Sidestep Birthday Card

Now don't laugh! This is the very first sidestep card I have ever done and I know it is not the best but for a first try I was pretty happy with it. For some reason it took me a long time as I was not even sure how to do the folding of it. And, then it involved a lot of measuring to be sure it went into an A2 size envelope when it was folded up.


The only stamped image used on it is the bunch of balloons from Stampendous. I colored them with my Copics.

I computer generated the Happy Birthday sentiment on white card stock. I then layered it on the Jelly Bean Green card stock from Gina K. Designs.

 I used pattern papers from Gina K. Designs for the cup cake liner. Then I made frosting by cutting a circle with a punch and cutting it in half with a decorative scissors.  I added sprinkles with the Copic markers to decorate the cupcake. The last thing for the cupcake decor was to add a candle cut from card stock and decorative paper. This cupcake was then layered to Gina K. Designs Bubble Gum Pink card stock and again layered onto the Jelly Bean Green before adding it to the card base.

The bottom of the card also has some of the orange striped pattern paper.

I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week. The challenge this week is to make a pop up card and I think this will qualify.

Thanks for looking and I so appreciate your comments too. Have a great weekend and a wonderful Valentine's Day too!

God bless,
Verna

You are definitely too hard on yourself. This card is adorable. I was a bit intimidated when I made my first side step card too, but it's lots of fun, don't you think?
