Cupcake Birthday Card

I tried out some new paper I received from Northridge Publishing’s Christmas giveaway. The floral paper is from American Crafts’ Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic! I love how pretty this paper is! This was my starting point for a birthday card for my dear mother-in-law! It went really well with the Recollections Preppy Beach cardstock my sister gave me for my birthday!

The cupcake is from Cricut’s Straight from the Nest cartridge cut at 4 inches.  I ran the cupcake icing through my D’vine Swirls embossing folder. I then took a Versamark pad and rubbed it on the embossed swirls for a bit of definition. I used Liquid Pearls for the sprinkles. The cupcake is finished off with a bit of Dear Lizzy ribbon. My MIL loves all kinds of music and I thought this ribbon added a nice touch.

The envelope and liner are cut from Wild Card (doily blackout) at 5 inches. The inside stamped sentiment is from Fiskars All Year Greetings.

  1. What a fun card Vanessa!!! I’m sure your mother-in-law will love it!!! I love how perfectly all the colors tie in together. I have to remember to use my Versamark pad on the D’vine swirls the next time. It really came out beautifully! Love this card!!! ~Sophia

    • Thanks so much Sophia! The versamark pad idea came to mind when I tried it on that fish bowl card a while back. It adds a nice change to the color of the paper – just a hint of difference but I like it :). Thanks for the lovely visit and comment! ~V
