More Cupcake Cards

Remember the above card I made to go with the Dollar General cupcake stuff?  Well, I made a whole set of little cupcake cards as part of a Mother's Day gift to a lady here whose "adopted" us as kids/grandkids.  She's told me several times "I don't want you to buy me stuff, but since you won't listen... what I'd really like is some of your homemade cards as a gift!"
I made her six little cards and included them in her Mother's Day gift bag -- she loved them!
For the above three I added candles to the top -- below you'll see strawberries. 
Supplies used:
  • Misc. paper scraps 
    • I don't think I cut up any new paper at all -- just used scraps from my paper scrap basket
  •  Paper Crimper
  • Beads
    • glued them on 3 cards for "sprinkles" on the icing
  • Glitter
  • Ribbon
  • Swirls embossing folder (Provo Craft)
  • Liquid Applique
  • Template from Inspired and Unscripted
I also included three little cupcake shaped birthday sentiments just in case she wanted to glue them in a card or two.

These are adorable!

I thought of you when I saw a cupcake-shaped die at Michaels this week. I don't even remember which machine it works in, but it reminded me of the cute cupcake stuff you've been making.

These are absolutely adorable, and perfect for birthday cards!
