Happy Birthday Cupcake---Floating Cupcake Card
First I want to thank everyone who left me such "sweet" comments on my post yesterday. I had a GREAT time making the ice cream cake pops and sharing them with everyone. Your comments like all comments we receive really made my day....So Thanks Again!!
Today I wanted to share this birthday card I made. I recently came across this awesome blog..My Craft Spot and she did a tutorial on how she made her floating candle card. I of course had to give it a try. Mine is a floating cupcake :)
I did have to play around with the dimensions on my gypsy and once I figured it all out I was good...lots of trial and error.
The base is George and Basic Shapes welded together to measure 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I added a rectangle cut into the middle of the base and then into the middle of the top layer. This is where my trial and error was.
The cupcake is from the Simply Charmed Cart and it was cut at 1.75 as well as all the layers. (you need 2 shadow cuts for this...one for the front and onc to cover that back). The birthday sentiment is also from simply charmed and that is cut at 2".
I stamped his face with a PKS...alittle too big for this cupcake but I still think it is cute
I added stickles to the candles, home made skittles to the corners, some bakers twine to the side and alittle stitching around the outside.
I really like how this came out!!
Hope you do too :)
