Cupcakes!



Not the kind you can eat, but just as delicious. These cards turned out so cute. I wish I knew how to take better pictures. I got the best compliment when my daughter entered the craft room and said, "MOM! Those look like real cupcakes." Mission accomplished. I chalked the cupcake top to give it more dimension. I used a crimping tool to give the cupcake wrapper a more realistic look. I did shrink the top a bit so the whole card would fit into a regular sized envelope. Hey I'm making all my Christmas cards this year... I don't want to have to start making envelops too.

I got the templates to make this card from Linsey Rickett's "Outside the Lines" blog. I did alter them to suit my needs, but it was a great jumping off spot.
