For My Cupcake!


My husband has a birthday next month and I thought this would make a cute card to show my love. Every time I look at it though it reminds me of Valentine's Day. Maybe I can re-work it a bit and use it as a Valentines card too!

I haven't sewn on a card in a while but I like doing it and like the look of it. I don't know why I haven't done this more - I would say that maybe I'm just too lazy to drag out the sewing machine, etc......however, the sewing machine is already out! SO, I really have no excuse.

The patterned paper I used is called Love you Much from SU. Lots of possibilities with this paper. The stamp set is Hero Arts Cupcakes from i {heart} papers. There are six different cupcakes in the set - different sizes. Plus, it has all the "accessories", like a candle, cherry, flower, and sentiments. Very cute set. The "frame" around the cupcake was made using my scalloped square Nestibilities from i {heart} papers - and - don't tell anyone but I used the Bow-Easy (yes, I know, AGAIN). I stamped the cupcake, cut it out, paper pieced the holder and the heart, "glittered" the icing, and then popped it up on dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by................
