Handprint Cupcake Birthday Card
By Crystal Dominguez
Hola! I’m super excited and honored to be a guest designer on JustYolie
project is a fun and colorful card simple enough for even the youngest
of crafters with a little help from Mommy. I designed this card with
little crafters in mind and knew I wanted to have my youngest son help
me. He will be two next month and loves crafting!
I used the following supplies to create this cute card: Sorpresa and
Burrito paper from the Olé collection by Sabor Papel, Sabor Papel
Cutouts, solid colored cardstock, acrylic paints, E6000 Allure gloss
dimensional design paints, glitter glue, powder puff inks by Quick
Quotes, border punch by Martha Stewart, and various brings and trims
First, I cut the solid colored cardstock into a 4x4 inch square. I choose this
fun bright green color. Next, with the help from my little boy Vincent,
we painted his hand with yellow acrylic paint and made his handprint.
This will be the base for the candles and cupcake.
Then, using the dimension paints and glitter glue, I decorated the candles
and added flames to the top of each one. I wanted to keep my little
crafter involved so I let him help me by choosing the colors I used. He
enjoyed watching his handprint turn into a cupcake with candles!
To really make this handprint look like a cupcake we needed a cupcake
liner. So I made a template of what I think resembles one and then used
it to cut the liner out of the colorful flower paper, Sorpresa by Sabor
Papel. I used a pretty border punch to add some interest to the liner.
Once the handprint and candles were dry I used some pop dots to attach
the liner to the bottom of the handprint. I also added some bling to the
cupcake to represent sprinkles.
I love this flower pattern from the Sorpresa paper so I used it for the
base of my card. I cut the 12 x 12 down to 10 x 5.5 inches and folded it
in half to create the card. I used some pretty yellow trim from
Michaels to frame the green cardstock with the cupcake. It added a nice
touch. I love glitter, trims and blings!
Finally, I added the Celebrar! cutout from the Olé collection to the lower right
corner of the birthday card. Both Vincent and I are happy with the way
it all came together. I hope you've enjoyed my tutorial and I've
inspired you to craft with your little ones too!
Love and Blessings,
