Party Without a Cake

Hi there 🙂 I hope everyone is doing well, as the world slowly creeps back to some sort of normalcy. I’m sharing my first DT inspiration card for this month’s Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge. Our theme this time is Embossing (Heat or Dry or both). I used the fun It’s My Birthday image, and colored it with my Copics.

I always seem to neglect to use my embossing folders, so this is a great challenge to get me digging them out! I found one with a 3D star type of pattern, which tied in nicely with the stars in the image. Since I was digging things up, I figured I’d have a go with an old MS cupcake punch, too! I punched each cupcake out twice, once to use the blue cake holders, and once with some embossed white paper for the icing. I stamped, heat embossed and cut out the sentiment. A few die cut candles are tucked behind the sentiment, and a banner die cut balances things out. To finish things off, I glued down some teeny rhinestones for cupcake sprinkles, and some sparkle on the image and banner.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
