I had a ball with today’s project! I added in a Cupcake Stand Die-namics so I had many fun elements to play with :)

I started with the card, which has a Kraft card stock base. Then, using Confetti Background, I stamped up some paper using Berrylicious ink, Chocolate Brown ink, Orange Fizz ink, and Safety Orange ink. I popped that up on foam then proceeded to make my cake. The “Time to Celebrate” sentiment is just slightly curved and just fits on the larger Dimensional Banners Die-namics. I stamped that with Chocolate Brown ink, folded on the score lines and added toothpick “poles”. The cake plate was cut from metallic silver card stock, the cake from Safety Orange card stock, the frosting from Chocolate Brown card stock, and the candles and flames from Blu Raspberry card stock and Orange Fizz card stock. I assembled the cake, “stuck” the poles in, and popped it up on the base on foam.

I made
Cupcake Stand Die-namics from Blu Raspberry card stock. It goes together like a dream!!! Here’s a close up of it.

Cupcake stands need doilies so I cut one from Sweet Tooth card stock and Decorative Doily Duo Die-namics before sitting my cupcake on top. I made a pick with another sentiment from  LLD Delicious Birthday and Sweet Tooth card stock, Orange Fizz card stock, and Blu Raspberry ink, on Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics die cuts.
