Create a Cupcake Birthday Card

Last night I worked on a Birthday card for my brother.  I need to get it in the mail today and keep my fingers crossed that it arrives on time.  I struggled with this card as I wanted it to be masculine, fun, and easy to mail.  That meant no ribbon, flowers, rhinestones and everything I love to use on my cards. :(

So I decided to pull out the Create a Cupcake stamp set with the coordinating Cupcake Punch.  So what do you think?  Cute?  I love that little cupcake and I did add a bit of Cherry Cobbler glitter to the cherry!

Pin It
  • The colors are Real Red and Marina Mist on a Chocolate Chip card base.  The Designer Series Paper is from Pocketful of Posies.   
  • The large scallops were created with the 1 inch circle punch.
  • Since I didn't want to use brads or ribbon I did a little bit of paper piercing for interest.

I decorated the inside of the card with a matching strip of DSP and Marina Mist scallops .  Then I decided on a  big happy birthday!  Wish I could be there to help him celebrate.
