Since the theme is Something to Eat or Drink,
I chose to use a the Birthday Cupcake design from their great selection of images.
I had some ideas as soon as I spied this calorie free delight.
First I printed this out 4 times on my white card stock. Then I fussy cut just the cupcake paper from 2 of the images. Next I scored the lines and accordion folded both of those cupcake paper images. After that, I glued one end to the other to make the paper longer. I colored the cupcake paper, a pinkish color and then attached each end over the base on the 3rd image. then I attached the center area to the base and now the cupcake paper looks like a real cupcake base.
Next to make the icing look somewhat realistic, I used a snow marker, and heated it and it puffed up and looks like icing - sort of.
After that I attached flat back pink pearls in the circle areas. For the candle I cut one out and then cut a slit in the top of the cupcake and slid it in. I colored the flame and added glitter to add a little sparkle.
So here is the cupcake ready for the card.
Here is the cupcake on the card.
I used some pastel papers to make the card background
And here is a close up of the cupcake on the finished card.
This image was a lot of fun to use and will be a cute Happy Birthday card for a child (or even a grown-up) I think!!
