Making a masculine cupcake card

Have you seen the cupcake stamp set and punch duo in the new mini catty? Aren’t they just the perfect pair for creating easy birthday cards?

But can a cupcake be used for a masculine card? I think so. How about you?

I always enjoy using a chocolate and vanilla combo, whether I’m designing for men or women, but I think that using it here and keeping the layout clean and simple, helps to give that more masculine feel to the card.

Recipe
Stamp sets: Create a Cupcake (W121915 or C121982)
Cardstock: Chococlate Chip (108599), Crumb Cake (121685), Very Vanilla (106550)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (100908)
Punches: Cupcake Builder (121807)

The card blank is a square of Chocolate Chip, matted with Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake card. A cupcake case was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Very Vanilla card, punched out with the Cupcake and popped up on a dimensional on the card front. Cupcake frosting was punched from Very Vanilla card and sprinkles were stamped in Chocolate Chip ink. A cherry was punched from Chocolate Chip card and adhered direct to the top of the frosting which was then popped up on a dimensional on the card front. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip card onto a strip of Very Vanilla. This strip was trimmed with a horizontal “V” at each end and curled over a bone folder to create the banner before adhering each end a little way in on the card front to retain the shaping.
