Birthday Cupcake Cards

This month's creative club project was inspired by the wonderful Lisa Stenz. (Woo Hoo!) She designed a birthday card project using our new 2" scallop punch and our new Card Chatter - Birthday stamp set! Here is my version:

And I always say - while you have your stamps and inks out - go ahead and create a coordinating envelope to go with it! Here, I used the Fanfare Workshop on the Go stamp set for the cupcake image.

This project teaches some very cool techniques including using a paper crimper for the cupcake "papers" and our very fun 2" scallop punch for the cupcake top! It also includes one of my very favorite new stamp sets - Card Chatter Birthday! This stamp set includes coordinating inside/outside birthday greetings!

As an alternative, I wanted to create another version that wasn't so feminine - more multi-purpose. In this version I used white cardstock for the cupcake top - then topped it with Liquid Applique and REAL cupcake sprinkles!

I'll post a video tutorial of this technique next so you can see how fun and easy this is!
