Manly cupcake...?


This card was made for the colour challenge over at Splitcoaststampers - Not Quite Navy, Sage Shadow and Kraft. It was suggested on the challenge that this was a good 'manly' colour scheme, so I thought I'd have a bash at a guy's card... I'm generally not very good at them and have to force myself to make them!

I used the cupcake from Stampin Up's Crazy for Cupcakes set. I stamped it on whisper white, and two colours of designer paper - Not Quite Navy and Kraft. I cut the whole cupcake from the NQN and then just the icing from the Kraft then paper pieced them together on the white and coloured in the candle.

I added paper pricking using my SU tool kit around the two main panels and dragged a NQN inkpad around the edges of the Kraft layers. The Sage shadow background has been run through the cuttlebug using Argyle embossing folder.

The greeting is from Circle of Friendship and I used SU's perfectly sized punches to create the layers. I added jumbo eyelets using my crop-a-dile and some blue taffeta ribbon for some texture.

Thanks for looking - any questions about Stampin Up products... just get in touch!
