Sweet Cupcake Card

Friday, August 3, 2012

Yummy swirled frosting and sparkling chocolate sprinkles. This cupcake’s completely fat free, calorie free and you can easily send it through the mail!

The cupcake card is one of the 700 shapes on the new Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge. I cut the base from Colonial White cardstock and used the new Colonial White Rosette Ribbon for the “frosting”.

Using a stylus, I dry-embossed lines on the cupcake liner and inked the folds, for a little more contrast.

The patterned papers are from the La Belle Vie Paper Packet. The stamped sentiments outside and inside the card are included in the Artiste Collection. You receive three D-sized stamp sets, plus three 9x12 chipboard elements sheets. What a bargain – the stamps and chipboard are a $68.70 value!

Tresa - I just love your cupcake. So, so creative! Thank you so much for sharing. Would you be able to tell me what size you cut your cupcake?

Alexandra Ibarra said...

Hi how did you cut the ribbon? Super cute

Alexandra Ibarra said...

Hi super cute!! How did you cut the ribbon for thd frosting using the rosettes? What settings? Thank you :)

Tresa Black said...

Hi Alexandra,
The rosettes are on a mesh ribbon backing, so I just added adhesive to the frosting portion of the card shape and layered the ribbon in horizontal stripes. I squished the layers close together, so that you can't see the backing, just the rosettes. Thanks for asking!

Alexandra Ibarra said...

Thank you for the quick response! Did you actually cut the ribbon with the cricut to make the toasters with the CTMH cartridge?

Tresa Black said...

Hi Alexandra,
I cut the card, which is shaped like the cupcake base and the frosting part too. The front of the card is just the "cake" part, but the back is the frosting and cake. The ribbon is just snipped in the proper lengths and attached to the upper part of the card. Super simple and takes less than 5 minutes to "frost" this cupcake! :)

Alexandra Ibarra said...

Hahaha I'm sorry I totally thought that you made the rossetts but I see know what you mean it's a ribbon you glued on...silly me I thought you hand made the rossetts with ribbon usin the cricut for the frosting sorry :) thanks for sharing
