Birthday Card ~ Manly (post #3)

I decided to play a little outside the "pile on the sweetness" challenge by using this sweet little cupcake cut. lol.
I wanted to make this card a manly one so I found these pattern papers in my stash and thought they went perfectly together.
I used the negative Silhouette cupcake cuts to create the frame then stamped it up with ink to match the paper.
I cut the negative cupcake frosting using the star pattern paper.
I then embossed the cupcake wrapper with a manly folder.
I topped my card off with a birthday banner and sponged edges.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card frame 5.25 x 4 in.
*Card front cut at 5 x 3.75 in with the Silhouette Cupcake with decorations #47375 cut inside it.
*Sponged then decorated inside negative Silhouette Cupcake with decorations #47375 cut.
*Sentiment stamps from the Happy Thoughts stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Banner from the Flag It Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Cupcake wrapper embossed using a folder from the Sizzix Diamond Plate &Riveted Metal Set.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*CTMH Goldrush stamp pad.
*Foam tape for dimension.
May your day always be filled with love.
