Hey Stampers…I’m here!
I wish I could say I’ve been on a beach somewhere holding on to a cute
little drink with an umbrella in it, but, alas, I was not. I’ve been down and out
with a bad hip and unable to stamp much for over two weeks! That has to be
a record with no time in the craft room!
I missed sending out a few birthday greetings while watching all that terrible tv…
like this Happy Birthday Cupcake! card, it wasn’t even finished until yesterday,
which also happened to be my friends birthday…oops…good thing she’s a BFF!
This cupcake is so fun to make!
The three step stamping technique used here really makes it
come out totally yummy…just look at those layers!
Who else loves chocolate frosting on their cupcake?
I feel a baking session coming on.
On the inside, it’s just a toned down version of the cupcake, with the greeting
“Happy Birthday” used ticker tape style across the top and bottom.
It’s stamped on the same Whisper White card stock as the rest of the card, but
for some reason is keeps coming out looking grey in the photo. After several
attempts to fix it, I’ve decided it is what it is… but I still wanted you to see it so
here it is… just imagine it in clean white 🙂
Wait…maybe I should have just wiggled my nose and used a little magic
The Melon Mambo belly band (she loves pink) helps keep this gate fold
card closed. TIP:Try keeping most of the embellishments on the band for
easy removal…I got carried away and added a few extra sequins
without thinking about that, but in this case it still works fine. Phew!
A closer look at those adorable curly cues from the Cupcake Cutout
Framelits…so fun! They remind me of the white swirl on top of a
famous chocolate cupcake that was a childhood favorite. I always
peeled off the layer of frosting and ate it last…YUM!
Hope you enjoy this Happy Birthday Cupcake!…
