I have had this Sizzix cupcake for for a while now, and I had a stroke of inspiration when I saw Doodlebug’s Hey Cupcake enamel sprinkles in my local craft supply store. I knew I had to pull out this die set to make a card with these cute sprinkles!
The construction of the cupcake was super easy – I used 110lb card-stock for the base, cut just above the score line to allow a top folding card base.
Using foam tape under the cupcake base and ‘icing’ layers gave it just the right pop of dimension; and a C00 Coptic marker to lightly add in some shading to create more dimension in the icing.
A white gel pen & crystal effects added a perfect gloss on the cherry – glued flat to the icing layer.
As soon as I saw Lawn Fawn’s puffy cloud die, I knew it would be perfect to pair with the Critters Ever After set. The stand alone clouds from Spring Showers die set filled out the card perfectly too.
I cut a piece of 100lb white card stock to 4bar notecard (3.5 x5), then a piece of tide pool from the Pint-sized Patterns: Beachside paper petite (6×6) collection.
The unicorn, from the Critters Ever After set was colored with Spectrum Noir markers: LY1 – CT1, CR2 – PP2, IB1 – OB2. To add a little bit of sparkle, I used the silve wink of stella glitter pen – after all, it isn’t a unicorn without a little bit of sparkle right?!
Here is the card – I hope you like it! As always, your comments are welcome and appreciated:
