Stamping Bella Uptown Girl - Cupcake Party

👉 The best way to grow old gracefully is to enjoy it. 

Stamping Bella Uptown Girls are some of my favorite images when I want to create a cute girlie card for a special friend. They are quick to color with my Copics and the images are so sassy and stylish. For this birthday card I chose a  label card base in Cricut Design Space and sized it to 5 1/2 square to fit my image. As always, I had a blast creating frames, borders and flower accents for embellishments and I even printed the perfect sentiment on my Cricut!     

Of course, what would a birthday card be without a pop up inside? I found a darling Anna Griffin  one that I recently purchased in Cricut Design Space but I ended up making quite a few modifications because the cuts were just too intricate to cut nicely. It was much easier, and almost as cute, to emboss the gifts with some pretty embossing folders. (They look great in person.)  I even found the top for my front package in a Stephanie Barnard set I had stashed away.  I used some Elizabeth Crafts peel off stickers to embellish some of my presents and my borders.  The Happy Birthday was cut from shiny gold card stock...my new favorite for sentiment dies. I chose to put the sentiment above the gifts so I would have lots of room to write a note to my cherished recipient.
