Craving a good cake lately. A friend dropped off some killer "Hostess Style Cupcakes" (but made from scratch), and they were sooo good. Ever since then, I've had cake on the brain. Rather than make one, and scarf down even more sugar (don't ask), I made this card instead. 

Used Altenew's Layered Cupcake set  (colored mine with Copics, rather than use the layer stamps). 

Made a shaker card and filled it with these super cute Hai Confetti Sweet Treat embellishments. I like that they are flat and very thin. Hai makes a lot of different types of adorable embellishments. 

After I made the shaker card, decided that a plain white card front just didn't look right, so I blended some Distress Tattered Rose and Altenew Mountain Mist inks on the top and bottom of the front, trimmed, and adhered to a white card. Then I added the pre printed sentiment. 

MOOD WHEN DONE: Happy! I think I put a bit too many of the confetti embellishments in the card as they obscure a bit too much of the cupcake, but live and learn....

This is so cute -- the confetti is perfect.
I tried the links to the products, but they don't seem to be working. Can you check that? Thank you.

My jaw dropped as I looked at this card thinking wow look at all that detail she colored!
Ha...confetti, great idea.
Adorable and very eye appealing.
