Anyway, I've been told (mostly by my daughter) that I'm obsessed with cupcakes. So I made this card...
This is really a 4x4 card with a 3" circle punched and stuck on the top. Makes it interesting...Plus, it will still fit in a "standard" envelope.
I made the top of the cupcake with Close To My Heart's Scallop Punch, then I trimmed the bottom off. The cupcake liner is made with a crimper. Very easy!
The most interesting part of the card is the glass beads that I stuck on top of the "frosting." First I put Liquid Glass all over the "frosting," as an adhesive and smeared it around with my finger. Then I sprinkled the small size glass beads on top of that. It's a little slow drying, but I love the look!
|I used Martha Stewart Glass Beads.|
TIP: To stick the button on top - I made a little adhesive 'sandwich.' I wanted to pop the button up, so it wouldn't be below the frosting, but I knew the foam mounting tape wouldn't properly hold the button. So I made a Glue Dot - Foam Mounting Tape - Glue Dot 'sandwich' below the button. Worked perfectly!
And Kitty says:"Don't bother me, Can't you see I'm trying to get some rest!?"
Why do they always have to sleep on your stuff? -- like computer bags, gym bags, pillows...
