Wish Big Cupcake Card

Like yesterday's post, this card was also made with the Big Shot, and will be one of the projects for January's Big Shot Club.  The Bigz XL die cuts the cupcake card, the wavy bottom holder (complete with score lines), the cherry, and a candle (not pictured).  We used the new red glimmer paper from the Stampin' Up Occasions mini catalog (which starts TODAY!) for the cherry.  The glittered paper only comes in red at this time, but it is awesome because it doesn't come off (mess-free glitter...WOOHOO!), and it's sold in a package of two 12"x12" sheets.  What a great way to add shimmer to your die-cut and punched images! We also added extra shimmer to the edge of the cupcake frosting with silver glass glitter, a treasure that originally appeared in the Holiday mini and has been carried over (with additional colors available) to the Occasions mini!  The "Wish Big" sentiment is from the Word Play set and the inside sentiment is from the Full of Life set.  The bottom holder and red inside cardstock layer were run through the paper crimper.  We wrapped a piece of Real Red 1/8" taffeta ribbon around the bottom holder.

  1. Very Clever card you two!! I really like this one. I've been eying this die for a long time, but just have never bought it. Now I'm going to have to move it up a few notches on my wish list and buy it SOON! Thanks again for the inspiration and idea!

Beach Birthday Card

We used lots of Big Shot products to create this bright beach birthday card. The background combines three embossing folders - Oh My Stars...
