If you're wondering what French Paper products were used to make this adorable cupcake card, keep on reading!
The envelope was made using Bubblegum from the Pop-Tone collection. We used scraps of paper from previous projects lying around to remain eco-friendly by recycling old to new! And what better sweet treat to top off this sweet little project than Whip Cream paper as the choice for the frosting!
Handmade Cupcake Cards Are Always the Perfect Touch
Pink is just a fun color, and it gets so much better when you add Mod-Tone Pink into the mix! The pattern and detailing of the paper bring a sweet and delicate appeal to any project you are planning next. It’s also the perfect backdrop for this handmade cupcake card. From baby shower invitations to a card just to say "I miss you!" this color is definitely a great go-to to have in your craft closet!
How to Make Cupcake Cards
- Cut out the cupcake base in your choice of paper.
- Cut out the frosting shape in another color.
- Glue both pieces to your card sheet; consider using a patterned paper in coordinating colors for the card.
- Use an Exacto knife to cut out contrasting outline colors to go over the top of the cupcake base and frosting. These pieces will provide more contrast and shape to the cupcake.
- Glue the outline pieces onto the cupcake.
- Want more flair on your cupcake? Add confetti or glitter to the frosting!
If you would also like to make an envelope for the card, choose a coordinating color or patterned paper. Fold it into a shape and size that will fit your card and glue the bottom and side flaps into place. Consider using a cupcake Cricut to punch a hole through the top flap, as we did with our envelope.
