Mojo Monday 252: Cupcake Builder Birthday Card

The last Monday of the month is always fun with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This is the week each month that we are challenged to create either a round or square card (or both!)…always fun to make a different sized card than the usual 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ rectangular one.

Our ink cartridges have been refilled (not a drop of ink left was left in any of them) and I can show you both the sketch with my measurements and the card I created. Here you go…




Today I dared to be a little risky and pull out my Whisper White Craft ink…I say risky since I used it for the sentiment after adhering everything to the card. And a little risky also since the “happy birthday” greeting that I choose is so small (the set is called Teeny Tiny Wishes so no surprise that it is petite) rather than a large bold image which I often prefer when using my craft ink. Because craft ink is wetter than the classic ink, you do have to be careful and make sure it dries toughly before touch it so that you do not put a nice smudge on your creation.

This card could certainly be given to either a male or a female recipient…sometimes it seems a little harder to find masculine card samples. If you ask me, this one definitely works.
