Hello fellow crafters! Grace Baxter here, and I am happy to share my latest card design. I call this one my Cupcake Shoppe birthday card.

Cupcakes and birthdays naturally go together. But how about an entire Cupcake SHOPPE!

Rather than make a flat card front, I decided to add a sweet awning to the shoppe window.

I had in mind a particular striped paper for the awning. This one reminds me of the striped canvas sling lawn chairs my Dad used to enjoy. And this striped paper looks exactly like that style.

I might just have to make a few of these to have on hand. Once I figured out the best way to make the awning, the rest was easy!


For the inside verse, I used one of my own poems. This one is a general verse that works for either male or female recipients. (Click the top picture collage for details.)

Great card - you're right about that awning. It evokes a LOT of memories - lawn chairs, summertime. Thanks for showing us how to put it together.
