I was super lucky to get the Cupcakes border punch on sale for 30% off at Spotlight this week and my sister-in-law's birthday was the perfect opportunity to give it a quick workout.Don't you just love the layers and layers of cute cupcakes?
Had heaps of fun making the candles too. The first ones were made using 3x5cm strips of patterned paper, spritzed the squares with a little water, painted on a narrow strip of glue and rolled with a wooden skewer. Then I cut some fibres with my Micro-Tip Softgrip scissors to make the wick, attaching it in place with another dob of glue.
My husband thought they were fire crackers, so I had to revise my design to make them in to tapered candles. (I can give you the details of the template I made if you are interested.)
Here is what they looked like on the card
Her birthday was yesterday and she loved her card ... think I will use this design to make some more cards, as we still have lots more before the end of the year.
The Fundamentals card base is a 5 1/2" square, and yes, the packs are available from Spotlight, as that is where I got mine.
Happy Crafting :)
