When I first saw the Marianne D cupcake set, the rounded top reminded me of an old-fashioned parasol, so when Twofer Challenge #38 announced a theme of cake/cupcake you'd think I'd have been one of the first to enter instead of chasing the deadline - such has been my week(s)!
It's all good, I've just been busily making cards to raise money to protect the children and staff at the orphanage in Tanzania - the Ilula Orphan Project. I've just had two orders come in but I'm determined to finish these cupcake cards first!
The first is a traditional cupcake. While searching for some bling, I found this little bejewelled sunflower which complemented the icing perfectly so I stuck it on. I've also "glazed" the icing and candle with some glossy accents. I chopped off the die-cut wick from the candle because I always think a little real string makes for a more realistic wick. The sentiment is from Verve Cupcakes.
The second card uses the cupcake top as a windswept parasol in a spinner card. After umming and aahhing for a while, I went with this sentiment from the WPlus9 Pretty Patches Umbrella set.
Here's a little video of the card in action - honestly I could play with these spinner cards all day!
