Happy Birthday

The card I am sharing with you is for the The Shabby Tea Room birthday bash challenge. For this challenge you must include a cup cake.

I recently made an Easter card. I really love the design and how it looked so I have used it again for this card!

To make the cupcake, I drew a cupcake base template that would fit inside the oval die I planned to use. I selected a piece of patterned paper then used a punch to add a decorative edge. Using my Scorpal, I created score lines which I then folded. I used a strong double sided tape to adhere the cupcake to the base.

Using another piece of cardstock, I sketched an outline for the cake. I punched a lot of flowers and glued them along the base of the cake (just one row). Next I glued the cake to the base so that the flowers were semi covered by the base. I continued punching and gluing the flowers to finish the cupcake.

Using a background stamp, I created a background paper which I then inked around the edges. I also used die cut layers to add some interest.

To finish it off, a pretty bow, trinket pin and pearl sticker as well as....a tiny sentiment!


Paper: DCWV pastel paper stack, Grant Archival paper pack, Grant Archival neutral paper stack

Ink: Stampin’ Up soft suede, Distress Ink antique linen

Stamps: Stampin’ Up En Francais and Teeny Tiny Sentiments

Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities lacey ovales, classic ovals large, Spellbinders Shapeabilities standard tag, fleur de lis pendant, Hooked on Craft trinket pin, Prima flower, EK Success small daisy punch, Stampin’ Up eyelet border punch, Scor Pal, Christna Re pearl sticker, Bow easy, pink gingham ribbon, gold nylon ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
