Shaped Birthday Card

This is a card I made for the Birthday Sundaes Weekly Challenge.  Here were the requirements for the challenge:
This week we would like to you create a shaped birthday card {no squares/rectangles allowed} and include birthday wording/sentiment on your card front.

The materials I used for this card:
Card stock in white, purple, blue, pink, gold and brown.
Embossing powder (clear) and Martha Stewart Embosser.
Glue and sticker pop-up sticker squares.
Ink in purple and Scrappy Moms Stamps in "Sweet Somethings"
Carts - Sweet Treats (ice cream cone) and Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More (tag).

I cut the base for the card (which is available on the cart) in both brown and white - the brown on the outside to give it stability and the white on the inside so I can write a message.

I cut the tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More and then inked the edges and stamped the sentiment.  I used the Pop up Square Stickers to attach it for some depth.

It is hard to tell in these photos, but I embossed the pink and purple layers of the ice cream cone (the blue is already a little shiny so I left it).  Can you believe that both pinks are cut from the same paper - the embossing really changes the look!



  1. Great job with your ice cream cone! That's the same cut I used for my card this week. I liked reading how you made the card, I wish I had thought to cut a layer for the inside since I used dark brown cardstock. I settled for punching a white oval to write on. Thank you for playing along with my Birthday Sundaes challenge!

  2. Thanks Kristie! I actually always cut out a white layer for the inside so that I know I have space to write on - I normally write a lot so when it comes time to use this card it will be pretty hard - there isn't too much space inside! Thanks for the opportunity - I love the Birthday Sundaes challenges!

  3. Oh so ADORABLE! Thank you for joining us at Scrappy Moms Stamp!
