Cupcake Honey

Cupcake Honey provided by Scrapper's Delights
First Challenge of the New Year at 613 Ave C is to "Make a Matching Envelope".  My DT project  features the charming 'Cupcake Honey' from Scrapper's Delights .  The 613 DT has a multitude of great examples for you - with images from either Scrapper's Delights or Lacy Sunshine who are our sponsors this go around!  To join the challenge - you can find details at 613 Ave C!

  • Two sheets of 12 x 12' paper used for the envelope and the background for the front and inside of the A2 size card. Corner Chomper used to create 1/2 in. round corners.
  • Four different sizes of a scalloped-oval die set was used for the main image, the address label on the envelope and the mat for each of them.  
  • Top Tip Tuesday: I did not have the right color paper for the mats, so I colored the white with Copics to match the blue in the background paper.
  • For the focal image I used a Paper Tole Technique with 3 printed copies of the image, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' all the layers. 
  • A double bow was created with my Proctor Bow Maker - ribbon from stash.
