Shimmer Sheetz Cupcake Birthday Cards

Cupcake 3

Hello, everybody, I’m back as today’s guest designer with a recipe for zero-calorie cupcakes! They’re not as yummy as the ones my neighbor bakes, of course, but hers can’t be attached to a birthday card and sent through the mail while these are just perfect for that purpose…

Altered Savings Bank

March 10, 2016

Hello there, Sanna here again with my first March project. I have recently discovered how much fun it can be creating your own home décor objects. I like to make practical things with a purpose besides looking good, hence, a savings bank made from a box as an altered object. I can use it to hold money I’m saving and it is a pretty accent for a mantel, shelf or table.

Birthday Cupcakes Card

I’ve been meaning to make a birthday card with these cute little cupcake dies so finally, here it is!
I also used one of the Elizabeth Craft Designs embossing folders to create the background; the darker ink on the lighter card stock really brings out the detail.

Making the Card

1. Cut dark blue cardstock to 4.25” x 11”, score and fold in half. Cut a rectangle from black cardstock 4” x 5.25”. Cut a rectangle from light blue card stock 3.75” x 5”.

2. Emboss light blue cardstock using the Flower Mosaic folder. Lightly rub the raised design with Distress ink (I used Peacock Feathers).

3. Using the label accessory die from the Lucy Label Pop Up, die cut one label from dark blue and one from light blue cardstock. Use a mask to add stripes or a chevron patter to the light blue label with the foam blender. Draw stitches around the edge in back (I used a black glitter pen to give it extra sparkle). Adhere “Happy Birthday !” Peel-off.

4. Cut double-sided adhesive – enough for 2 cupcakes – and stick one side to a piece of white cardstock. Die cut 2 cupcakes from black cardstock. Pull off backing from adhesive and stick cupcake outlines to it. Coat and polish each with Cool Diamonds Microfine Glitter.

5. Color the cupcakes (I used Copic markers for this). Once colored, carefully cut out cupcakes. Run a black marker around the edges to hide any white. Color the bow and cherry red, even though these will be covered.

6. Cut a strip of dark blue cardstock about a quarter of an inch. Cut a strip from the Red Velvet Adhesive Sheet, a little smaller than an eighth of an inch. Cut the cupcake bow and heart (accessory in Accordion Oval Card set) from the Red Velvet Adhesive Sheet.

7. Assemble the card as shown using dimensional tape under the top cupcake and the top label (offset from the bottom). Put a little dimensional tape under the part of the heart that sticks off the label.

8. Embellish with red enamel dot for cherry, dot stickers on label, and a dab of Glossy Accents on the candle flame (optional).
