Eat A Cupcake

Sometimes we just need to Keep Calm and Eat A Cupcake.  :)  This is the card I sent to my dad while he waits for test results.  It's never easy to wait for the doctor's call, but as long as you're waiting why not eat a cupcake?  :)

As you can see I played with a new (to me) punch, the cupcake builder.  I don't own the stamps that go along with this cute punch, so I used paper.  The cupcake liner is Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper from the Brights Patterns Stack.  The frosting top is Chocolate Chip cardstock that I ran through the dots embossing folder. 


While I had the Big Shot out I embossed the oval from the Set of Designer Frames, then I stamped my sentiment.  The card is an unusual shape, but it will fit in a standard letter envelope. It's 6x6" folded in half to make a 3x6" card.



Can you see the little cupcake I stamped inside?  I colored the stamp with my markers.  My ribbon is wrapped around the bottom of the card.  I cut a little slit in the fold of the card so I could thread the Taffeta ribbon through the slit.


Creative Blessings,

I was just looking at this set, which I adore! and have this folder out, but wouldn't have thought to put them together...I love the pop of the punch...I might need to be making a card like this. Thanks for the inspiration.

I am making this as a birthday card for my son's teacher! I've been waiting to find a reason to make it...Why? I don't know. It's a great card!! I don't have the frame EF so I'll just make an oval backing. Thanks!

Your son's teacher is sure to love it, Deb. :)
