Create a Cupcake

The US Stampin' Up Create a Cupcake stamp set and coordinating Build a Cupcake punch are so much fun!

I was drawn to use pearlescent cardstock, which gives off the creamy lustre of cupcake icing. The cardstock was run through the Big Shot with a texture plate. The 1 1/4-inch striped grosgrain ribbon felt the perfect match for this card.

The sentiment was stamped onto the pearlescent cardstock and punched with the SU Modern Label Punch. I was pleased to see that the slightly larger Modern Label is available as a die (SU Movers & Shapers Punch Window Set -- US catalog only).

A bit of glitter on the cherries and pearls and jeweled embellishments and you've got a fast and easy-to-make birthday card.

Hi Kathy,

I love cupcakes and this card is so cute, I like the simplistic style, sometimes there's so much 'fluff' around the image you can't really see it, but this is great.
