5th Birthday Card

My friend asked me if I would make a card for her daughter Evie who is going to be 5 next month. As Evie is having a chocolate party Denise wanted a chocolate themed birthday card for her and couldn't find one in the shops. So I took on the challenge! :-)

I used my Cricut to make the over sized chocolate muffin for Tilda to sit on. I ran the bottom layer of the muffin through a paper ribbler to make the muffin case have some texture to it then layered the top of the muffin over that on foam pads for a 3d effect. The chocolate sweets were also done on the Cricut. I added a flower to the centre of one and for the other I stamped out a Happy Birthday circle stamp then used my Nestabilities circle die to cut round it. I did a scalloped circle layer for it to sit on and then attached it all to the sweet adding a number 5 to the centre.

The swirls are a Sizzix die which I added pearls and flowers to. The letters for "Evie" are by K&Co and the papers are from a scrap booking kit but I can't remember who made them.
For the inside I used the same Tilda but cut her down to just the circle of her head and shoulders. I used the same papers from the scrapbooking kit and added another Cricut sweet to finish it off.

Ellie told me she thinks Evie's card is lovely so I'm pretty sure Evie will too. :-)
