Season of Sweetness Cupcake



Good Monday Morning Peeps!!! Hope you all had a great weekend, I know I did! It is turning cooler here and it feels like Winter is just around the corner.

Today I am sharing a Cupcake card I made for the this week's Challenge. Challenge #96, So Sweet. Make a card with something sweet on it.

How about the card is something sweet? I used a template I found online HERE. I could not get the template to print correctly but did get enough of it to come out to be able to get the basic idea. I used some very vanilla card stock for my base. I didn't originally plan on doing a Christmas Cupcake but when I was looking through my DSP to find some to use I came across the Jolly Holiday pack and I haven't used much of it yet so I thought I would give it a try.

I got the basic outline of the cupcake from the template and then I just drew in the dividing line between the bottom and the icing. I used my crimper and some of the DS paper for the bottom. I then used another piece of the DS paper for the top. I cut it out and added it to the card base with some foam tape. I sponged the edges of the top with cherry cobbler and the base with old olive ink.




I made the Holly Leaves with my large oval punch. I punched out three ovals with old olive card stock and then use my slit punch to punch out the edges and bring the end to a point. I sponged the edges with old olive ink and used my stylus to add the lines in the leaves. I used three glimmer brads for the holly berries. I snipped off the back of the brads and added them to the leaves with glue from my glue gun. I then added the holly and berries to my card with some foam tape. The sentiment on the card some from the Merry Crittermas stamp set and I stamped it with cherry cobbler ink ont very vanilla card stock and cut and curled it into a flag. I then tied a very vanilla satin ribbon around the base and made the bow.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
