Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #396 – Birthday Card

There is a new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations Blog ( and Newton’s Nook Designs is a sponsor for this event. The theme is so cute so I decided to play along. Here is the inspiration photo:

For my card below, I am showcasing the brand new Newton Loves Cake stamp set with an older Newton’s Sick Day stamp set.

Here are some photos on how I layered the cats. I have used some craft foam and my Xyron adhesive to add an even dimension to my card. This will ensure that when you send your handmade cards to the mail, it wouldn’t get crushed in the process.

To adhere the intricate pieces on my card, I used my Xyron sticker maker. I honestly cannot live without this little machine.


Here is my card. It is a birthday card for my big sister, who loves cats. She also rescues sick stray cats and nurse them back to health. I’ve always called her the cat lady but in reality, she has the biggest heart for all animals.


I hope my card has given you some inspiration today to create something beautiful! Happy crafting!
