I wanted to make a fun birthday card for my younger sister. She’s younger by two years.
Anyway, we’ve always been close. As kids, we’d ride the school bus together, we took piano lessons together, and my parents made us share a bedroom.
As adults, we still do things together. We get our haircuts together, we hang-out together, and we have a trip coming up…together (obviously).
We live less than 3 miles from each other and we watch the same exact shows. I was her maid of honor at her wedding and I’m the godmother to her daughter. I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m lucky that we are so close.
And for that reason, I can’t go a year without celebrating her (she is awesome). So, for this birthday I decided to make her a cupcake with sprinkles. Happy birthday sister!
Then I used this watercolor brush to paint in the cupcake liner.
For the next part, I used my clear glue and covered the frosting portion of the cupcake.
Then I started sprinkling these sprinkles until the frosting portion was fully covered. Just a side note, don’t eat the sprinkles. Also, don’t mess with the sprinkles as they dry. The colors will rub off the sprinkle and create a big blob of color.
I also added a lime green brad for more color.
Last, I placed a green chevron colored cardstock to the top of the card followed by the cupcake cardstock. I stuck the happy birthday circle to the bottom of the card with a foam square (similar).
The envelope was made with this envelope punch board (not shown).
