Cupcake Card

I needed to may my The Cuttlebug Spot Design Team card for this week and I needed to make my Brother-in-Law a birthday I combined the "challenge" for both... My BIL is not into your typical things so I had no idea how to make it I went with the cupcake from Home Decor and used my new Celtic Knots Cuttlebug folder...I thought it turned out pretty good until my dear BIL got it and turned it in all directions...look confused... never even knew that I made it...and still doesn't know its a cupcake.... can we say store bought on the 99 cent rack next year!!! Hope you like it some... hugs, Jeannie
Home Decor
Cupcake cut @ 3 inches.
I cut it once in brown on shadow... once in blue on shadow which I then trimmed the icing off of.. On regular cut I cut twice in the striped paper and 3 more times in brown.
Celtic Knots Embossing Folder
I embossed a brown piece of cardstock and a blue piece of cardstock.. I trimmed 1/2 inch off of each side and the top and the bottom... so that I would have a piece that lined up with the pattern and have a border around it of the next color.
I used a gold pen to draw inside of the lines of the embossed image.
Lots of Brown Ink
Lots of pop-dots!!

Jeannie, I think this is a wonderful 'guy' card ... appropriate for a birthday, but still masculine. So sorry about your BIL's less than enthusiastic reaction ... some just don't appreciate art.

I love your new embossing folder! What a gorgeous card! I'm sorry that your BIL's reaction was less than enthusiastic. I would have been thrilled to get such a lovely card!

I'm sorry, but men just don't get it. This is gorgeous! I love what you did with the folder. I've been looking at it for awhile and keep thinking how big and flat it looks (not that I don't like the design, but you know me and layers. This is a perfect solution! Don't be surprised if you see something similar on my blog in the near future. :) xxD
