Cupcakes forever!

*Scroll down for free svg!

The challenge at Cupcake Crafts this week was to make a sweet birthday card, with the option of including a cupcake on it somewhere. So, I used this week's awesome sketch from 2 Sketches For You (above). For this card, I used these fun new Swirly Cupcake and the 2 Cherries digistamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. And now, she is running a special-spend $5.00, get a free digistamp. Be sure to check it out, she has lots of adorable new stamps!

I cut the card base out of white gold Wasau shimmer cardstock, and the pale green is from the DCWV Metallic cardstock.The green/brown patterned paper is from the Chocolate Cherry collab digi kit, I just printed on some Georgia Pacific white cardstock, and cut the bracket shape using my Cricut and SCAL. I added some cream colored trim (I think I got it from Walmart). Then, I cut the scalloped ovals from my Storybook Cricut cart, then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, and Martha Stewart Brownstone ink. I glued the 2 scalloped ovals together, then attached to the card with pop-dots above and below the trim. I then attached the cupcake digistamp, which I had already colored with Copics, and accented with Stickles. After that, I attached the 2 Cherries digistamp, which I had also colored with Copics and Stickles, and to finish it off, I added a little bow-shaped button from Dress-It-Up, and the sentiment, "Cupcakes Forever", an acrylic stamp from Studio G that I stamped on a scrap of the white gold cardstock with MS Brownstone, and inked the edges.

Thanks for looking, now head on over to the rest of the design team member's blogs, someone has a free digistamp for you! ;)
