Cupcake Card

The Paper Variety is having a great challenge this week (ends noon eastern on Tues, Feb. 15, 2011). All you need to do to enter is create a card, layout or project that uses paper and features a cupcake! 😀 Here’s my entry:


MME Wild Asparagus Birthday Girl cardstock
American Crafts white and pink cardstock
Webster’s Pages Lullaby Lane In Due Time cardstock
Bo Bunny red button
<dmc red embroidery floss
cut up bits of solid scrap paper for the sprinkles
Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick


Helmar 450 Quick Dry Liquid Adhesive
Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac adhesive
American Crafts This to That foam dots
Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive

I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo, but the icing part of the cupcake is dimensional. I cut out the same hand drawn shape 4 times and cut out a notch for the button (cherry) in the second layer, the first rounded mound on the third layer and the fourth layer just has the bottom ridge of icing. TFL!
