As soon as the Christmas season was over, I couldn't wait to ink up my new Mama Elephant cupcake stamp set. I was so excited that I forgot that I had the matching die set and fussy cut everything ....duh! These sets were shown in a previous post. Anyway, since I needed a birthday card, it seemed perfect to use the Doodlebug 6x6 sugar shoppe paper, matching washi tapes, and pixie embellishments
For the card bases, I used the Mama Elephant scalloped card and stitched rectangle set. The doily was added so that the cupcake would be focused. I made an instant pull bow (ribbon from Ben Franklin Crafts) and wrapped it around the pixie stick. I love the pixie stick embellishments because they are a quick way to add some fun to your paper crafts and can even be used to decorate real cupcakes. The plate for the cupcake came from a Lawn Fawn (love you latte) set. The candle is from the Mama Elephant carnival toppers set and was colored with pink and orange Wink of Stella. To balance off the sparkling ribbon I added Martha Stewart large iridescent glitter to the cupcake frosting.
I forgot to take a photo of the inside of these cards so I will add it later. The birthday saying was stamped in white ink and heat embossed with white opaque powder. I couldn't resist adding the Doodlebug washi tape too because it adds just the right touch of color.
I feel that these cards came out well with just the right amount of cuteness to make them right for a young girl or just someone young at heart. I hope that you will visit HM Ben Franklin Crafts to see all the wonderful birthday crafting supplies. They will surely inspire you to make a B-day card for an upcoming occasion or one for your emergency card stash. Thanks for visiting....hope it was a delightful stop!
