The Release Continues! Here is the second set I'm releasing this month and PARTY is still the theme! Like with the Tea Time Set, the Cupcake Card and Box Set also comes with a shaped card and matching favor box. It comes with two "toppings"... cherry on top or candle for a birthday.
For this felt set, I went with the cherry on top template and added a piece of knotted hemp for the stem. After cutting the template out with my Cricut machine (don't worry, if you don't have a cutting machine, scissors will do), it took only five minutes to attach the felt and dot the icing with white dimensional paint.
NOTE: if using liquid pearl or dimensional paints, be careful not to drop the box on the carpet. There were little white dots on our dark carpet and trying to wipe it off just smeared it. Not only the carpet was smeared, but if I turned this felt box around, you'll see a disaster!
Here's another card I made using beads to decorate the swirled icing. The cherry stem on this one is made from a 1-1/2" piece of wire.
For more inspiration, don't forget to check out the design team's creations:
REMEMBER, your comments may win you one or both of these new sets. Each designer is giving away a set and your comments automatically enters your name. From my list of comments, I'll be giving away BOTH sets to one lucky winner. Each of the designers will announce their winner some time Saturday, the 19th.
By the way, another way to win one of these sets is by playing the 3D Tuesday Challenge on Paper Craft Planet. There is also a free template and tutorial of the project if you play along (see previous post).
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
