Create A Cupcake Birthday Card

I'm a little late posting this one today. I guess better late than never, huh? I decided to use two challenges that are out there on this card. The card sketch is from Create With Connie and Mary (CCMC 136), and the color combo is from Pals Paper Arts (PPA 79).

I wanted to use my Create A Cupcake stamp set again, along with my Build A Cupcake Punch (both on p. 22 in the Occasions Mini). I'm really having fun with this set, and I think it's so cute!

It's hard to tell in the picture, but the scallop circle is attached with dimensionals, as well as the cupcake top (icing). I love how easy it is to punch out the cupcake parts along with the cherry on the top. It would have taken a lot longer if I would have had to cut them free-hand.

The bow is two pieces of ribbon. I attached the 6" ribbon by wrapping it around the Certainly Celery piece and attaching each end to the back. Then, I tied the bow on top with a separate 15" piece of ribbon, and trimmed the ends. This makes tying the bow easier, and it enabled me to slide the bow exactly where I wanted it after tying it. I also used the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing Tool (p. 198) to make the holes for the Rich Razzleberry brads from the Glimmer Brights Brads pack (p. 31 in the Occasions Mini).
