Frosted Cupcake Thank You Card

Here is another thank you card that I made using a pre-made blank card as a base.  This pretty card comes in a package of 20 cards with envelopes.  You can find many attractive blank card packs like this at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  It is simple work to 'cook up' cupcake cards with the use of Avery Elle's cupcake clear stamp set.  I paper pieced the cupcake liner and frosted the cupcake with Bo Bunny pearlescent paint in tubes which are sold at BFC and come in many pastel colors.  Before the paint dried I sprinkled on glitter and tiny beads.  Stamping the cupcake top with dark brown ink will make it look more realistic.  A bamboo skewer is a good tool for pushing the 'frosting' in the swirl pattern. I stamped the words on a hand-cut banner with white ink and heat embossed it with white opaque detail powder. I purchase both the stamp set and card pack from HM Ben Franklin Crafts because I know they will be useful for many future cards.  Enjoy a creative life!

Cute card Lynn! Love that set of pre-made cards. Adding your own touch to the card makes it a very sweet personalized card. Thanks for sharing that technique with the "frosting" I always love to read how other crafters get that finished look to their projects.
