It's a Cupcake kind of Day!!!

It's a brand new challenge at Shopping Our Stash ~~ Hello Cupcake!! Chris is the hostess for this challenge. I'm sure you have a few cupcake stamps or more in your stash as well as cupcake paper, brads, ribbon and anything cupcake you can think of. I picked a favourite stamp company for my image, House Mouse Designs, Cupcake Belly, you can see that it is appropriately named too.

I'm not sure of the name of the fold I used, I just call it a tri-fold, (I copied it from a Birthday card I received from "Donna" my house mouse loving friend.)  The patterned paper is from a Kitchen pack I bought in the U.S. a long time ago when I was doing recipe swaps, 8 or 10 years ago. The cardstock is Cameo Coral  and also very antique. The base is 11 X 5 scored at 2 1/2 and 4 on each end. The card when folded is 5 X 5 1/2. 

Close up of the image.

This is the back of the card. The sentiment is one of my very first stamps I bought 18 or 19 years ago. 

I am entering this in:

Thanks for stopping by today and check out the rest of the cupcake cards the design team have made. We would love to see your cupcake cards in our gallery.

What a beautiful card, Barbara! I love this particular fold (I have no idea how it is done) and you did a great job selecting your components. I really love all your House Mouse critter creations. They are all so adorable and this one is no different! The image is beautifully colored and the cupcake is very realistic! Fabulous project!

Bunny said...

Oh my gosh, I just want to lick all of the blue frosting off of that cupcake. (I'm known to do just that and pitch the cake) Anyway..........this is really cute. I love the fold and I love the back, too. I've never seen the HMD created by me stamp. Love it. Wish I had one.

Hello, Barb! That cupcake-belly mouse is just too cute! No wonder he's so happy! What a gorgeous card style and beautiful oval die-cut! I like the sentiment on the back and the cute little mouse pawprints!

Sue from Oregon said...

Yep-that is how I feel after eating cake...maybe too big of a piece at that! Lovely design with pretty dies. I can tell you are a long time HM fan...you have some iconic HM stamps on the back too! Thanks for sharing with us at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. ♥ Sue Kment

LOL!! That is one sweet and cupcake full tummy, no wonder this little mousey is licking its lips and smiling, pretty much the way I do it after eating a cupcake, who doesn't love them.
I haven't seen this particular card fold, it looks awesome.
And where did you get that House Mouse "Created by Me!" stamp? Ohh!! you know I want one!!
Awesome card, Barbara.
