Birthday Cupcakes


Today's card is for my SIL, Jeanie. Jeanie is a cardmaker, too, so I wanted to do something fun! I made this card during the Hero Arts 90-minute Scramble last weekend. The challenge was to make a birthday card with more than one fold. My card has the "main" fold at the bottom, and then the top has a flap that folds down. After scoring my folds, I used my circle cutter to round the flap. Then I covered the card front and the flap using papers from My Mind's Eye's Quite Contrary collection. Such pretty and fun colors! The string and button closure holds the top flap down, and can easily be untied to open the card.
The cupcake and sentiment stamps are all from Hero Arts. I paper pieced the cupcakes and added some Crystal stickles to the frosting. I originally stamped the sentiment directly on the card front, but it just didn't "pop" the way I wanted it to, so I stamped the words again on cardstock scraps, trimmed, and adhered them right over the originals using foam squares.
Thanks for stopping by! I will have lots more shares in the next few days (all of my submission rejects, lol!)
