Birthday Blueprint TH & Lyric Lett Phrase Card

Created this Birthday card using Tim Holtz Birthday Blueprint stamp/die set & Cricut cartridge Font Lyrical Letters. Cut the phrase 'add another candle' to have 3 word pieces. Stamped the cupcake multiple times to die cut the layers. Repurposed an unused (try & say that a couple times) cupcake wrapper. There is a layer of core'dinations blue under the cupcake wrapper as well. Used a sketch that I turned 90 degrees to the left which you can see below. The 3 phrase words are the 3 pieces for the sketch. Added Glossy accents, jute string & stickles.

I used the Tim Holtz core'dinations cardstock Barn Siding which is white on one side & red on other. I used both. The red side is the card base and the white side is the  sentiment tag, cupcake base & 1st layer of the cupcake. Used TH sander & paper distresser.
