Having only ever eaten Cupcakes I couldn't resist using the Cupcake Card Template from this weeks sponsor the Cutting Cafe. As well as this delicious template we also had a choice of a number of images from their Fun with Valentine's Day Digital Collection to help create our project.
|Paper - Stampin' Up!, Digi Images - The Cutting Cafe Cupcake Template and Fun with Valentines Day|
Other: Ribbon - SU, Embossing Folders, Embossing Powder, Glitter, Glossy Accents.
The Cupcake Template by the Cutting Cafe had every aspect covered including those delicious looking sprinkles and cherry. I used my frosting mix (Dazzling Diamonds mixed with Clear Embossing Powder) to frost the cupcake before adding extra dimension with my embossing folders. I also embossed the cupcake paper liner for added dimension and sponged colour over this ever so lightly.
I had great fun making this card as it was sorta like baking a cupcake, as you had to put all the layers together and then ice or embellish in this case. To finish I added the ribbon and then the sentiment and heart border which are both from the Cutting Cafe's Fun with Valentine's Day Collection.
This is only the second time I have worked with Digital images and I have to say I enjoyed making a hybrid card with them and I found the PDF format super easy to use and work with. I guess the only thing left for me now is to ask who wants a Cupcake? or more importantly who is up to the Challenge and wants to Party. I hope to see you join in all the fun with us at Party Time Tuesday's.
