Cottage Cutz Valentine Card Winter Cat Bird Cupcake

Happy Sunday crafty friends!
Today is my turn to share a project over on the Cottage Cutz blog. Here is a look at my project.
The finished card is approximately 5.5 x 5.5.The card base is top folding. It is in a Valentine theme. I have one grandson, so I will be sending this sweet hello over to him! I used some red cardstock for the base. 

The focal point of my card design is the sweet little Winter Cat & Bird Sledding die set from the recent Cottage Cutz Winter Release. I started by cutting out my die pieces in white cardstock. I then colored my various pieces in with my markers. I set the sweet little bird on top of a cupcake.

I outlined the cupcake top with my pink marker and then used my stickles to give it a little extra sparkle. The cupcake is the retired Christmas tree cupcake, but there are a ton of super cute cupcakes that you could use. Check them out HERE

Here is a closer look at the sweet little bird. He is sitting on top of the finished sparkly cupcake top. 

Here is a closer look at the sweet little kitty. He is adorable! I love his little whiskers already cut into the die! 

Here is a closer look at the word hello. It is a sneak peek for an upcoming die! So stay tuned!

I decided to use some patterned paper for the background so I went ahead and colored my sentiments with my marker. Here is a shot showing that. I do like to start out with plain white die cuts. That way if I change my mind as I am creating my project, I can just color the pieces with a corresponding color. Easy Peasy!

Here is another shot of the little scene.

Here is the closeup of the focal point of my card. Once I finished assembling my die cuts, I adhered them to my square mat. The mat set consists of the cute Wacky stitched square die and then a red cardstock and patterned paper mat. The patterned papers are all from Doodlebug. The words A and Sweet came from the Sweet As A Christmas Cookie Die Set. The adorable hello is from an upcoming release! So you will want to stay tuned!

Here is one last look at my finished card.  I finished off my card by adding a border and bow from some Valentine ribbon I had in my stash.
