50th Birthday Easel Card

I needed to make a 50th birthday card for a special someone.  I have always found it difficult to make masculine cards, I like to add flowers, bows, and bling too much!  So, I decided to try making an easel card.  This is my first attempt using the tutorial on Splitcoast, which can be found here.  It was actually pretty simple, I watched the video, and it made total sense!

The cupcakes were cut using the Sizzix Original Cupcake & Ice Cream Die.    I cut each cupcake out twice and sandwiched them foam tape to give them extra dimension.  The candles were cut using the Sweet Treat Cricut Cartridge.  I added some gold Stickles to flames.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Think Big Favorites #1 stamp set.  I couldn't resist adding a little embellishment, so I threaded some buttons with DMC floss and adhered them to the card.
