Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

Happy Friday Everyone! It's the perfect day for a fast and fabulous card. The secret to creating this card in a flash is the brand new Build a Cupcake Punch. Used alone or with the adorable coordinating stamp set, Create a Cupcake, you can whip up a batch of these sweet delights in no time.

Today's delicious concoction features Sahara Sand icing over an Early Espresso cupcake wrapper, served on a bed of Poppy Parade. It's all wrapped up with Early Espresso Grosgrain ribbon and topped off with a Poppy Parade cherry. (Cheesy? Nope, no cheese on this cupcake!)

Tip: When using this punch with the stamp set, stamp an individual image and then punch. Don't try to stamp the images all at once in the layout of the punch. You'll end up wasting card stock when it doesn't align correctly.

Giveaway (aka Blog Candy)!
