Hello Crafters! Can you believe two posts in two days? I am trying to live up to my goals to be more active, lol. I saw yesterday that Mary from Cardz TV has a cupcake challenge this week. I love cupcakes - to eat and to use in card making! So I went home last night and after I put the baby to bed I put the card together. I designed it on my gypsy on my way home from work to save time. Here it is:
Recipe: Base is chocolate chip by Stampin Up cut to a 4" by 9" card (to fit a business envelope). Matte is cut to 3.75" by 8.75" and it is a light yellow with darker yellow circles. The cake plate is cut at 2", all cupcakes measure 2.5". I ran the brown frosting pieces through my cuttlebug using the divine swirl folder and with the blue I used Swiss dots. I faux stitched the hearts, accented the embossed area with a white gel pen and added stardust stickles (my absolute favorite). I also used broken china distressed stickles on the cake plate rim. I inked around the wrappers of the cupcakes so they could stand out and chalked the little lines as well. Last but not least, I used epoxy stickers from K & Company to spell out Sweet.
I love this card. It was so much fun to make using all the little tricks to make it pop. I hope you like it. I also hope you try your hand at making any type of project as long as it uses a cupcake and entering Mary's challenge. It can be stamped or cut so this isn't limited to just us cricut users. Have a great day! Thank you in advance if you leave a comment ;-)!
