5.  Cut the Happy from Delightful Dijon card stock using the Hello You Thinlits.  This will work best on the Precision Base Plate.
6.  Lay your Cupcake pieces and Happy on your card front.  Decide where to stamp Birthday.  Stamp Birthday in Delightful Dijon ink.  Attach your Happy with glue and your Cupcake with the Stampin’ Dimensionals and Foam Adhesive Strips.
