Sweet Cupcakes

Not only do I love to bake and decorate cupcakes, I like to craft with them too!! I decided to make this set of birthday cards as a thank you to my cake instructor. She was great and I really learned so much. So what better thing to use for her than my cupcake stamps!! I first created this captured card case from a template I got from Papertrey Ink. I decided on a black/red/white/kraft color theme and just went for it!





Lots of stickles on the frosting!! And I love my new apron lace punch (thanks, Mom!!), I use it all the time!! And some of the cards that are going inside...





I love the Kraft color with the red. One of my new favorite combinations. I hope she likes them. Tomorrow is my last cake class so stay tuned for a new cake creation soon!!!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a GREAT project! I adore the cards... your teacher is going to love it!

Santa Clarita won't work for me... I know Chris will want to run it too, and November is still cross country season. How about Death Valley in December? hehehe!
