Tasty Treats, Birthday Card, 2017 Sale a Bration

Okay, hot off my worktable!!!  I did not find this one on the internet.  But after I post this, you can find it there!! I didn't go surfing this time.  I actually sat down and gave the card some thought and color!  And this is what I ended up with.  

I used Basic Black cardstock for the base of this card and for the layers.  I used a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pool Party for the layer on top of the base of the card.  On top of that is a piece of "Tasty Treats" specialty paper that was cut 4" x 5-1/4" and cut in half the long way.  I taped it in place on top of the Pool Party piece.  Make sure to line up the left and bottom edges.

Next I cut a piece of the "Tasty Treats" specialty paper 1-1/2" x 3".  The black layer is cut 1-3/8" x 3-1/8".  The focal piece is Whisper White and cut 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" and the black layer behind it is cut 2-3/8" x 3-3/8".  

The truck was stamped and fussy cut out.  I colored it using Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight ink and a blender pen.  The windows on the truck were cut out.  I set it in place on the white panel and drew a light line with a pencil on the window edge so I could line up the cupcakes.  I stamped the cupcakes and colored them in with Flirty Flamingo ink and Sahara Sand markers. I stamped th wrods on and then I set the truck in place using Dimensionals.  The inside reads: "Happy Birthday, now where's the cake?"  Cute, huh?  LOL

This was a fun card to make and I think I need to stay away from Pinterest for a while and come up with my own stuff, like I use to do a couple of years ago.  I just started finding fun and cute things on the net and had to make them.  I'm sure I will still do that, because there are some things that I would just LOVE to make.  Especially some of the ones with less layers.  Though I LOVE layers and those of you who know me know I LOVE to make cards with lots of layers!!!  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
