I am so excited to have a long weekend right now, after such a busy few weeks. So I must say Happy Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend to everyone in Melbourne and what better way to celebrate than with cupcakes! Not only did I bake some Baci cupcakes but also made this card for the Just Add Ink #217 Challenge, “JUST ADD CUPCAKES/CAKE/DESSERT“.
And check out the colours ~ I have used Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette & Cherry Cobbler, oh and Soft Suede for the cupcake wrapper!
The card base is Cherry Cobbler along with the cherry on top of the cupcake. The background is Pink Pirouette Core’dinations cardstock embossed with the Decorative Dots TIEF and sanded. I also distressed the edges with the distressing tool!
I used Flowersoft for the top of the cupcake to give it a bit of texture.
The double bow is made with the SU Seam Binding in Very Vanilla and adhered with a glue dot.
The sentiment is from the Hostess Stamp Set Simply Sketched and then cut out with the Decorative Label punch and sponged edges in Wisteria Wonder ink.
Oh and here is a picture of my Baci cupcakes, I knew you were wondering about them!!! Yummy!!!!

Love all the texture you added Kate, although I’m not sure if I’d eat a fuzzy cupcake in real life though – lol! Your real ones looks decidedly delicious!! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
Kate, I just love the sanded dotty background, and the awesome texture of the icing on the cupcake! Such pretty colour choices, too. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!
