Cupcakes..... a Yummy Tutorial

Pin It
I know there's a million cupcake cards etc out there but who can ever get enough of them...well now there's a million and one. Im sharing my cupcake card and pattern with you all. We made this in class on Monday and it came off a treat. before we start i want to thank you all for your well wishes concerning my uncle. He's still very weak but making progress each day and is stilll very much in all our prayers.

For this card project you will need:
Vanilla or chocolate card stock for the base card.
Vellum for the front of the base card.(cupcake wrapper)
three different colours of card stock for the icing layers.
Red card for the cherry.
Brown card for the cherry stalk.
Cuttlebug emboss folders.
Ribbon and a cute tag.
different colour inks.
Gliter and Dimensional magic.

Now you have all this lets get started. Using the pattern below cut out the base card on the fold. the embossed vellum and cut to fit the front. Emboss the three icing layers with tree different emboss patterns.

Working with the base shown as vanilla cake....attach double sided tape across the top and bottom of the card front and stick your vellum cupcake wrapper over the top. Using a brown ink and sponge, soften all the edges which will help hide the tape under the vellum and look like your cake is cooked to perfection.

Next Ink the edges of the icing layers in the colours to match, punch a 1" circle for the cherry and use the off cut of the circle punch(in brown) to help you cut a stalk, ink these two in black.

These are all our parts done now lets put it together. Lay a strip of foam tape along the top of your card frontTape down the largest icing layer paying attention to where the top of the card is.....shown here in arrows. this is the back view.

Next put another strip of foam tape on the lower part of the next icing layer so you wont see this tape showing at the back.

Do the same with the smallest icing layer.

Heres a back view of the card....the reason i show this is that if your going to make beautiful hand made cards you might as well do the best you can and make it look the neatest you nasty foam tape showing here :)

Now you will shape your cherry with an embossing tool.

and attach foam tape to the back being carefull not to let the tape show after its stuck down.
Glue down the stalk and to acent the cherry ive use a small punch peice at the base of the stalk in black.
Heres a close up

Attach the ribbon...i made a card incert to cover the ribbon and tape inside the card.

An i used these cute little bread clip dies from sizzix for the message

Clip this over the ribbon and keep in place with some foam tape.

Lastly use some kindy glitz glitter on the embossed icing and dimensional magic or crystal laquar on your cherry to give it a yummy shine.

Good enough to eat!!!!!!!!

I was looking at some crochet cupcakes on the net....well i cant read patterns so i winged this crochet cupcake out of my head with some of the funky fibers i have ....the kids laughed when they saw it and thought it was great. Next time ill do a different stitch in the base can see the stuffing........take a peep..... how yummy would this be real!!!!!! LOL

I hope you have enjoyed my cupcake card and pattern....until next post........Valita

and a last thought

My son, honey whets the appetite,
and so dose wisdom! when you enjoy becoming wise
there is hope for you! a bright future lies ahead!
Proverbs 24:14
