ADORABLE!!!! The final card size is 4-1/2″ x 6″ so a little bigger than normal card size ( 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) so you could make a matching envelope or just find bigger size envelopes. However, this is super simple to make. The tough part is thinking about how to decorate it 😉
You could decorate front, top and back or just front and top….. either ways…. it looks cute…. and surely will bring smile to the receiver’s face. Deb Valder has a perfect tutorial explaining how to make this card (I loved how she explained it compared to the other 2 videos). Click HERE for the tutorial.
For this project, I used Vanilla base, and layered it with Espresso Cardstock and Everyday Enchantment Pattern Paper (All paper from Stampin’ Up!). The stamps are from following sets: Ciao, Baby!, A Fitting Occasion and Create A Cupcake (All by Stampin’ Up! and now retired) and used the coordinating punches. I decided to add some sparkle…so I did some gold embossing on the cupcake holder and added some blue rhinestones for sprinkles on the icing!
I enjoyed making it… and intend to make more for other occasions 😀 and give it better finishing touches then this 😉
Until next time,
