Mimi's Cupcake

I picked up a few cute stamps at Hobby Lobby a couple days ago. I just thought the little "Mimi" girl was so cute!
Materials needed:
Sweet Thing stamp by Penny Black
Mimi in Paris stamp set by Penny Black
Melon Mambo card stock 2 3/4 x 3" & 4 1/4 x 5 1/2", 1 1/4 x 1 x 1 1/2"
Blue Dot patterned paper from Quick Cards Magazine 4 x 5 1/4"
International Bazaar patterned paper SU 3 1/2 x 4 1/2"
White card stock
Eyelet Border Punch SU
Corner Rounder punch
Watercolor pencils
Blender pen
Brights Collections Buttons
Floss or thread
Glue dots
Early Espresso ink

1. Use the Eyelet Border punch to create the border on one short side of the green patterned paper.
2. Adhere the blue dot paper to the Melon Mambo card stock. Adhere the green patterned paper on top of the blue dot paper.
3. Round each of the corners on the 2 3/4 x 3" Melon Mambo card stock. Adhere it on top of the green patterned paper about 1/2" above the top edge of the card.
4. Stamp Mimi on white card stock with Early Espresso or Basic Black ink. Use the watercolor pencils and the blender pen to color the stamped image. Cut it out around the edge of the stamped image. Adhere it to the center of the Melon Mambo card stock.
5. Round the corners on the smallest piece of Melon Mambo card stock. Stamp "for you" from the Mimi in Paris stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the Melon Mambo card stock. Adhere it to the bottom right hand corner of the card, over the eyelet border.
6. Thread floss or thread through the eyes of the button and tie. Use glue dots to adhere the button to the top right of the greeting square.
7. Adhere the card front to a card base and you are ready to send Mimi's cupcake to someone special.
