Patriotic Cupcake

A little red, white, and blue in the days leading up to Independence Day!

The card base is 4 1/4"x5 1/2," and made from white card stock.  I cut a blue mat at 4 1/8"x5 3/8," then a red striped mat at 4"x5 1/4."  The blue strip is 1 1/2"x5 1/4," the red strip is 1 1/8"x5 1/4," and the white strip is 1"x5 1/4."

I found the cupcake in the Silhouette Store.  It is called "PPbN Designs Delicous Cupcake," and is by PPbN Designs (#46480).  When it is all assembled it is about 4 3/4" tall.  I added diamond glaze to the white "shine" on the cupcake icing and also to the darker blue and red candy dots.  I covered the lighter blue dots with waterfall Stickles and the lighter red ones with x-mas red Stickles.  I also embossed the icing with the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder.

I used a stamp from Scrappy Moms Stamps for the sentiment.  It is from the Quirky Quotes set.  I stamped it in faded jeans Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.  I finished off the card with some blue gems.

I made this for the following challenges:
