Cuttlebug Challenge





I just discovered the Cuttlebug Challenge blog today. Now, I don't own a lot of fancy tools, but I absolutely love my Cuttlebug. When I saw that they currently have a challenge to create a cupcake using Cuttlebug products, I had to give it a try.


I had fun creating this card. The bottom of my cupcake is a stamp from Oxford Impressions. The top of the cupcake is created by a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used two layers so I could insert my candle made from the Swiss dots embossing folder inside. I added little sprinkles to my frosting with markers. I then added a border from a new set of border embossing plates I just got. And, finally, I cut my tag from one of the Cuttlebug die cut sets.
The luscious paper in the background is from K&Co.
