This idea is from someone's blog - not sure who - but thanku - I will include a link if they let me know! Have made quite a few changes to the original idea. Just bought a Cuttlebug, so I'm in heaven!
Using Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder, emboss pink cs and fold in half. Round corners with corner punch. Use scallop punch to punch light green cs - use paper piercer to punch holes. Using Pink inkpad, ink up only the outside circle part of the stamp 'Birthday Wishes', then stamp the 5 in centre but with top of candle inked with yellow inkpad. Emboss with Sparkle embossing powder. Colour 5 with watered down paint. Add Dimensional Magic to 5 - put aside to dry!!! Glue to green circle, attach to pink cs with foam pads. Use scallop punch to punch out top rh corner of pink cs so it looks like a bite has been taken out of 'icecream'. For Card Inside: cut piece of white cs slightly smaller than pink cs and round corners with punch. Use scallop punch to punch out top rh corner but make bite smaller than you did for the pink cs. Stamp sentiment and emboss. Glue cut-down icecream stick to inside of card - glue rhs only of white cs over the stick. Glue ribbon to stick. Scan doesn't show up, but Ribbon is very sparkly in real life as is the stamped image on front. TFL
