Happy Birthday Cupcakes Card

A collage is a creation of a new picture by combining different elements and arranging them in a pleasing way. This card is created by layering different elements (paper napkin motifs and embossed papers) that are common in theme, yet each different in its own way.



Happy Birthday Cupcakes Card

For this project you will need:

- white card
- lime green, pink and white cardstock

Paper Napkin With Cupcakes
- paper napkin with cupcakes such as the one in the image below
- 3-D pads
- fusible web
- double sided adhesive
- embossing machine and embossing folders of choice
- die cut or sticker with “Happy Birthday” message (the message here was created with the Sizzix e-clips machine)

2. Cut four 4x5 cm rectangles and emboss these.
3. Cut two 4.5 x 5.5 cm rectangles in both pink and green and emboss these as well.
4. Adhere each of the white squares on one of the four colored squares.
