CJ Too Birthday Bash Blog Hop...

Happy Birthday Tracy!!! 
 Today is the fabulous Tracy from Craft Junkie Too's birthday!
Please join us for CJToo's Birthday Bash Blog Hop! You can start HERE.
                                         
Hello my crafty friends! I had to go back and show a little love to my old Expression. I heard she was feelin' a little left out since the New E2 got here! :) Here's a quick post showing a birthday card I made for one of my friends.

I used the Birthday Bash cart to  cut out the sundae and all the layers (I cut out almost all of the layers 2 times). I {love} cutting extra layers and putting 3D dots in between for more dimension.

I also inked around the edges.
I HAD to use some Glossy Accents for the cherries!
Used my Xyron, put the pieces upside down, and then "sugared" them with glitter!
I used my tweezers to get all the sticky glue webs out of the holes and corners.
Then I "sugared" the top layer pieces with different colors of glitter.
Here are the pieces inked, "sugared" and ready for layering!
Here are the sundaes with the first layer. I also used my white Jelly Roll pen to outline the dish.
I scored the card base. This size card fits into a regular letter type envelope.
Then I used pop dots to layer the "sugared" pieces.
I did the same for the cherries.
I added 2 types of tulle, a button, twine, and a sentiment to each card.
Here is the Blog Hop List. I hope you hop along with us...


I hope you enjoyed this layered, sparkly, and fun birthday card! I Hope you have a fabulous birthday, Tracy! <3 Kristy
