If you don’t want to hand letter your card, use a program on your computer to make it. Using your card stock, print out the card approximately to 6” x 9” and fold in half. Your finished card will by 4.5” x 6”.
Determine a size for the cupcake based on the card size and placement of the lettering. Draw a cupcake on a piece of paper and cut it out. Place the template on top of the piece of felt and trace around all sides then cut cupcake out.
Add your first color of buttons to make the cupcake liner by placing the natural buttons down on the felt where you want them. Take care to cover any spaces. Use the needle and thread and sew the buttons on to the felt.
Place the red buttons down next and sew. For the icing, place the white buttons down and sew onto the felt. Don’t forget to add a cherry on top with a red button! You can use a black or brown pen to color the felt stem if you like.
For some of the buttons, we used a different stitch to sew them onto the felt. You can also change the color of your thread for a different look.
Glue the pin back on to the back of the cupcake.
Attach the cupcake to the front of the card by carefully pushing the pin in then out again and clip. Your handmade card is complete!
