Happy Birthday Cupcake :)

Hi Everyone,

Frame It Up 1So it is officially freezing here - because its in the minus degrees! My sinuses are frozen along with my bones! Time for some warm tea and cupcakes to warm up :) lol! Speaking of cupcakes, I made a little cupcake card and coordinating gift tag for her present using one of my favorite Taylored Expressions stamp sets: For the Love of Cupcakes :) I adore all the cupcakes and sentiments in this set and I used the frame from the New Beginnings stamp set and coordinating Frame It Up die to create the tag and used it for the image panel as well. I love this panel (love love love love it :) its big enough for a tag or for holding both sentiments and images in an A2 card :) love that :) It was hard to figure out which of the awesome sentiments to use, but i had to go with the sentiment: "Happy Birthday Cupcake" - love that!
I stamped the cupcake twice and then colored it with copics and covered the chocolate with expresso dimensionals and cut it out for both the tag and card. 


Here is a close up of the card - I added some chunky glitter to the edges of the frame and added a strip of edged punch border along the center of the frame and some glittered hearts here and there and finished it off with some bling on the bottom:


Here is a closer picture of the tag that I created using the frame and the die and the same sentiments and cupcake. I added a little eyelet to the top to tie the ribbon in the gift:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: October Afternoon
StampsFor the Love of Cupcakes and New Beginnings 
Inks: Cottage Ivy and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
Accessories: heart punch, eyelets, chunky glitter, MS edge punch, rhinestones, liquid pearls, expresso liquid pearls, may arts ribbon

I had a fun time creating this little coordinating  gift set and the best part was seeing my friend open the gift and reading her tag :)
