Hi, it’s Dorlene and I’m super excited to work on another project using Printable Cuttable Creatables SVGs. I love this Birthday Hat Cupcake SVG and knew I could make a lot of birthday projects with it.
For this post, I decided to make a fun fold card – an easel shaker card to be exact. I thought this easel design would really showcase this cute cupcake, especially with some shaker bling.
Cutting & Scoring dimensions are:
Card Base: 4.25 x 11″ scored at 5.5″ and 8.25″
Card Front: 4.25 x 5.5″
Patterned Paper: 4×5.25″
Two Window Sheets (I used a transparency): 4×5.25″
Since I decided this was also going to be a shaker card, I needed a frame to put the shaker bits in. In Design Space, I created the frame by stacking two different-sized rectangles on top of each other – one at 4” x 5.25” and the second at 3.25” x 4.5” – I center-aligned them & then sliced them to make a frame.
Once I was done with the frame, I added the cupcake image to the canvas. I removed the base on the bottom of the image and adjusted the cupcake size to fit inside the frame. You can see that I moved it over to the right of the frame and made sure that it covered a portion of all four sides.
The cupcake ends up being a little smaller than 3×5″. Add an offset to the cupcake image; move the cupcake image to the side & then select only the frame & offset and weld them together. This will give the cupcake a stronger base to sit on, plus gives it a more polished look with a border.
Once all the pieces are cut, I always place them together before adding adhesive. Believe me, this is good advice!
Continue to make the card front into a shaker card and once that is complete, add it to the card front.
When making an easel card, you need to add foam adhesive to the tab on the bottom so it will stop the card front from sliding. I decided to add the birthday greeting on the tab instead of on the card front.
I am so happy with the final result. This is super cute and perfect for all birthdays.
