Quick Cupcake Card


Do you need to make a birthday card in a hurry?  Here is a quick one for you!  This was very easy to make, and it shows off these cute papers I got from a 6 x 6 Simple Stories paper pack.  The card is a 4 1/4" square, so it fits into an A2 size envelope.  The brown layer is a 4" square, and the patterned layer is a 3 3/4" square.


This adorable cupcake is from Cricut American Alphabet, one of the cartridges that came with my Cricut Expression 2 Anniversary Edition.  I cut it at 3 1/2" and topped it with a button and twine.

Recipe:

Papertrey Ink Kraft & Dark Chocolate Cardstock
Simple Stories "Happy Day" Patterned Paper
Papertrey Ink "Mega Mixed Messages" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate Ink
Papertrey Ink Vintage Button & Rustic Jute Button Twine
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink
