My friend Lesley gave me such a fab Christmas gift - it was a mixing bowl, some gorgeous flowery doilies and a load of assorted cake toppings and sprinkles. She'd put everything inside the mixing bowl, put it inside snowflake patterned cellophane and tied it up with a big silver bow. I kept having a crafty feel of the present before Christmas but I would never have guessed what was inside the wrapping paper!
I thought it only fitting that I used cupcake images to make Lesley a thank you card! I started off by making a Raspberry Ripple easel card. I then stamped the cupcakes onto watercolour paper, coloured them with inks and a wet paintbrush and fussy cut them out. I then added glitter, Glossy Accents and white gel pen highlights to embellish the cakes. I popped two cakes up onto a Whisper White die cut doily and popped another cake up onto the dotty embossed Crumb Cake panel to act as the stop for the easel. I used a Fishtail Flag die for the sentiment and added punched flowers with jewel centres.
Here's a close up of the 2 cupcakes on the doily.
I glued a white panel to the bottom of the card and added a stamped and die cut sentiment label.
Here's the envelope flap with another stamped and fussy cut cupcake and I couldn't resist adding the naughty but very nice sentiment!
