Sweet As

I created the following card yesterday and finally found some time to blog it!

I used cupcakes craft concepts embossing folder on green core-dinations cardstock and sanded it back to reveal the core.

Close up of Cupcake bear

I coloured in the stamp image using copic markers and used Micro beads on the cherry and stickles glue on the icing of the cupcake.

Close up of my cupcake trinket pin and flowers

I made the cupcake pin from airdry clay and coloured it with copic markers and stickles for the sprinkles. I added some mulberry paper rosebuds, leaves and bound it together with green floral tape and added a ribbon bow.

I followed the below sketch

Here is the recipe:

Stamps used: B-0014 Sweet Bears from the soon to be released range at Hookedoncraft and
W-0001 Birthday words from Hookedoncraft
Ribbon: Mesh ribbon
Papers: From my stash
Embellishments: Mulberry paper rosebuds , Mulberry paper leaves, Little Bows, handmade cupcake trinket pin.
