Birthday, Calendar Card, Stampin' Up!

Easel Calendar Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Sweet Cupcake Bundle but it has been created as more of a gift that the recipient can keep all year long!

I’ve made this card for my husband’s aunt who loves my calendar cards and seeing as her birthday is on 1 December, it is perfect timing to send it to her with the 2017 calendar!

So today I have used the same colour scheme as Monday’s card; Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White. She wears a lot of orange so I thought this was perfect for her!

The ‘sweet’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits in the Gold Glimmer paper.

The card front is embossed using the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Peekaboo Peach & white ovals are die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

The icing is a 3-step stamping process using photopolymer stamps, so you can easily line them up. The first layer is So Saffron then Peekaboo Peach before the final layer of Watermelon Wonder. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the top for a shiny glazed effect! I stamped a die cut two of these cupcakes, one for the front and one for inside the card!

The mini calendar is placed at the bottom of the inside of the card, as this creates the easel.

Don’t forget to decorate inside your card and stamp on the envelope!

Birthday, Stampin' Up!

Make a Wish

Dear Crafters,

 

Who doesn’t love cupcakes? I know my family love them and what better way to say happy birthday, than with a cupcake!

So today I have a bright and cheery cupcake card using Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White.

The ‘wish’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits, but here’s a tip for you…

See the background card stock, emboss it first and then die cut the centre to save on card stock (see below). You will then cover it up with the Peekaboo Peach layer!!!! Adhere this to  the front of an A5 card.
