Cupcake Crazy


A late November birthday gets lost in Thanksgiving celebrations and a December birthday gets lost in Christmas, so I like to make sure the birthday cards I send look nothing like a holiday.  Here’s a card that’s easy to make in a hurry, but still looks like it is especially for a birthday.




Note: finished card size is 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”

Whisper White (SU!)

4 1/4” x 11”, score at 5 1/2”

Stamper’s Select White (Paper Trey)

3” x 4”

Rose Red (SU!)

a)  4 x 5 1/4”
b) 3” x 4”

Patterned paper (unknown)

3 3/4” x 5”


Tuxedo Black (Memento)


Cupcake Crazy (SU!) 


COPIC Markers: BG000, BG11, BG13, RV10, RV21, E31 (Imagination International); SPICA Glitter Pens: red, blossom, turquoise, gold (Imagination International); Pink ribbon (Hobby Lobby); Scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Plain Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Cuttlebug (Provo Craft); Scor-Pal; Adhesive Transfer Gun 714 (Scotch); Rotary trimmer with straight and scalloped blades (Fiskars); Scissors



Using the black ink, stamp the cupcake image on the Paper Trey white cardstock piece, and cut it out with the plain oval die.  Run it through twice – once to cut and once to emboss.

Color with COPICs, and enhance the image with the SPICA glitter pens.


Cut a scalloped oval out of the smaller pink card stock.  Use a scalloped edge blade to cut the patterned paper panel.

Mount in this order:

  • pink cardstock
  • patterned paper
  • pink oval
  • image oval

Tie the ribbon around the card in a bow above the mounted image.

Thanks for stopping by!
