An Exciting News!!! My first ever prize has arrived today. I am so happy and thrilled to see the mail:)). This was a sponsor "Times Flies" stamp from Sheena Douglass. Thanks for her generosity and all the DT members of "Craft All Day" to pick up my cards on Handmade Flowers challenge.
Now onto my project. There was a theme given at Beyond Grey Challenges to create a card with something sweet on it + at least three colours from this palette:
Here is my take on the card. Summers are really nice. Everyone loves to eat ice-creams, cupcakes, sweet candies etc. So, I have designed a 3 D cupcake card which has a slider greeting attached with a candy.......cute I think! If you pull the candy a message appears......I really like the finished project with inside too!!!
I fold the Cream colour Pearl CS in accordion style so that the candy layer hidden inside and not showing. I used an oval die-cut nestabilities at the centre panel of the fold. Attached a banner cut from the DCWV Sweet stack on a turquoise ribbon at the top most and added a bow with a rhinestone. Cupcake is a double sided sticker which I added it on a white CS. At the bottom of the cupcake, I added turquoise glitter dust and at the top I added dark pink and light pink glitter dust and rub it gently . For crystal effects, I added glitter stickles on it. I cut out 2 more cupcakes for 3D effect. At the back of the cupcake and on another cupcakes too, I used pastel chalks from scrappin-clear(turquoise+ pink). Before gluing 2 cupcakes together with adhesive pop dots, I inserted a piece of turquoise gingham ribbon so that it will hang in the centre of the oval shape die cut. I embellished with some English roses from little birdie by Itsy Bitsy and added a pearl at the centre of a big rose. Add two crystal flower buttons on both the side of the oval shape. Applying border and corner golden stickers which enhances the look of any project.
From inside: at both of the panels I layered DCWV designer paper. I left some gap while pasting the DP at the top of the last panel. Then, I popped up the third cupcake at the centre using glitter at the top. And at the bottom, I added some swirls and applied glitter dust . Then I cut out two sentiments from the sweet stack and edged them too.
Now onto that cute candy:
I used a broom stick. On the top of the stick I attached a stocking circle filled with foam and sew it. then I cut a glittered candy from sweet stack and glued it on that circle. And attached purple pearls around it. I attached a loop at the backside of the candy and covered the whole stick using different colour threads.
I used a Spellbinder octagon die cut with a sentiment from My Little Darling Happy Birthday set using Versacolour Lagoon Blue ink and attached it on a light blue colour tag. After that I embossed the tag from left top and bottom side using Cuttlebug Flowers folder set. Then highlighted it with promarkers and using rhinestones jewels on it and tied with ribbon along with a candy stick. I left it standing up at the top flap of DP. It can be easily pulled out from the card or some more sweet things could be added in the flap (may be real candy)lol.
I really had fun making this sweet, yummy, delicious cupcake project card!!!
