Ruffles and Ribbons, Oh my!


This sweet-i-licious card may look like it causes cavities, but the only effect it will have is smiles on your recipient's face!

I found this adorable pillow, and knew I needed some rufflies, too!

To create this runched-ribbon effect:

  1. Cover a circle of cardstock in SNAIL. Helpful Hint: The Circle Scissor Plus (112530) cuts circles with ease! Best when used with the Glass Mat (112531).
  2. "Mush" gathered ribbon into the glue, start at the base of the cupcake and working your way to the other side. When you finish one row, simply turn the corner and work your way back across the next row until you've covered your cupcake.
  3. Tuck the ends of the ribbon around to the back side of the cupcake and adhere to the back.
To create the cupcake base:
  1. Use the scallop edge punch to scallop one side of chocolate chip card stock
  2. Use your paper trimmer and scoring blade to score lines from the base to the "notches" between each scallop. To enhance the score lines, sponge on chocolate chip ink.
  3. Use your paper trimmer to cut the chocolate chip cardstock at an angle.
Et Voila! A delicious birthday card your friends and family would love to receive!
