The card base is Concord Crush cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. Then a piece of Springtime DSP (retired) was cut at 3 ¾” x 3”. The DSP was adhered to the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock. The greeting from Create A Cupcake was stamped just above the DSP and to the right in Concord Crush ink. A piece of Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon was wrapped around the Whisper White cardstock and tied into a knot. This panel was adhered to the card front.

Next A piece of Old Olive cardstock was cut at 2” x 5” and run through the Big Shot on the Two Tags Die. The very top of the tag was cut off with paper snips. The Scalloped Circle punch was used on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and the scalloped circle was adhered to the round portion of the tag.

The cupcake bottom was stamped in Concord Crush ink and the cupcake top was stamped in Blushing Bride ink. Two candles were stamped, one in Concord Crush and one in Blushing Bride. The cupcake pieces were punched out with the Build A Cupcake punch and were adhered together and to the Whisper White scalloped circle with the Two Way Glue Pen. The tag was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally just to dress it up a little one five pearls were added to the lower right hand corner of the DSP. That’s it! Come back later to see the sketch challenge from last week! Come back tomorrow to see another cupcake card!
