Food and Drink - New post at Crafty Creations Challenges

Hello and thanks for stopping in today

The Crafty Creations Challenges has started their new challenge and the theme this time is Something to Eat or Drink. This challenge is a 2 week challenge so you have time to get your creation made and submitted.We are looking forward to seeing your submission.

The sponsor for this challenge is  Fresh Brewed Designs
They have a wonderful selection of digital images to choose from. Please check them out

Since the theme is Something to Eat or Drink,
I chose to use a the Birthday Cupcake design from their great selection of images.

I had some ideas as soon as I spied this calorie free delight. 

First I printed this out 4 times on my white card stock. Then I fussy cut just the cupcake paper from 2 of the images. Next I scored the lines and accordion folded both of those cupcake paper images. After that, I glued one end to the other to make the paper longer. I colored the cupcake paper, a pinkish color and then attached each end over the base on the 3rd image. then I attached the center area to the base and now the cupcake paper looks like a real cupcake base. 

Next to make the icing look somewhat realistic, I used a snow marker, and heated it and it puffed up and looks like icing - sort of. 

After that I attached flat back pink pearls in the circle areas. For the candle I cut one out  and then cut a slit in the top of the cupcake and slid it in. I colored the flame and added glitter to add a little sparkle.

So here is the cupcake ready for the card.

Here is the cupcake on the card.
I used some pastel papers to make the card background 

And here is a close up of the cupcake on the finished card.

This image was a lot of fun to use  and will be a cute Happy Birthday card for a child (or even a grown-up) I think!!

    So clever with the cupcake base! This little beauty looks yummy! Like how you kept the background muted, to give the cake the center stage! Fun card Barb.

    That sure looks yummy! I love all the dimension you used to create your sweet delight!

    Wow! fabulous idea to put the pearls in your dimensional icing like candies! And even more terrific idea of pleating the cupcake wrapper like that! The shadow around the candle is, excuse the pun, icing on the cake! Really fantastic design, Barbara! Thanks for joining us in the {Our Crafty Corner Challenge}! Hope to see more of your pretty projects again soon!
