Craft a Paper Cupcake Birthday Card

Craft a Paper Cupcake Happy Birthday Card with Delicata Ink and Amplify Texture

What a better way to wish someone Happy Birthday than with a card in the shape of a cupcake! Unfortunately, it is not edible. This handmade card is colored with Memento, VersaColor and Delicata and topped with Amplify in White which all come together to create a fun look and feel. See the instructions below for a step by step breakdown of how I made this lovely card.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

Print both pages of Kim’s Digi Templates free pattern from Buddley Crafts on cardstock. Cut the shapes and fold.

Step 2

Use the second page to cut a piece of corrugated paper to make the base of the cupcake.

Step 3

Use a sponge dauber to distress the top of the cupcake with Memento Desert Sand and VersaColor Pinecone. Spray with Ink Potion No 9. to blend the ink colors.

Step 4

Cut in half a spun cotton ball and color with Delicata Ruby Red.

Step 5

Use the mini pattern stamp and Delicata Ruby red to decorate the cupcake.

Step 6

Stamp a Happy Birthday message with Delicata Ruby Red and distress the edges of the paper with VersaColor Pinecone.

Step 7

Glue first the corrugated base, then the top and continue with the “cherry” using the On Point Glue.

Step 8

Use the Amplify! White to make frosting effect all over the card and use a heat gun to activate the volume. If you have never used Amplify then test on a separate piece of paper first.

Step 9

Finish the card by adding washi tape to the corrugated base, ribbon and the “happy birthday” sentiment.
