Create a Cupcake Birthday Card

I bet you thought I was going to be making yet another baby card.  Nope, got a break from making those for now!!! 

This card was made using the new "Create a Cupcake" set that will be available on January 4th! 

Now that I look at this card I am thinking I should have used the Dotted Swiss dry embossing background folder.  It's a bit blah! 

It was an easy card to make though.  The main card part is a 1/4 piece of Basic Gray card stock.  On top of that is a folded piece of Whisper White card stock. I cut the card stock in half, then I folded it.  Once it was folded I cut it to fit.  I sometimes mess it up if I cut it first.  It's just easier to cut it after folding.  It's not like you are cutting of a lot on the edges, the pieces are so small that I can't imagine doing anything with them except recycling them!

I used a piece of decorative paper from the new "Love Impressions" package.  There's LOTS of pretty papers in that pack!

Originally I had stamped the hearts but had no luck lining them up. Not even with the Stamp-a-ma-jig!  So I got out the tiny heart punch and punched them out of Regal Rose card stock. 

The cupcakes were stamped on Whisper White card stock and then punched out with the new punch!  This was a fun card to make and I like it except for that white background.  Oh well!!
