Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday!

  These super sweet cupcakes are part of the Creative Cafe Kit of the Month - How Sweet it is!  The only thing better than these cupcakes are real ones!  It's Mary-Ann posting today with a simple quick card.

I started with a black base (A2 card - measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2).  Then the white block, slightly smaller.  I backed the entire white block with foam and wrapped my Queen & Co. twine that came with the kit, around several times.  I used a small piece of tape to secure the loose ends.  

I stamped the cupcake stamps on random pieces of papers.  I was careful not to waste paper, if I needed the top, I stamped only the top on the edge of the paper I chose.  I used Momento - tuxedo black to tie in with my twine and black base.  I fussy cut the tops and bottoms of my cupcakes, backing the bottom with one layer of foam and the tops with two layers of foam.  Once they were in place, I used Stickles to emphasize the sprinkles and cherry.  

Now, time to go and get some real cupcakes!

See you next Saturday!
