The Great Cupcake!

Do you like to celebrate with cake?  Cupcakes are so popular and they're just perfect for celebrating any occasion from birthday's to bar mitzvah's.  Today's card gives honor to the great cupcake!

I started by cutting two mattes from Neenah 110lb Solar White Card Stock using Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles.  This card stock is heavy duty, sturdy, just perfect for tags, die cutting and matting.  I added foam tape between the top and bottom mattes to give the frame dimension. 

I backed the frame using this fun polka dotted paper from Elizabeth Craft Designs Thinking About - Rio De Janeiro.  There are 3 packs of this paper just filled with oodles of different colors.  They're all so yummy!

I cut two frames using the stitched rectangles, by taping the two largest rectangles together and running them through my die cutting machine and gluing them together for more depth, and adhered them to the front of the matte.

Next I cut the Elizabeth Craft Designs Cupcakes out of white card stock and Soft Sky Soft Finish Card Stock.  I added some detail to the cupcake liner using Broken China Distress Oxide Ink.  I colored the cherry using Copics and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.  I also cut the Celebrate die out of the same Soft Sky Soft Finish Card stock and blended the bottom with distress ink giving it an ombre effect.

The finished masterpiece!  A cupcake worthy of framing.  ;0)

I'm so thankful you stopped by today!  Blessings~ Birgit

It's so hard to get framing right these days with such a variety of sizes out there from every manufacturer, so I really appreciate your showing the frames on your card and what works well together. The cupcake is delicious looking. Making me hungry for some sweets and it's not even 10am yet. Beautifully done.

I'm sorry that I made a wet spot on the front of your cupcake card from licking my monitor, Birgit! You made it look so delicious and REAL!! And framing it this way, to give it the honor it deserves, is genius!! Thank you for showing the how-to!! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell
