TUTORIAL: Cupcake Card with templates

First thing you'll need to do is click on the template image below to open the true size in a new window and print.

SRM Quick Card Sticker 52015 Party
kraft colored cardstock
textured paper (may sub. patterned paper)
small brads, gems &/or buttons
medium red button
templates (provided)

paper piercer
paper crimper (optional)

Card measures approximately 4 ½”W x 5 ½”H

1. Print templates, transfer to heavier material (i.e. cardstock or chipboard) and label for future use.

2. Cut kraft colored cardstock to 6” x 12”, fold in half.

3. Lay card base template against the fold where noted and trace onto card base. Cut out leaving the fold intact.

4. Trace cupcake liner onto brown or kraft cardstock, and cupcake icing template onto textured paper.

5. Add texture to cupcake liner (kraft cardstock) using a paper-crimping tool.

6. Embellish cupcake icing with brads or buttons. I like to use a variety of sizes of brads and then adhere a red button to the top to look like a cherry.

7. Adhere liner piece to card front, then adhere the icing piece.

8. Sometimes if you don't have exact placement or you don't cut exactly on the lines, your pieces might be slightly smaller than the card base. In this case just trim excess edges that show.

9. Add {Party} sticker from SRM Quick Card Sticker Sheet 52015.

10. Embellish inside of card as desired using the remaining stickers from the Quick Card sheet.

if you have any troubles with the templates, just email me using the link under my photo over -------> in the sidebar and i can email them to you instead.
