July Card Making Night - Part 1

Card Making Night was a lot of fun this week.  We made two different birthday cards. One using the amazingly awesome cupcake punch and the other using the Nature's Walk Stamp Set. Rather than make one huge post I thought I would feature each card in it's own post. Today I'll give you the highlights of the cupcake punch card.

The cupcake cake punch is so cute and it coordinates with the Create a Cupcake stamp set (WM 121915, CM 121982)

Design Tips:
  • To give the cupcake wrapper some realistic detail, run Soft Suede card stock through a paper crimper then make it "pop" with some Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Tie some linen thread around the wrapper for some added wow.
  • Frost the Frosting with a little Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter.
  • Embellish the cupcake with a tiny flower and mini pearl.
  • Add a Birthday Greeting from the "Bring on the Cake" or the "Create a Cupcake" stamp set
