Bubblegum, Bubblegum. In A Dish…

Hi, everyone! Welcome to the CDD Daily Post being brought to you by The Relativity of Paper. What do you get when you mix Craftin Desert Divas Shake It Up Dies with a childhood rhyme from a game? A fun birthday card. 

 Do you remember Bubblegum, Bubblegum in a dish? You would stand in a circle, fist out; the counter would tap everyone’s fist including their own (this usually required the counter to tap their chest because that was the cool thing to do), the person you ended on picked a number 1 through 20, then the counter started tapping everyone’s fist while counting to said number. Whichever fist the counter ended on was out, and you would put your hand behind your back, both fists out meant you lose! Oh, times were so much easier, right?

The inside sentiment reads: 

We hope all your bubble gum wishes come true. Happy Birthday!

Here are the products I used:


4.25″x 5.5″ card base – 8.5″ x 11″ #110 cardstock scored at 5.5″ and cut at 4.25″ to create to top fold card bases


Die-cut pink patterned paper using largest Fancy Frame Die

Die-cut yellow patterned paper using Shake It Up Dies

Die-cut bottom half of bubble gum machine with matching patterned papers and silver cardstock

Type sentiment on white cardstock and die-cut using Flag Banner Dies


Add fun foam to the back of pink patterned paper and adhere to card base

Position die-cut circle 

Add 3D Mounting Foam to back of bottom portion of machine and adhere to card base being sure to align with circle to create your bubble gum machine, add die-cut details to finish off the machine

  1. Adhere bubblegum either using die-cut circles from the Shake It Up Dies or using Puffy Stickers like I did here
