Easy Easel Cupcake

(simple birthday thanks, label classics-SU)
Another idea for the Cupcake is to make a glitter frosting by inking with versamark, and cover with heat and stick powder then tap off excess. Heat until you see the texture change and then cover with dazzling diamonds and heat again briefly (from the underside is best so you don't accidently scorch the glitter) to make it stick.
The easel is simply made by scoring a 12x28cm along the landscape side at 7cm and 14cm. Valley fold at 14cm, then fold the 7cm score inside to the 14cm fold, and bring back out. The bottom of the easel card front measuring 14x28cm is then adhered only to the flap that was folded in. You can use buttons, brads or ribbon on the inside of the card as I have done here to keep it open.
SU's patterned paper is double sided and here you can see I used two sides of the one sheet of Raspberry Tart DSP. The white and pink side would make elegant invitation cards.
I'll be M.I.A for a week while the new computer is getting fixed...grrr. More ideas using this stamp are on standby, and I will have some fantastic news to share with you by then!
Have a great week!


  1. Great card Yvonne, well done! I love easel cards and I love DSP you used on your card. Love the large cupcake! TFS.
    Hope your computer gets fixed quick so we can see more creations.

  2. This is gorgeous Yvonne. Did you make the bottom of the cake or is it patterned paper? Looks fantastic anyway :)
