfect for a little boy as well. This would be a perfect card to mass produce and have on hand for those last minute birthdays that seem to pop up.

I started with a piece of Textured So Saffron card stock that measured 6" x 3-1/2" when folded. I used my 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch to round the outside corners. Next I stamped the bubble gum image in Rose Red Classic ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock (5-1/2" x 2-1/4"). (HINT: This stamp is in the Something Sweet set that is designed to match the 1-3/4" Circle Punch perfectly.) I used my 1-3/4" Circle Punch to create the opening for the Sweet Treat Cup in the Whisper White piece. (HINT: My Stamp-A-Ma-Jig once again was crucial in the placement of the gum ball base and lid. It allowed me to stamp them exactly where they needed to be.) Before adhering it with SNAIL Adhesive I rounded the outside corners to match the So Saffron base. (TIP: The Sweet Treat Cup has adhesive on the bottom of it as well. Just remove the protective film and place where desired.)
A strip of retired Designer Series paper was punched along one side with the Scallop Edge Punch and butted against the Whisper White layer. To cover the seam I tied a piece of 1/4" Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon over it and secured it with a Mini Glue Dot. The gum balls at the base of the machine were stamped in Certainly Celery, Rose Red, and  So Saffron Classic Inks. I cut them out using Paper Snips. Can't say enough great things about this tool! It really allows you to make those intricate cuts effortlessly. These were popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sentiment, also in the Something Sweet set, was stamped in Basic Brown Classic ink. This is my new favorite go to ink. Love the Basic Brown!
