Cupcake Card

I made this card today for a work colleague's daughter's 3rd birthday...which was last Friday...ooops!! Oh well, better late than never!

I made the card from a KNK cutting file that my very clever friend Helen created some time ago. There are 4 sections to the card: the cupcake 'paper' case base card, 'paper' case DP, icing top and a small cupcake shaped card that adheres to the back. I used CM pink CS from my stash for all the base pieces, DP from my stash for the cupcake 'paper' case (which has been put through a crimper to look like the real thing but doesn't show up well in the photo) and JAC paper covered with AED glitter for the iced top.

The cute little girl is Abby from Michelle Perkett's Etsy shop. She has a cute little dog with her which I used on the 60th birthday card I made in THIS post. They are called Abby and Walter and one day I will actually use them both together in a project lol!! I printed Abby onto a piece of Schizzi Sketching paper by Fabriano and coloured with pencils and OMS. She has been highlighted with a little glitter pen and some Frosted Lace Stickles for her frills. I cut her out and popped her up on foam dots.

Michelle has some seriously cute new designs at her PCP and CDAC groups that she has offered as freebies for the members of her groups. If you join either of her groups you will be able to grab them while they're available :) Michelle's images are very addictive...and beautiful to hop on over and join in the fun!
