Close to My Heart, Silhouette

Sweet Birthday

I have wanted to play with this set for awhile & it seemed perfect for my niece who is turning 3.

It is called Sweet Birthday & can be found in the current CTMH catalog. I also purchased the Sweet Birthday Thin Cuts and let me tell you, this is so handy for whipping up a quick card or two.

Sweet Birthday stamp & Thin Cuts by Close to My Heart


I stamped these using Black Memento ink since I knew I would be coloring them in & I didn’t want the ink to bleed. I love the little faces that you can add to the cupcake or you can just add sprinkles or nothing at all.

I used a combination of sponging on ink & coloring with my Shin Han markers. Then I added clear sparkles to everything with my CTMH Shimmer brush.

I took several different Happy Birthday sentiments & added them to my card.

I enjoy making these card in a boxes and love that I found a cut file so all I need to do is decide what papers I want to use & load my mat in my Silhouette machine.

You can find the file at and it’s on sale for $1.00 right now.


I hope you enjoy this idea!!
