Melon Celery Birthday - Cupcake Class 1

I am finally getting around to posting the samples from my special Cupcake Card Class. This was a special class that I held where the ladies pre-paid and received the cupcake stamp set, cupcake punch, Springtime DSP, Glitter Paper, and ribbon as well as getting to make 6 cards and taking home the remaining supplies.

This first card was inspired by a card created by Dawn Olchefske. You can find her card and her blog HERE.
So here is the first card:

Stamps: Create A Cupcake
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Glitter Paper
DSP: Springtime DSP
Ink: Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Tasteful Trim Die, 2 ½” Circle Punch, Cupcake Punch, Stampin’ Sponge, Rose Red Seam Binding ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Two-Way Glue Pen

The card base is Melon Mambo cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 1/4”. A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 3 ½” x 4” and set aside. Two pieces of Whisper White cardstock were cut at 3 ½” x 1” and were run through the Big Shot on the Tasteful Trim Die. When placing these on the tasteful trim die make to place them so that the scallops on one piece will alternate with the scallops on the other piece so the scallops do not line up directly one on top of the other. Does this make sense? You can see what I mean in the photo.

The edges of the scalloped pieces were sponged with Melon Mambo ink. One layer of scallops is adhered on top of the other and then the 3 ½” x 4” Whisper White panel is adhered to the very top of the top row of scallops. A piece of Springtime DSP is cut at 3 ¼” x 3 ¾” and adhered onto the large section of Whisper White cardstock. A piece of Rose Red Seam Binding ribbon is wrapped around the cardstock over where the large panel meets the scallops and tied into a bow. This panel was adhered to the card front.

The cupcake top was stamped in Certainly Celery ink and the sprinkles were stamped in Melon Mambo ink. The cupcake bottom was stamped in Melon Mambo ink. The cupcake pieces were punched out with the Cupcake Punch and a cherry was punched from Real Red Glimmer Paper. The cherry was adhered to the cupcake top with the Two-Way Glue Pen.

The 2 ½” Circle Punch was used on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock to punch out a circle. The greeting was stamped in Melon Mambo ink at the bottom of the circle. The cupcake top and cupcake bottom were adhered to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The circle was adhered to the card front with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the first of the Cupcake Card Class cards! Come back tomorrow to see another!
