Cupcakes and Gingham !!!



My entry this week for 2Sketches4you and the Papertake Challenge is a card I made for my friend, who adores cupcakes. The papers are all digital downloads from various sources, and the images are Magnolia Tilda and various Cupcakes, also from Magnolia.



I made a sliding tab which slips inside the heart frame, which has a full recipe for making cupcakes. I finished the inside of the card with stitched layers and a large cupcake which is suspended on a strip of acetate to give a pop up effect when the card is opened.


I also made a matching envelope to finish the card.


Would love your comments if you stop by. xx
