luckily, then, it is in fact the papercrafty variety of cupcakes i wish to discuss today! because i've got some NEW ONES, and they are *fabulous*!!! see, the prize last week at 2sketches4you was an amazing--and amazingly generous--selection of files from the cutting cafe. not only was i given the entire package the design team received, i was also allowed to *choose* some files, too! how cool is that?! (hint: it is very very cool indeed...but also quite hard b/c the cafe's selection is awesome!)
i got some neat patterns for making pillowboxes...and these astoundingly cool shaped sweets cards (which would, amongst other things, make the best thank you notes EVER, imho!) and obviously i could not resist these adorable cupcakes, which come formatted with fun greetings as A-2 cards so that you needn't even cut them out--just print, fold and color!
for this card, i did cut mine out, however; in fact i paper-pieced them with--if i do say so m'self--rather cool results! but i'm getting ahead of myself, as usual. first, let's look at laura davis' glorious sketch 26 from this week at 2S4Y:
*NOW* we can see my paper-pieced cupcakey card. unusually for me, i used papers that were all from the same line; i finally got to properly break out my making memories 6x6 "sabrina" pad. boy oh boy does it streamline the production process to have18 coordinated patterns in the perfect size for card-making!!!
