Pop Up Cupcake Card

This card is the third of three that my darling daughter asked me to make this last week. Her friend turned 18 this past week and she needed a card. She didn’t give me much direction sooooooo he got a cupcake pop up card for his birthday.

Because this card was going to be for an 18-year-old boy I wanted to find some masculine paper so I dug into my crazy pile of patterned paper and I came up with this.


I thought it would fun to use my Karen Burniston Cupcake pop up die set, (here are her video directions

step one, create the pop-up.


to cover the hole where the pop-up is I cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and I rubbed my Early Espresso ink pad over it to distress it,


I cut a piece of the designer paper to fit the front panel. I cut the Happy Birthday greeting out three times, layered them and adhered it to the right side of the patterned paper, and I wrapped a piece of Twill Ribbon around the bottom and tied it into a knot,


I used scraps of the patterned paper to cut out the cupcake wrapper, bow, and the balloons.


To decorate the cupcake I used Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing paste and Iced the cupcake then added a little glitter.


I assembled all the pieces, and I added a border to the bottom of the card.







Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.
