Cupcake fun

Happy New Year Everyone!  I've finally had a little time to play with my new cupcake punch.  Wow! Is it ever fun! -- and very versatile.  I made birthday, Valentine's, and friendship cards -- all using the same basic template.  I can see a darling little girl (or boy's) birthday party invitation using this punch and a die cut number as an embellishment. The options are endless!

This is a pretty simple card -- the only real technique shown here is making a scallop square using the scallop trim corner and scallop trim border punches.  Start with a square measuring 3 1/4 x 3 1/4".  Punch all four corners with the scallop trim corner punch, then punch all four sides using the border punch -- lining it up with the pattern already created with the corner punch.

Another exciting feature of the Valentines card shown below, is the new red glimmer paper (see the punched heart on the cupcake) from the Occasions Mini -- it is fabulous -- AND the glitter doesn't rub off even though it's super sparkly.  LOVE this stuff!  I hope they make more colors of it!
