Here are my birthday cards:

For these A2 size cards measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2",  used a paper pack from Close to My Heart called Claire.  I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut out the cupcakes on the front of the card and then stamped the image from a coordinating stamp set that comes with the bundle.  You can find the image on page 69, D9, using the Accent 1 and Accent 2 keys.  The cupcake was cut at 2" and stamped in Outdoor Denim and Sunset inks.  These cupcakes were then popped up with 3D Foam tape for dimension.

The sentiment on the front is from a stamp set that comes with the Artiste bundle and stamped in Outdoor Denim ink.  The balloon and balloon string also came from a stamp that from the bundle and was stamped with Outdoor Denim and Sunset inks.
