Happy Birthday Cupcake...

How cute is this FREE file...free for awhile, lol....from Fleurette Bloom! Who doesn't love a cute cupcake...and this one is very cute! I like that it is so versatile. You can use or not use whatever layers your want. I chose to not use the top layer of the cupcake paper. Use brights or pastels, you are your own designer.

Here's how I made mine.


I love these bright colors from Doodlebug. They just make me happy! I picked my pattern papers and then chose the solids to match. I welded a shadow layer of the cupcake base to the edge of the card. The length is 11 inches scored at 5.5. Then I put on the stripe paper, assembled the cupcake, and attached with foam adhesive. 


I added the flower on the side and used my white gel pen for some accents. I added a bright pink enamel dot to the center of the flower. Also a bit of inking on the edges.


I wrapped twine around the card and tied a bow. I cut the labels using my dies from My Creative Time and used white embossing powder for the sentiment. Happy Birthday comes from a Simon Says stamp set. I added a few more enamel dots to fill that corner up a bit.

So...there you have it...a super cute, bright and fun birthday card. And it went together so fast! Very fun to make. And you don't have to weld it to the edge, you could just have it hang off a bit. I just liked the shaped edge.

Here's what you need to make this card.


I hope you got a bit of inspiration from my project. Happy crafting!
