A Sweet Card

Boy, we have had quite a summer already! We have been on trips the past three weekends. This is the first weekend we have been home all summer. I have a card to share with you that I made last night! Mr. Mojo was visiting my house- wahoo! I needed to make a card for my little friend Kaitlyn who is turning 9 next week. Her favorite colors are pink and green, so I made a very texture-happy card to mail to her.

This card is for the Paper Bakery Kits challenge to use a handmade embellishment on a project. This also fits the Frosted Design challenge which is the same challenge as PBK's! I made the cupcake all myself! I used my "Sweet Treats" Cricut cartridge to cut out the "cup" part of the cupcake. Then, I put strips of washi tape on it to dress the wrapper up a bit. I used a Cosmo Cricket Gluber and some ribbon for the "cake" part, and then topped the whole thing off with some twine and a button. I was very pleased with the outcome! Looks playful enough for a 9-year-old. :)



Thanks for visiting!

I love your cupcake card! The ribbons for icing the pretty green and pink is soooo sweet! The swiss dot background really shows off your flower petals. Great job! I would say Mr Mojo really did his job! lol
