A Bold Happy Birthday Card for JUGS 487 and TGIFC211…..

Hello All!

Happy Day after Mother’s Day…the real continuation of being a Mother!

I hope you had a great Day…my kiddos called…it was good to hear from them!


Today’s Card is for a combination of 2 Challenges!

A Trend Challenge from

Just Us Girls #487  (JUGS487)

Here is the Challenge Prompt…

JUGS487-Bold Letters-or greeting

I used a Bold and Beautiful ‘Birthday’ Greeting!


The second Challenge is from

TGIFC #211    (TGIFC211)

Here is the Challenge!


No Layers! Back to Basics! Love it!


Here is my Card!


I used my Aqua Painter, filled with alcohol, not water,

and So Saffron Ink (from the lid) to watercolor the cake!

I prefer using alcohol…it dries much faster, it doesn’t warp the card,

and I don’t have to use ‘Watercolor Paper’! Cool, Huh?


Here is the inside of my Card!


I used the markers straight onto the inside cake!




Whisper White Thick- card base. 8.5″ x 5.5″ score @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score


Cake Soirée- cake on card front

Stylized Birthday- greeting

Picture Perfect Birthday- inside sentiment

Piece of Cake- inside cake and candles


Stazon Black- cake on front and inside

Calypso Coral- greeting and inside sentiment

So Saffron- to ‘watercolor’ cake base


for coloring on the flowers on both cakes:

Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, and Petal Pink


Aqua Painter- filled with regular, household, rubbing alcohol, for ‘watercoloring’ the cake, on card front. I picked up the ink from the Stamp Pad’s lid, after squeezing it!


Here is a peek at the Card once again!


No Layers! Simple! Love it!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Back to Basics to you ALL!

  1. I have those painters and have never used alcohol. Thanks for the awesome tip! Your card is awesome! The softness of the cake was such a great idea! Thanks for sharing your talents with us at Just Us Girls this week!
