Cupcake, lollies and Christmas! Can it get any better?

Good morning!

Mmmmmmm this cupcake is making me very hungry!

This week over at Stamping With The Dragon we are being sponsored by Bugaboo and the theme is FOOD!  I have used Bugaboo's gorgeous christmas cupcake image for my card and tried something totally different from my usual style.

I think it is called a tri-fold card but basically I used an A5 sized card and scored/folded it so it opened in the front.  I embossed the front panels through the cuttlebug.  In opposite corners I used some Christmas coloured striped scrapbook paper and then attached an embossed strip of shimmery cardstock.

 A very helpful hint from a member of the talented and fabulous design team suggested I use some ribbon to be able to secure the card when it is in the closed position.   WOW!  worked wonderfully and also gave a bit more character to the card.

Colouring this image was super quick and I didn't use many colours as you can see.  I did however use my spica pen on the candy canes and chocolate buttons .... and for once managed to get a photo that showed this!

So head on over to Stamping With The Dragon and not only will you be inspired by some gorgeous creations but by entering your own FOOD themed card you could win a prize!  and we all love prizes .... almost as much as cupcakes, lollies and Christmas :)

Thanks so much for stopping by ..... enjoy your blogging journey ..... mmmm don't you just wish you had something delicious to eat .....
