Stampin’ Up! Create a Cupcake & Cupcake Builder punch Christmas card – perfect for all occasions! Really!!
OK, so it may be a little late for making Christmas cards, but with a pirouette pink background in stead of the Gumball Green it would be a great Valentine. Or add a Bashful Blue background and wish someone a happy birthday. Well, you get the idea.
This card is quick and easy with a few punches. To make the cupcake stand, I started with few punches: Scallop Trim Border, Curly Label & Cupcake Builder. I cut a strip of Basic Black cardstock, punched the Scallop Border and added a narrow strip of Real Red cardstock.
To create the base, I used the Curly Label punch and reinserted to repunch one side to make it short and narrow. Then I assembled the base by cutting off a four-scallop section of the punched strip, flipping scallops up and adhering it to the bottom of the base. The rest of the stand is created with the punched strips, scallops down. Easy!
The cupcakes are punched from the Polka Dot Parade Real Red Designer Series Paper and Whisper White cardstock. I sponged the cupcake tops with Real Red. I think it looks like a dusting of red sugar. I punched the cherries and the sprinkles from Glimmer Paper for extra special sparkle!
Merry Christmas!
