My title may be a bit misleading.  This does not have to be a masculine birthday card.  It just is not a “frilly” birthday card.  Plus, I tried to be more generic in the colors I chose.  I used the Hello Cupcake stamp set from Sale-A-Bration because it seems to lend the more simpler, less frilly, air about it.  You can decide for yourself though.


Hello Cupcake, 149714


Hopefully you can see the possibilities with this set even though I went with a simpler version.  Bright colors would make this a really fun and young card.  I will try that next.  Since I have been using really bright colors, I thought I would go for the more light and generic colors today.

This is a one stamp set card.  Those are great for quick , take on vacation, and beginner stampers who do not have a lot of products.  Truthfully, I love to make one set cards.  I believe it really shows the value of a set when you can make a card, or more, using only that set.





The only non-simple thing I did on this card, and actually it is a simple thing to do!!!!  I stamped the icing on the layer and then on a scrap of paper.  I cut out the one on the scrap and raised it with dimensionals to give some depth to hang over the base of the cupcake.  The sprinkles are stamped in Mossy Meadow on the Soft SeaFoam, but left uncolored.  To tie the base of Crumb Cake to the greens, I wrapped Linen Thread (One of my all time favorite go tops!) around the stamped image layer.  The bow is tied separately and attached with a glue dot.  ***Another trick I learned long ago, when I discovered how difficult it is to tie a bow on a continuous length of ribbon and have it lay properly!



  • Base is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Layer is 4 X 5 1/4
  • Layer is 2 3/4 X 4 1/8
  • White Layer is 2 5/8 X 4


Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for another fun card.  As always, the supply list is at the bottom of the post.
