Another Cupcake Card

I'm so excited that the cupcake card I made last week made the Top 5 at Hope Stamps Eternal! I'm back with another DEEsign:

This week's monochromatic cupcake inspiration looks divine!

Here are the DEEtails:

1. I started off with a So Saffron card and some scraps of Whisper White. I took a strip of Whisper White cardstock and punched the edge with my Scallop Trim punch. I adhered it to my card.

2. Then I added a piece of Taffeta ribbon in Kraft and tied a fluffy bow. I can't believe that many of the Taffeta ribbons are on the Last Chance list! Make sure to check out what will be retiring and order your favorites while they last!

3. I loved the look of my "fondant flowers" from the wedding card I made a few weeks ago and I couldn't wait to make more! I used my Itty Bitty punches to punch flowers, crinkled them up a bit, then added a pearl in the center of each. I lined them up on my card, using glue dots. They look so perfectly delicious!

4. I added part of the sentiment from my Heard from the Heart stamp set. I stamped the first part in Close to Cocoa ink. I can't wait for Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) ink to come out! I stamped the middle part in VersaMark and used some white embossing powder to look a little like "frosting." I chose to leave the last part of the sentiment off.

5. Then I trimmed a little Kraft mat for my sentiment and adhered it to my card. Hope you like it!
