Cute Calories Don't Count

    I recieved a birthday card with this saying earlier in the month.  Right away I knew I wanted to make a birthday card using it.  I generated it with my computer before using the Christmas Label Die from PTI. This has become one of my favorite label dies since receiving it last month.
     Since I had to have some "cutesy" sweets, I knew exactly which stamp set I was going to use: Hero Arts Cupcakes.  This is one of my favorite non PTI stamp sets.  It is one I usually reach for when making birthday cards.  I love all the cute cupcakes in this set.

     In addition to being cute, I wanted the cupcakes to be colorful. I used my copics to color.  Then I dabbled each cupcake with glue using my Zig Glue Pen before adding glitter. I used one of the decorative stamps from the Half & Half set to serve as a cupcake holder.


     The inside sentiment was complied from 3 of the sentiments included in this set. The little purple cupcake is from stampendous. Being an inch it is easy to cut out and put inside of birthday cards.

  This card came out exactly as I had imagined it would.  It is one of my favorites. I'll be sending it off to my sister-in-law who has a birthday at the end of this month.  Thanks for stopping by.

Love this card. You did so many clever things. I have this Hero Arts cupcake set, too. It was one of my first purchases when I started stamping last year, and I love it, too. Great job of coloring, and how brilliant to use those Half & Half stamps as cupcake holders.
