Cupcake Easel with Robin's Nest!


Hi Everyone!  As I have previously mentioned on some of my posts this month, September is a month full of birthday's for me.  This includes my own so you may say I have been in need of lots of birthday cards, hence my choice for my Robin's Nest post today.



A couple of months ago I brought my very first electronic cutting machine (Sizzix Eclips)  which has opened me up to the wonderful world of SVG Cutting Files which is what I have used today to create my card today.  The Cutting File is from Paperthreads Design


Cupcake Easel Card

The card base is cut from a piece of Pink Cardstock from my stash, whilst the layered pieces are cut from the Glitter Pink on Gold Daisies Paper from The Robin's Nest.  The glittered side making a wonderful icing and the striped reverse side I thought was perfect for emulating a cupcake wrapper.  I cut this by hand to suit as I decided not to go with the more dimensional folded wrapper which was part of this cutting file. 


The Easel Card folds fairly flat for postage!


I have assembled the card and cupcake, inking the edges of the pieces and then proceeded to embellish with a stamped sentiment from Unity Stamp Co, some paper roses, punched green leaves, and a little ribbon from my stash.  The finishing touch was lots of the Robin's Nest Dew Drops in shades of pink and clear.

I think fancy folds are always nice to celebrate a more special occasion don't you?
