Mojo Monday 251 ~ Birthday Version

It's been a few weeks since I've played along with the Mojo Monday sketch. Man, does it feel good to be creating again! Do you think it would be wrong to play hookie from work to keep creating??

Anyway, today is a card I made for my son's 9th birthday (which is today!!). The paper is a retired CTMH set, You Rock. I love this set for creating boy cards...especially ones for my rockin' kiddo! I used my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the cupcake out. The coordinating stamp set was the perfect finishing touch for this sweet concoction.

I used a double layer of foam tape to adhere the cupcake and add depth to the card. For the flag I used my marker to curve the paper and give it a feeling of movement. Here are my measurements for this standard A2 card (I got a little crazy with the 16th's):
  • background paper: 5 7/16" x 4 1/8"
  • left hand panel: 4 1/16" x 2 5/16"
  • right side panels (2): 2 13/16" x 2"
Thanks for checking it out and I hope you enjoy! Now I'm off to get cookies for his summer camp friends to enjoy!

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, You Rock (retired)
Stamps: Cricut Art Philosophy Celebration, You & Me (retired)
Ink: Outdoor Denim, Olive, Goldrush Marker
Other: Toothpick, 3D Foam Tape, Cricut, Durables - Square
