Punchy Birthday Card

Supplies: Stamps: Create a Cupcake Paper: kraft, cherry cobbler, pear pizzazz, white, Jillibean Soup: Chilled Strawberry Soup, DCWV spring self adhesive paper pack Ink: crumb cake, antique linen distress ink Accessories: SU: cupcake punch, oval punch, scalloped oval punch, square lattice embossing folder, top note die cut, itty bitty punches, filigree brads Nestabilities classic ovals and scallop ovals, leftover Christmas ribbon, self adhesive gems

I used a ton of punches on this card! How fun, and what a mess I made on my desk. This was going to be a cupcake card, but when I went to punch a piece of the cupcake out of a scrap of cherry cobbler that I had used the die cut top note with, I thought that it would be super cute to have that as a "cloth" liner to a basket that I have seen people making with the cupcake punch! Maybe somebody already discovered this and if they have kudos to them! But I was all about the basket then! I embossed the bottom with the square lattice folder to create the basket weave texture, and used the oval punch to make some stems. The flowers were also punched using the itty bitty punches. I was going to use a border punch, but thought the top note would tie it all together. Thanks so much for stopping by!
