Cupcake Accordion Card Using Karen Burniston's New Cupcake Add-Ons!

 Hello and Welcome! Today's card features the new Cupcake Add-Ons die set that is part of Karen Burniston's June 2023 new release. This add-on die set is for the Landscape Rectangle Accordion die set. 

This amazing die set comes with everything you need to make three cupcakes per panel, as well as the icing, cupcake wrapper and different toppings. Also included with this add-on is the dies to make the streamers!

For my card, I started by cutting out three Landscape Rectangle Accordion panels using 110lb heavy weight smooth white cardstock. From there I die cut trim to go around the panels using a birthday themed patterned paper I had in my stash. 

I die cut all the cupcake mechanisms in heavy weight black cardstock. I used black to make my cupcakes pop! I cut the wrappers in rainbow colors and cut the "icing" using a cream colored cardstock. 

With a blending brush and various colors of Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks that correspond with my wrappers, I added some dimension to them. Then I added a shine line with a white Gelly Pen. 

Then with my Copic markers, I added some shadowing to my icing. From there I added the cupcake decorations, some had sprinkles, some cherries and the ones with no extra decorations, I added some glitter gel to them. 

I set them aside to dry. Meanwhile, I cut out a small rectangle to add to the end panel for a place to sign the card. I used one of the rectangle pieces from the Tag Book Pop-Up, adding a pink border that matches the pink cupcake!
Once my cupcakes were dry, I glued them down to the black background pieces. Then I added my stamped sentiment, from MFT Sugar Coated Sentiments to the front panel of the card. 

I added green cardstock to the center panels on the first and last rectangles on this card. I also die cut several streamers in the same rainbow colors and added them to my card, added glitter gel to them as well. I had to trim the first and last panels to add the cupcakes to them and I tried to trim along the edge of the cupcakes so it looked better. 
I just love how this card turned out. It's such a neat surprise for the recipient. Thank you so much for stopping by and as always Happy Crafting! Be sure to check out the entire new release at
