It's a Cupcake Kind of Day!

Who doesn't like a smiling cherry atop a cupcake?  I just can not let go of the 2013- 2015 In Colors!  Here is a birthday card using Soft Suede "chocolate" cake bases with Pistachio Pudding, Daffodil Delight and Strawberry Slush frosting. 

Use the Cupcake Party stamp set and stamp scraps of Whisper White card stock with Soft Suede ink for the cake bottoms.  Use other scraps to stamp the "pistachio pudding, lemon (daffodil delight) and strawberry slush frosting".  Punch them out using the Cupcake Builder punch on page 223 of the 2014-15 annual catalog.  (Or page 187 of the 2015 -16 catalog.)  TIP:  Use small scraps and a sticky note to hold the stamped pieces in place to avoid wasting card stock on cut outs you do not want to use.

Card stock dimensions are:
Daffodil Delight card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" , scored at 4 1/4" .
Calypso Coral is 2 1/2 " x 4 1/2 ".  The edge is punched with a retired punch.  Any edge punch would look nice.
Coastal Cabana is 2" x 4 1/4".
Whisper White is 1 7/8" x 4 1/8".

Adhere the cupcake bottoms to the Whisper White card stock.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the "frosting" above the cake bottom.  Add a cherry or HB flag on top!

Sale-A-Bration Best Day Ever Designer Series Paper, 1" x 5 1/2",  is adhered across the bottom of the Daffodil Delight card stock with a banner cut greeting raised with Stampin' Dimensionals on the right side. 

 Although it is a fun birthday card, you could leave off the HB flag and use it for any occasion.  Leave me a comment telling for what occasion you used this card.  Thanks for stopping by.

Here are the supplies I used to make "It's a Cupcake Kind of Day" card.
