Christmas Cupcake

I used It's a Cupcake Kind of Day for this card. The sentiment is from Cupcake Flopsey. It actually says HOPPY cupcake day, but I added a little line on the hoppy and it now says happy. :)
This is a yellow cupcake with chocolate frosting, sugar sprinkles and a cherry on top. Mmmmmm it's making me hungry. I think I need one IRL! :)
I added some felt ribbon (found at Hobby Lobby), a Heidi Swapp ghost shape snowflake (to keep with the snowflake theme) and a button out of a Basic Grey button pack. There is also crystal effects on the cherry making it shiny, but I hard time capturing that in the photos. This card follows SC201 from SCS. Click to check out the sketch!
Ink: versamark, Memento brown
Paper: Basic Grey Wassail, chocolate, white
Accessories: Heidi Swapp ghost shape snowflake, crystal effects, twinklets (glass glitter), basic grey button, felt ribbon, Janome sewing machine, black dimensional boosters, glue dots, Copic markers

  3. Super yummy looking Jody! Love that you changed the sentiment...perfect!
    LOL...I blame you ;) for my Ghost Shape addiction! Love them now!

  4. Oh yummo! Very scrumptious looking card!

  5. What a great idea to use a cupcake image for a xmas card. We do eat a lot of sweets at xmas-time. I love the colors, the bling, and the acrylic snowflake. Great job!

    Gorgeous! I'm trying to touch my computer screen to take it all in! Please Jody...can you give some hints on how you get your sewing so straight and perfect?? There must be a "Jody rule" about it somewhere?
    BTW...I have started using Jody rule #?--using another piece of CS the same size as my card front to hide unsightly brads, stitching etc. BRILLIANT!
    More Jody rules! More Jody rules!!

  7. This is fabulous! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Heidi Swapp Ghost Snowflake...I must get some!!

    Looks good enough to eat! Such a pretty color palette (and I LOVE your DP!)

    Thanks for all the helpful comments at the release party last week! I love your work Jody! :)


  9. I WANT A CUPCAKE NOW! Thanks a lot. Great card, but frankly it looks too realistic for my dieting endeavors.
