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.
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.
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.
Punch about 12 cupcakes out of various patterned scrapbook paper. You can emboss one cupcake that you want to stand out, if desired.
Arrange the cupcakes on the cardstock as shown and adhere all with glue except one on the second row.
Place foam adhesives on the remaining cupcake.
Using a white gel pen, write "happy birthday" below the cupcakes.
Hole punch 6 holes in a row at the bottom of the card.
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)
I am a full-time mom of a beautiful little girl and am loving every minute of it! I enjoy crafting and bargain hunting. While my little one naps, I use that oh-so-precious time to scrapbook and paint/embellish photo frames. It's TONS of fun! You should try it! :0)
