Here is what I came up with! It is a card and a special birthday girl pin all in one! The card measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and the colors I used were Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and of course some sparkle! The "swirls" on the card base were stamped in Pretty in Pink on to the Whisper White card stock using the Priceless Stamp set.
I die cut the cupcake using the Big Bold Cupcakes Sizzlits die a few times with the appropriate color card stocks and then glued the layers together to make the cupcake a little stiffer and sturdier, since it is going to a 6 year old! :) I embossed the "frosting" with a clear and dazzling diamonds embossing powder mix to give it a little sparkle and interest. The 6 on top was die cut using the Big Shot and the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I added a Melon Mambo bow around the base of the cupcake and a pin to the back, so she can wear it ALL day, and the pin was done! Here is a picture of just the cupcake.
Here is what the card looks like when it is open. You can see that the cupcake pin comes off the card base easily.
Thanks for looking!
and I hope to see you over at the Stampin' Celebration blog soon!
