Polka Dot Cupcake

Good morning, Friends! I can't believe there are only a few more days until Christmas! Here we celebrate Christmas a little unconventional like - lol! We travel to Kansas to see my family at Christmas so we have to make Christmas at different times. Sunday, we celebrated with my husband's family that live around here. His parents are traveling to Kansas as I type! And since we will be traveling tomorrow, we celebrated last night and this morning. Yesterday was Nick's last day for the quarter and now we are on vacation! Today I will get my haircut, do mounds of laundry and get packed!

Today's card is one that I did with my stamp club this month. I wanted to stay away from Christmas cards so I did a birthday card. I am sure you know how much I love this cupcake set and coordinating punch! It makes super easy and cute cards! I started with a card base of Whisper White. Then I took another piece of Whisper White and ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. To this I attached a piece of designer paper from the Just Add Cake pack. Then I tied a piece of Baja Breeze 1/8" taffeta ribbon around it before adhering it to the card. I punched a scallop circle from Peach Parfait. I used my circles #2 die to cut the circle from Whisper White. These two are glued together and then popped up on the card. Then I stamped the cupcake bottom in Early Espresso onto Whisper White and the cupcake top in Peach Parfait and punched them out with the Cupcake builder punch. These are popped up onto the circle. My final touch was to punch a little flower from Baja Breeze using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. This is attached to the cupcake with a glue dot and a rhinestone is added for some bling! Cute! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
