Cupcakes seem to be the "BIG THING" lately and I'm having fun making a variety of cupcake cards (well, at least these cupcakes are FAT FREE!)

I came across a method to use a border punch on a curved edge. I wish I could remember where I found this, as I would like to give this very creative person credit. I decided to give it a try with this card.

The bottom layer of the card is red cardstock, embossed using my Cuttlebug and a Sizzix folder. I cut two ovals using my Cricut and George, two different sizes. I embossed the top (smaller) oval with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug folder. I used this bright green cardstock (I'm getting braver in my color choices!) and used the Martha Stewart Border punch and clipped the straight edge between the two scallops to allow the paper to curve. I lined it up along the edge of the large oval and attached it to the back.

Cupcake was cut using Doodlecharms and I colored the flame and the bottom of the cupcake with Copic markers. The frosting was embossed using D'Vine swirls and the Cuttlebug.

Hope you enjoyed today's project. Wishing you a crafty weekend!

Koala-t hugs,



  1. The paper lace frame around the cupcake looks so delicate and pretty...yummy cupcake card!

  2. Looks awesome! I think I saw that technique too, but I can't remember where either. *LOL*
