Sweet Cupcake for Hayley

My little niece who is the sweetest thing I know turns 2 the day after Valentines Day.  I knew immediately that I wanted to make her a cute cupcake card.  I used the same svg file as I did for my last blog hop card made by Maria Bell.  Here is her link: http://stampininspirations.blogspot.com/2010/04/little-cs-new-relese-cc-design-stamps.html
 This time, I cut the card base from Hibiscus Burst cardstock.  The cupcake base is Bitty Box Basics paper scored with my score-bug from the underneath to imitate the fluted edges of a cupcake wrapper.  The frosting was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and sprinkled with some rhinestones.  I used some cute pom poms to line the rim of the frosting.  I cut a couple of leaves from felt and used a PTI Raspberry Fizz button for the cherry on top.  The number 2 was cut using the Century font and SCAL.  I really love the inside too:

I loved using Background Basics Tin Type for the cupcake liner on the inside.  I used a little prisma glitter for a bit of sparkle.  The sentiment is from Big Birthday Wishes.  There were so many wonderful sentiments to choose from with this set.  Perfect for the inside or outside of birthday cards.  I can't wait to give this to her next week.  She won't get it yet, but her mom is the only relative I have that loves crafting.  I know she will love it.

Oh my oh my, Cathy! This cupcake is divine! I love it! What I love about it most is that you've gone with Hibiscus Burst on the outer wrapper which is a neat choice and hardly ever seen cupcake-wise (so refreshing) and Tin Types inside! Genius! Actually all the charming elements you've chosen are so sweet and novel. So inspiring. I think I might need to get into my craftspace now and start baking. ;-)
