I just found a blog that has a cupcake inspiration challenge every week, so you know I HAD to play! The blog is Hope Stamps Eternal and this week is Challenge #12.
Just like with the other cupcake inspiration challenge I played in, I chose to recreate the actual cupcake as closely as I could. I loved the lacy cupcake liner and the contrast of the flowers against the chocolate frosting. Here's my card:
And here's a close shot of the cupcake:
To make the cupcake, I stamped one of the images from The Greeting Farm's Susie Surprise set on Dark Chocolate cardstock with the matching ink and cut out just the top. Then I drew an appropriately sized bottom to match. I didn't use the bottom of the original image because I wanted my cupcake to have a bigger bottom. I cut the liner portion out of a paper doily I've had forever and the "cake" from some Saffron cardstock. The final touch is a Prima flower with a little pearl center.
The sentiment is from the Happy Chef set, all the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Porcelain paper pad, and I used the Doily Lace Edge punch for the border. I hope you like it and TFL!
