Let's celebrate one special birthday with a Create a Cupcake birthday card. August seems to be a big month for birthdays but I didn't think it was that way when I was growing up. There was mine and my grandpa's in August, making me on the young side when I started school. By junior high I knew another girl that had a birthday in August. But now I know lots of people with August birthdays! And I need to make some cards!
This card started as being somewhat of a CASE of a card in the Stampin' Up! Catalog, but I went on to make my own version. The Create a Cupcake stamp set is a cute one and if you have the matching Cupcake Punch #121807 there's no cutting involved! I also made good use of the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine #113439 with the background embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder #117335, the pretty border cut with the Finishing Touches Edgelit #1217010 and the doily layer cut with the Delicate Doilies Sizzlit #126999. The little flowers stamped at the bottom with Versamark #102283 are also in the Create a Cupcake stamp set.
You can't see in the photo, but I embossed the tiny cherry with our Cherry Scented Stampin' Emboss Powder #127035. I think the cherry was too tiny to have an impact with the scent but it was fun to try. And for some bling I got carried away with the Basic Rhinestone Jewels #119246
Be sure to make the inside of your Create a Cupcake Birthday Card pretty as well!
