You're The Icing On My Cupcake ... Or The Jam In My Jelly Roll!

by Joanne James22. August 2016 21:38

Happy Monday everyone! I've had a long day of school uniform shopping today but just have time to squeeze in another cupcake card, altogether more clean and simple to yesterday's; I had some leftover bits and pieces and wanted to use the colour scheme over at CAS Colours and Sketches which is almost identical:

Here's my card:

I went with a layered border so that I could leave lots of all-important 'white space' on the centre of my card and stamped my cupcake base directly onto the vanilla mat (using a couple of other neutrals for my case), then cut out the frosting top with my framelits and just popped it on a few dimensionals.

A super-simple card, although for me the funniest thing about this card is the sentiment: if there are any Lethal Weapon movie fans out there, every time I read it I think of the scene where Delores is hunting down Sergeant Murtaugh and says "Well you tell him he's the jam in my jelly roll!" You're the icing on my cupcake just doesn't seem to have the same ring to it!

Back with a Christmas card for you tomorrow - a seasonal 'sneak peek' :-) Until then, happy stampin'!

That is a cute sentiment!  It's almost dinner time here.. and that cupcake is calling my name! Especially all the frosting piled so high!

Your cupcake looks delicious enough to eat!  I love the differently-sized layered borders, too.  Excellent job all-around, Joanne!  Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at CC&S.  Smile
