Cupcake Card & Bag

Hi everyone! I actually made this card and matching bag last night, but I was tired of my pictures looking terrible, so I waited until this morning to post! I got this idea when I was upstairs watching tv and I had to come down and make it!

The cupcakes were cut with my Cricut from a free SVG file I found on the internet. I just scaled them but to the size I needed. The paper is the retired Island Oasis paper from Stampin' Up. I love the multicolored stripes and polka dots it has... perfect for a birthday card! The ribbon is So Saffron from a few Sale-a-Brations ago.

I found some of these plain white bags in my stash... I found them 2 for $1 last Christmas. I love decorating them to make a custom gift bag and I think this might be one of my best yet!

The card has a Happy Birthday sentiment inside of it.

I used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday for this week for both the card and the bag. I haven't used a lot of layers in a while, so it was fun to get back to my "roots". HAHA!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
