Create a Cupcake Makes for a Bright Birthday

When you are making a birthday card for someone, isn’t one of the top things on your mind all about making them smile?  Well, unless the birthday boy or girl hates cupcakes (is that even possible?!) I’m going to bet this one will bring a smile to their face!

At least it does for me every time I pull out this card. Smile

I designed this card for my technique class recently where we focused on paper piercing so I used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack for the Decorative Label Punch shape around the outside of the punchout.  Then I used the rows of holes on the template to make even photo corners around each corner of the Whisper White cardstock.


Here is a close up of what I’m talking about:

Plus, with the coordinating Cupcake punch, it makes it easy to get your cupcake together too.

And speaking of birthdays, today is my Dad’s birthday!  I’m happy to be celebrating with him and my mom today and before we left to go visit, Nicholas decided to create a card just for Grandpa.  He picked out the stamp set, the colors, the punches, and where to glue everything down.  He may be 3, but he loves making cards for people too!
