[Scrapperday: Cupcake Card]

This week I was inspired to make a birthday cupcake card. I received a weekly newsletter email from Michael's and saw an adorable card. I have always loved the use of repetition in cards. It's so simple yet very chic. Plus I already had this cupcake punch by Martha Stewart that I used for my daughter's first birthday party invitations.
Materials used in the card I made:

  • 6 x 12 white cardstock

  • 5 1/4 x 4 1/4 putty cardstock

  • 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 light pink cardstock

  • pieces of scrapbook paper in various colors

  • permanent glue runner

  • small foam adhesives

  • Martha Stewart cupcake punch

  • hole punch

  • scalloped edge scissors

  • light green satin ribbon

  • white gel pen

  • embossing pad, silver embossing powder, & heat embossing tool (optional)

  1. Fold 6 x 12 white cardstock in half and score it so that the finished size is a 6x6 square. Cut the bottom-front of the card with scalloped scissors.

  2. Adhere the pink cardstock to the top-front of the card with glue runner. Then, adhere the putty cardstock in the center of the pink cardstock, leaving about 1/16" of the pink showing.

  3. Punch about 12 cupcakes out of various patterned scrapbook paper. You can emboss one cupcake that you want to stand out, if desired.

  4. Arrange the cupcakes on the cardstock as shown and adhere all with glue except one on the second row.

  5. Place foam adhesives on the remaining cupcake.

  6. Using a white gel pen, write "happy birthday" below the cupcakes.

  7. Hole punch 6 holes in a row at the bottom of the card.

  8. Thread ribbon through the first hole and tie a knot so that it shows in the front of the card. Then continue threading the ribbon through the holes. Tie another knot at the other end of the card like you did earlier. Voila!
I will be linking up to these parties.
Happy Scrapperday! :0)
