Hello friends! I’m so excited to share this hog wild birthday cupcakes card with you today! This card is die cut heavy with a stenciled background, stamped cupcake wrappers, and stamped greetings. What gives this card that special touch is the multiple die cut cupcakes with a cute piggy popping up from the center! Let’s get started!

The background for my card was inked with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on smooth white cardstock in an ombre effect from dark to light, leaving the bottom of the panel white for stamping the sentiment. A Polka Dot Background Stencil was inked with the same color of ink over the background for a decorative touch.
Sentiments from the Ham It Up Stamp Set were stamped along the bottom of the panel with Simon Says Stamp Doll Pink Ink.
The Cupcake, Pinky Paper Piecing, Stacking Heart, and Scalloped Heart dies were die cut from a combination of regular cardstock and glitter cardstock.
The Cupcake wrappers were stamped with tone-on-tone ink using the Bitty Patterns Stamp Set to customize the wrappers. This gives them a patterned paper look and adds instant interest to the design.
The die cut images were adhered to the card base with tape adhesive or foam adhesive to build depth and dimension. The “glaze” on three of the cupcakes was finished with Glossy Accents and then the Coffee Tiny Bubbles were sprinkled over the top for added texture. I love the look of the tiny bubbles in the frosting!
Additional greetings from the Ham It Up Stamp Set were stamped inside the card to finish the sentiment. You could make this card work for Valentines or other occasion by simply switching up the sentiments or leaving off the birthday candles!
The card was finished with a scattering of Strawberry Ice Acrylic Hearts, Candy Hearts in Be Mine, and Hug Me.
