A Cupcake a Day...


Good morning!  I wanted to share a card with you that I made for a friend who has a dream to start her own cupcake business.  I thought that this C-U-T-E cupcake stamp from PTI would be the perfect choice and I love how it turned out!


I used a piece of patterned paper to make the wrapper part of the image.  I stamped the cupcake base on the cardstock and cut it out (I know, I don't do THAT very often!).  To make the top of the cupcake, I colored the image with my colored pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits (OMS).  This has probably become my favoirte way to color in images (I only like to "color" every once in a while).  I tried to attach glitter to the top image but I didn't use enough glue and it kept falling off (which is why you can see little stray pieces on the white cardstock...I didn't get them all brushed off before I took this photo) so I got out my pink Stickles and I love how that turned out!

 

The green cardstock that I embossed the polka dots on is from Coordinations and the inside of the cardstock has a monochromatic color that matches the outside color.  So, I took my sanding block and sanded off part of the top color and that allowed the lighter green to show through and pop those dots out even more!  Isn't that cool!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you liked the card!
