Welcome to Bake Sale Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Georgiana at CarsonsCricutCreations, you're in the right place!
If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to Carson's Cricut Creations and start at the beginning.
The theme of this blog hop is baked goods in honor of National Bake Sale Day. Be sure to visit each blog for inspiration and fun BLOG CANDY too.
Here are the items I'll be made for you! :) First is a cupcake shaped card with gift card holder, next is a cupcake wrapper and third is the cupcake topper.
As you can see I used the same 12" x 12" sheet of paper for all the projects:
Monkey Around Paper Pad by K Marcella
As you can see this card looks just like a cupcake! :) It opens up to reveal an adorable gift card holder too. The most special thing about these projects is that I used Cri-kits pens to write out "Happy Birthday" (using Nate's ABCs). This card was created with Sweet Treats.
The top layer of the cupcake (the frosting layer) is DCWV glitter paper embossed with the D-Vine Swirls embossing folder.
And then the bottom
Here is the wonderful gift card holder pocket! :) I used the same black glittery Cri-kits pen to accent the front and inside of the card. Green and white craft twine adorns the front of the card.
Okay, on to the cupcake wrapper. I didn't have a cartridge that has a cupcake wrap, so I had to create one... using Gypsy Wanderings! :) WOW, was that ever a time consuming process. I went ahead a made a bottom too, feel free to leave it out if you'd like to. Again, I drew the words in with a Cri-Kit pen before I cut the wrapper out.
Here are the cupcake wrapper and topper together. My hubby was not upset that I had to make some cupcakes to take these pictures! :) Again, I drew on the details for the topper and them cut and assembled it on a coffee stir stick.
Here are all the Gypsy files for these projects:
