Create a cupcake popcorn card



My son suddenly announced at 8pm the night before that he had been invited to a party the next day!  So no time to get a pressie but I'm sure the recipient was just as pleased with money.  However I had no pre teen boy cards.  So this is what I came up with.

Card base is Pacific Point and I stamped Borderlines, the dotty pattern along top and bottom.   For the front panel I matted Whisper White onto Old Olive. Stamped Happy Birthday from Delightful Dozen in Real Red at one side and made a feature topper for the other side.  The topper is Old Olive matted onto Pacific Point with a circle of Whisper White punched using the 1 3/4" punch.  My tub of popcorn (you knew it was popcorn, right??) is using Create a Cupcake for the bag punched out with the Cupcake Builder Punch.  And the overflowing popcorn was punched out using one of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punches in So Saffron sponged with Daffodil Delight.  I'd seen this on the internet and thought it was very clever but can't remember where.  Not sure if they used the same shape for the popcorn but I thought this looked quite close. 

Inside I just wrote "hope you have a "popping" good day!". 

Hope your weekend is going well.  We have a much brighter day today, still no snow.  Off out later so must get cracking.  Thanks for "popping" in past. x

This happens all the time in our house Aileen and I usually find myself making a card ten minutes before it is required! The popcorn is brilliant - I can see that coming in very handy! Vicky x
