Cupcake Special 6x6#10&11

 Celebrations used to be all about the CAKE! Wanting that corner piece with the flower and the most frosting, maybe even a bit bigger than the other pieces. NOT ANYMORE! Everybody gets a cupcake now. Is it portion control? Equality? Less cleanup? Here are two cards with different sentiments to celebrate the special day. What do you think?

Cupcake Special #10

Cupcake Special #11

   Hello Cupcake

   Peekaboo Peach A-2
   Playful Palette DSP 3" Sq.
   Vellum 2-1/2" Sq.
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Sweet Sugarplum
   Emerald Envy


   Playful Palette Washi Tape
   Glue Dots

I used Layout #5 to make these cards:

I cut the 6x6 sheet into three inch squares. Each square is used on a separate card. 

First, I stamped my cupcakes onto a vellum square, using Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy. 

I then adhered the vellum onto the DSP using glue dots. The Playful Palette DSP square was then adhered to the top half of the card base. 

I then stamped the sentiment on the bottom portion of the card base and added a strip of washi tape. 

I added a Whisper White panel to the inside of the card. You can choose to change this to Very Vanilla or omit it completely.

  1. 2 great birthday cards. I was never one for wanting the corner piece as it seemed too sweet but I don't mind a cup cake. I can take half the icing off and still enjoy it. Yum!

  2. Such sweetness, Sally - now I want a cupcake. ;)
