First Birthday card

Hey! Well, I don't know about you but I subscribed to the new Cricut magazine (the online version) and I LOVE it! So much so that I got to the birthday party page and this centerpiece just called out my name! LOL. My husband's cousin's daughter turned 1 yesterday and I needed to make her a card and thought this was the most adorable idea!

I added my own little twist, by using a "stamp" shaped background, different patterned paper, my Imagine (Better Together) for the cupcake and Don Juan for the number 1. I then glittered my number 1 using my Xyron and MS Onyx glitter. I faux stitched the edges and voila! My card was done. I made my own envelope as well using the MS score board *BEST THING EVER!!* and I stamped the cupcake using My Pink Stamper's Simply Sweet (?) stamp set. (I'm sorry, it was one of her first and I don't remember the name specifically.) I've never really gotten into stamping but it truly does add that little cute touch to it! I decided to make a little "seal" using my Imagine. I print and cut the present from Better Together at 1 1/2" and ran it through my Xyron.

Hope you guys liked this! I can go through little "funks" and not care to use my Imagine as much, but then I get into the groove again and all of a sudden I fall in love with it each time I use it...LOL.
