The card I am sharing with you is for the The Shabby Tea Room birthday bash challenge. For this challenge you must include a cup cake.
I recently made an Easter card. I really love the design and how it looked so I have used it again for this card!
To make the cupcake, I drew a cupcake base template that would fit inside the oval die I planned to use. I selected a piece of patterned paper then used a punch to add a decorative edge. Using my Scorpal, I created score lines which I then folded. I used a strong double sided tape to adhere the cupcake to the base.
Using another piece of cardstock, I sketched an outline for the cake. I punched a lot of flowers and glued them along the base of the cake (just one row). Next I glued the cake to the base so that the flowers were semi covered by the base. I continued punching and gluing the flowers to finish the cupcake.
Using a background stamp, I created a background paper which I then inked around the edges. I also used die cut layers to add some interest.
To finish it off, a pretty bow, trinket pin and pearl sticker as well as....a tiny sentiment!
