Auntie's Cupcke

My friend Carol has introduced me to Erika's blog where she has a link up on Friday.

You post your card which is an oldie which has previously been posted so I thought it might be fun to join in.

I only began blogging in February of this year and am having so much fun meeting everyone.

This is the very first card I posted.  I had nobody visiting my blog for weeks so I thought this must be the card I showed today on Erika's blog.

The stamp is red rubber unmounted but I don't know what it is I bought it second hand.

The paper is some that has been in my stash for ages and I put it through my Cuttlebug in an embossing folder.  I paper pieced the frilly cover and ribbon and added glossy accents to the cherry.


  1. Hi Barb
    I love your gorgeous cupcake card - it looks good enough to eat!!!
    Fab idea to emboss the patterned background paper rather than plain card - great effect.
