Caroline's Cupcake Card


Caroline, a fellow stamper, celebrated her birthday this past week. Happy Birthday, Caroline!

Here is the cupcake birthday card that I sent her; it features Stampin' Up's Crazy For Cupcakes stamp set.

I have a few different versions of the cards, as you can see. The designer papers are from BoBunny.


The cupcake was made by stamping onto an ivory cardstock using a Chocolate Chip SU ink pad. It was heat set with a pearlescent embossing powder. A second cupcake was embossed onto the coral colored BoBunny paper. I cut out the bottom of the cupcake from the coral colored paper and glued it onto the cupcake stamped on the ivory paper; I then cut out the cupcake.

Creamy colored Copic Ciao markers were used to color the cupcake icing. A selection of other Copic Ciao markers were used to color the candle, sprinkles and flame.

The circular cutout was made from ivory cardstock and a Spellbinder's Nestability die. I used Stampin' Up Groovy Guava to distress a Cuttlebug embossing folder, sandwiched in my die cut circle, and ran it through the Cuttlebug.

The Make a Wish stamp is from Woodware. It was inked with Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip ink and heat set with a pearlescent embossing powder.

BoBunny gingham green ribbon was used on one card; the two other cards have Stampin' Up Groovy Guava ribbon.
