Cupcake Celebration

June 16, 2017

Do you like to celebrate birthday’s with cake?  Birgit here with you today with a sweet cupcake card to celebrate any occasion.


Here’s how I made it:

Start with a light green A2 sized top folding card base.

Cut two 4″ x 5 1/4″ white cardstock panels.

Cut the centers out of each panel using two sizes of Stitched Rectangles.  The frame with the smaller opening is for the bottom layer and the frame with the larger opening is the top layer.

Apply foam tape to the top frame and adhere it to the bottom frame, creating a mat.

Cut a piece of Thinking About – Rio De Janeiro paper slightly larger than the opening in your matte and adhere it using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Use the two largest Stitched Rectangles to create a frame by taping the two dies together and running them through your die cutting machine using white cardstock and glue them together using Kids Choice Glue.  This gives the frame some depth.

Adhere the frame to the top mat using Kids Choice Glue.

Cut the pieces of the cupcake using the Cupcakes die, out of white cardstock and Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock and add color to the base using Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and assemble the cupcake using Kid’s choice Glue.  Color the cherry using Copic markers and  heat emboss it using clear embossing powder.

Cut the word “Celebrate”  out of the same Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock and apply Broken China Distress Oxide Ink to the bottom of the die giving it an ombre effect.

Adhere the cupcake  and the “Celebrate” die to the center of your card using Kids Choice Glue.


I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  ~ Birgit
