A Birthday Card for the Exchange

There are 10 of us at work who participate in a monthly card exchange on the second Tuesday of each month. This is the third year we have done the exchange, and I always look forward to seeing what everyone has created. The theme for January's exchange is Birthday Cards. For my card I used my Silhouette to cut the cupcake, enlarging the image slightly for the white frosting layer. I coated the white cardstock with Modge Podge, and then sprinkled on the glitter. The pink base was slightly inked to add a bit of dimension. I was very happy with the final card. Check back later in the week to see what everyone else created!

Patterned paper: Die Cuts with a View

Cardstock: Stampin' Up
