My favorite cards to make are floral images, but they don’t make very good masculine birthday cards. Birthday Cupcakes are very neutral and who doesn’t like a cupcake and so I decided to use three.
A long time ago I purchase a paper pack of glitter paper. I pulled out some white, yellow, and orange to die cut the cupcakes from Avery Elle Cupcakes. To add some dimension Copic Markers YR24, YR07, and C3 were used to add shading to the images.
A top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock. The cupcakes were adhered to the front using Tombo Mono Multi Glue for the two side cupcakes and the middle cupcake was adhered using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.
For the sentiment I pulled out The Paper Studio eat Cake 12 x 12 Paper Pad and cut a strip of Celebrate. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back for dimension.
I’ve seen Kristin Werner add dash lines with a white pen to some of her cards and decided that it would look good. I really like the way it turned out.
