Treat Yourself Cupcake Card



Hi crafters!  I have a sweet (pun included!) card for you today, very simple but elegant.  This would be a great card to send to just about any of your friends, don't you think!


























The finished dimensions are 7" x  8" in size.  All for you, Sue x

Hello Sue. It's a few hour's before breakfast and I'm already peckish and what do you do - give me a tasty cup cake sample to salivate over - thanks. But it's cute and I love it. It's such a fresh looking sample and a real fun die that I'd love to own one day. A calorie free card to put a smile on anyone's face. Love it and will watch your tutorial later. Have a lovely day whatever your doing xxx

Until now, I always felt sorry for the petite dianthus. Now I think she's cute. I like how you made Eva looks like an embossed frame, how you made confetti with the fallaway from the border, how you didn't put blue in the candle stripes but instead glittered between them and on the flame, and how well the little bits of blue work together.

It really is adorable, and I'm sure any birthday girl would be happy to follow directions and indulge in a cupcake if one presented itself. This would also be a nice way to give a gift certificate to a spa.

it's just too bad there aren't any spoons to lick.

Wishing you all a pleasant Tuesday.

Donita

Good Morning Sue. Such a lovely card today..... I have just watched the video.....sitting here with my lovely morning cuppa...... and my goodness .....you make everything look so easy.

I will certainly be having a try with that one, and I just might treat myself to the cup cake die after seeing this lovely sample. Sending best wishes to everyone this beautiful sunny morning.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
Beautiful card, the cupcake die is so cute and Ava is one of my favourites from the previous release, I had to have it and glad I did - it is even prettier in real life ! I am now looking at my other smaller dies to see if any others could be used in this way with Ava as a border.
Your candle treatment is really pretty and the inspiration to use the papers too.
Hugs

A wonderful card Sue. I'm almost tempted to make some cupcakes which I haven't done for years. Notice that I only said "ALMOST"lol.
I love watching your videos even though my sight problem makes everything blurry. I don't have a TV but I do have a large screen PC.
A word just came into my mind and the word is PERFECTION.
Hugs.

Hi Sue,
This is the only way I like cupcakes, on the cards. And this one is so cute and sweet. Love to watch your videos, there always some useful tips - the little away pieces to make little sprinkle bits for the cupcake, so simple and easy. Thank you.

Hugs from Toronto to you all and special hugs to all missing friends.

What a lovely card and the dies. It has been a lovely few weeks seeing your wonderful Christmas Launch. I have only commented on a few on here but most days I did on Facebook. This page does not always come up for me and so I did'nt want you to think I only came on for free dies.
Your videos are amazing, your dies are so good and the cards are so beautiful. I spend hours rewatching your videos from 2015 and onwards as you are so talented and the cards are beautiful
Take care Sue and thank you for sharing with us.
