Sketched Birthday Fancy Fold Swap

 Okay, so before I get started on this card...please picture this cupcake with cute little "sprinkles" from a tiny little punch in different colors on top of the cupcake...yeah, TOTALLY forgot to add them before I headed off to Convention...duh! This was one of my Fancy Folds swaps, it is the Wacky Squash Card that I did for a class back in May and had so much fun, that I did one with all new product!
 I started with a Smokey Slate card base and added a layer of Co'ordenations cardstock, Crisp Cantaloupe to be exact, and ran it through the Big Shot using the Chevron Embossing Folder and sanding it slightly.  I added some Birthday Basics DSP (Did you know that through this month you can buy 3 packs get one FREE!-Contact me if you need to order some!) layered over a strip of Raspberry Ripple cardstock and tied a 1/8" Bermuda Bay ribbon around it.  I cut a label from the Deco Labels die in Smokey Slate and punched a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle from Silver Glimmer Paper and layered a 1 3/4" Summer Starfruit circle onto that.  I then stamped the cupcake image from the stamp set Sketched Birthday in Basic Gray ink onto Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock and punched it out using the 1 1/4" circle punch and adhered it with a Dimensional and finished off this "tag" with a bow. (LOVE THIS RIBBON!)
 Then I stamped the sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday stamp set in Basic Gray onto Very Vanilla cardstock and snipped the edges.
This is the wacky part....I folded up cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card.   I love making these cards! And believe it or not, it's easy peasy!
