A Row of Cupcakes

I finally sat down and made a few cards yesterday. This one was made to match a specific gift bag. In order to fit the 3 cupcakes on there, I made the card a somewhat strange size- I think it ended up being 7-3/8x4. Basically the two requirements I had for the size were that the 3 cupcakes would fit on the panel while leaving room for a background, and that the card would fit into that aqua envelope.

Because it ended up being such a wide card, I selected a few sentiments from Cupcake Collection that would work nicely together across the bottom of the panel.

  • Stamps: Cupcake Collection, Polka Dot Basics
  • Ink: Only Orange, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Rich Cocoa, Daffodil Delight
  • Paper: Lemon Tart, White, Cool Caribbean
  • Accessories, etc.: buttons, pop dots.
And here's the card with the gift bag. I love having homemade cards that coordinate with gift bags!


  1. WOW!!!! The gift bag company should be coordinating with your design!! Your card is a stunner!

  2. Love the colors you used on the cute!

  3. This is adorable!! I love the cupcakes in a row and how it matches your bag! I think that this is one of my favorite cards using this set!
