I'm back again with another cupcake card. I think I love cupcakes almost as much as flowers....eating them and using them on cards! It seems like every time I make a birthday card, I want to put a cupcake on it. I do try to refrain, but sometimes it just happens.
I cut several layers of the cupcake to give it some dimension. I added each layer with a foam dot, then put an extra layer of just the cherry. I put the cupcake on the card using an Action Wobble. The cupcake is from Birthday Bash and the stamp is by Studio G.
I added a little white accent to the cherry using my Sakura gel pen, then used glossy accents to make it shiny. It was a lovely, glossy cherry...almost good enough to eat.
Speaking of cherries, I love to eat them fresh, but they are sure expensive this year! Has anyone else noticed that? They were 6.99/lb. at Walmart the other day. Groceries are fairly cheap in Oklahoma, so that's way high for us! Last summer, I paid 3.00+ per pound. Ok...back to the card...
As you can see in this close up shot, I inked all the edges with brown ink. At the end, I added some bling. I've already given the card away and I'm still second guessing that decision. I can't decide whether it was too much or not. I tried twine and it looked weird, so I settled on bling.
Here's a pic of the card with the envelope. The paper is double sided and the candles are the back side of the yellow on the base of the card. I cut the envelope and card base from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2.
