This cupcake image was perfect for a topper card (I think that's what they're called) and this is the first time I've used this layout. A large image, like the cupcake, is the perfect size and shape for this type of card. And how about the saying? Isn't that too funny?
My cupcake was stamped in Stazon and colored with SU! markers. I attempted a bit of shading on the cupcake wrapper, which is more obvious in person and small highlights were added to the cherries with my white gel pen. I don't have a large scalloped circle punch, which I would have preferred for the layer under the cupcake but using my SU! cutting system worked just fine. I also added some tiny flowers from one of the new Papertreyink "Borders..." stamp set. The middle of each flower has been pierced as well. The patterned background papers are from Basic Gray. I created a solid scalloped piece, to join my two patterend papers together, by using SU!'s notch punch. Each scallop has been pierced and colored with the white gel pen. Add a ribbon accent and I was done!
