Sweet Cupcake Shaped Card

I made this cute cupcake shaped card for our nephews little boy who is celebrating his first birthday this weekend. I wasn't sure what to use for a little boys card. So after looking through some of my Papercrafts magazines I thought a shaped cupcake card was just the ticket.  
Next I decided on what colors I should use and decided on a chocolate cake with an orange cupcake paper liner. I wanted some fun colors that would make a cute little boy card and picked Animal Crackers Matstack from DCWV.
The designs and colors are so fun in this matstack! 
The die I used to make the cupcake card is from Papertrey Ink. I love how the liner is embossed.
I used the Swiss Dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug to emboss the cupcake then I used Glossy Accent on the dots to make them shiny. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the candle and a Creative Memories star punch.
I used foam adhesive on the star and the happy birthday sentiment for some added dimension. I love the paper the star is punched from.
Hope Logan enjoys his card and birthday.

  1. This is such a cute card. And yes, boy cards are much harder than girl cards. With three grandsons, I am making some progress.
