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.
