Hello, happy Sunday everyone!
Today’s card I created for this week’s CASology challenge,
Our new tasty cue card for week 243 at CASology is “ICING”.

I’ve chosen to create a minimal card design with plenty of open with space,
I’ve used minimal colour, while allowing a big pop of colour for the focal image.
My card base is an A2 top folding card made out of Whisper White Thick Cardstock,
Again I’ve used the Stampin' Trimmer for all my trimming and paper scoring today.

The focal image on today's card is from the Carousel Birthday Clear Mount Stamp Set.
For the cupcake bases I’ve stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock
And the cupcake icing is stamped in Calypso Coral Ink onto Calypso Coral Cardstock.
I’ve then used the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies to die cut out the cupcake pieces.
These Thinlits coordinate with the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and the Carousel Birthday Stamp Set.

Next I adhered the cupcake bases directly to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To accentuate the icing I adhered each icing top to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals,
this really makes the icing pop and adds some dimension to the card design.
The little birthday sentiment comes from the Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set,
I’ve stamp the sentiment under the three cupcakes, using Early Espresso Ink once again.

As a finishing touch I used the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush to apply some glitter to the
icing on each cupcake, this adds a nice sparkle to the design without overpowering it.
I hope you enjoyed this sweet little cupcake card design,
Thanks so much for stopping by!
