Cupcakes anyone?

Welcome over here at Sugar Nellie´s Simply Sassy Blog and my little friday inspiration post.

I finally wanted to use


since this cute little chef is the only one of the newest release that I haven´t used yet. So I decided she deserved something more special than a normal square card. When I was thinking about what to make I was enjoying a yummy cupcake and realized that she would be the perfect image to be put on a recipe card. And I also got inspired to make the card a cupcake shape.

It´s made quite similar to the famous flower pot cards, just in a cupcake shape. You can pull out the cupcake and write the recipe (or any other text) on the bottom:

I hand drew the cupcake, cut out its different parts and made a slightly bigger shape of the whole cupcake where I was able to sew the "cupcake wrapper" on, leaving it open at the top. I measured how much space there was between the sewn edges and made another slightly smaller cupcake bottom, that I glued to the cupcake top. The image is only attached to the cupcake bottom so the "card" can be pulled out.

I haven´t written anything on it yet since I plan to use it for the recipe of the cupcake I was eating before making this - and I need to get this one from a friend first... (so yes, I didn´t make that yummy thing on my own LOL).

To color the image I used these Copic markers:

Pattern papers are by Magnolia, text by Studio G.

And I am also proud to make an exciting announcement today.
