Quick no fuss Birthday card

Hello lovelies...I hope you are all ok and getting ready for the man in the red suit ? 
I won't lie i am the least prepeared I have ever been ! 

Which leads me on to todays card...Now I have a couple of birthdays around the holiday season and also just after, so today I have made a quick no fuss (and also no colouring for the non colouring crafter's) birthday card. What is even better is that it has been made using this months free Club Inspire Download from Crafter's Companion. 
All you need to do is click here to either join, or sign in and the downloads are on the Club Inspire main page. 

The download comes with several papers and a sheet of sentiments and embellishments. 
I used the cupcake and the Happy Day sentiment. 
The kraft card I have used the Hessian embossing folder from Crafter's Companion Inspiration 6 magazine. 
I trimmed it down to fit onto a 4x5 card. 
The papers I trimmed down to 1" wide to just under 5" to fit the Kraft card and overlapped them. 

The cupcake I have used Spectrum Noir Clear sparkle pen and then added some sequins. 
I then mounted the cupcake and sentiment using 3d foam to give some dimension. 
To finish i rounded off the bottom corners and adheared to the card base. 
So there you go a nice simple and fun birthday card for any age. 

I know a lot of my blogger friends won't be around now, so i will take this chance to say have a very Merry Christmas, and thank you for all your contiued support. 

Happy Crafting and Happy Holidays
