Since SU's regional only an hours flight to Anchorage, I HAD to be there! (And so glad I did) I wanted to get the most out of it that I could, so I decided to make swaps. Only problem, we had just moved into the house. I went with a catalog CASE and went with the cute little cupcake card on pg 68(I think). Now, like I mentioned before, I had some issues with this cupcake punch. First of all...builder punches aren't my favorite because of the way they are designed. (But, I learned at Regional that the stocking punch...coming here in a few days to the holiday mini... matches the stamp set perfectly, and its the first to do so. Maybe my thought will change on them)
So, after much thought, I punched out a template, then aligned the stamp on the block to match the punch.
|Make sure to align for proper spacing because of the cherry on top!|
Here is the finished product. I used So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White and Soft Suede. I embossed the card with the polka dot embossing folder and the scallop border punch for the borders. I added a little glitter to the right side of the frosting too for just a little pop!
At first I wasn't a big fan of my color choice. It was looking a little like buttered popcorn before I assembled it, and the Wild Wasabi border is really what ties it all together. I had a lot of compliments at regionals and I was so excited to be able to participate in that swap! So many beautiful cards!! What I didn't realize is that most people swap card fronts, and put all the info on a label on the back. That way you can write your recipe and have their contact info, then be able to cover it up to give to someone. Wish I did that!

Have a scrap-tastic day! Looking forward to getting back to challenges!
