Crazy Ribbon Cupcake Card





Hello everyone! I have a fun card to show you today that I did for My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday challenge. The challenge is to make a birthday card using a cart that has balloons, cakes, party hats, cupcakes, etc. I used Straight From The Nest. I never realized until I really looked at it, just how many birthday cuts are on there. 
I made the card shape using Accent Essentials by welding to rectangles together and then adding the scallop borders. The background is embossed with Seeing Spots and I added diamond glitter dots to the scallops. The cupcake was cut from Straight From The Nest and I added lots of fun things to it. I didn't use the wrapper, but instead cut strips of paper and added twine to it. For the top I added Glossy Accents to the cherry and diamond glitter for the sprinkles. I also added that cool fringe and more diamond glitter to the bottom of the frosting. The banner I cut by hand, I stamped the letters, and used a white pen for the inside lines. I added more of that fun trim and wound twine around it. The mini tag was stamped and cut by hand and I added that amazing bow! How fun is that bow?! I found an awesome tutorial for it HERE.
I finished the inside by stamping the sentiments and cherry which are from Peachy Keen's With A Cherry On Top stamp set. I colored the cherry with Copic markers.
I hope you all like my card and thanks for looking! I hope you will come back on Monday because I have some super exciting news to share with all of you!  Have a great weekend!
