Celebrate Today

Hello everyone! It's Amber here, today I'm sharing another fun card I created with this months Creative Cafe Card Kit- Special Celebrations. This card is all about the stamps and patterned paper that can be found in the kit. Below you will find a quick step by step tutorial. 

Step 1. I started by folding an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock in half to create a 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" card base.

Step 2. Cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of patterned paper, this will cover the base of your card. Before adhering it to your card base wrap a piece of blue twine around your patterned paper and tie a bow off to the left side. 

Step 3. Cut a 3 1/4" x 4" piece of  coordinating patterned paper, set aside. This will be used to mat your stamped panel. 

Step 4. Cut a 3 3/8" x 3 3/4" piece of white cardstock, stamp your cupcake image and sentiment. The cupcake image and sentiment I used is from the #EatCake set.

Step 5. Paper piece or color your image. I wanted my cupcake to coordinate with my background patterned paper so I paper pieced my cupcake with some patterned paper from the 6 x 6  paper pad.

Step 6. Adhere your stamped panel to the piece of patterned paper you cut and set aside in step 3.

Step 7. Adhere the whole panel at a diagonal to your card base.

Step 8. Fussy cut one of the flowers from the 6 x 6 On Trend paper pad and adhere it to the right side of your cupcake.

Step 8. Add some Queen & Company Sliver Pearls to the center of your fussy cut flower, bow, and the upper right side of your stamped panel. 

That's it your finished. You can check out a close up below. 

I hope you enjoyed my card and step by step tutorial today. Thanks for stopping!
