Recently, one of our neighbors brought us some fabulous cupcakes that she baked. Rich, lovely pound cake with raspberry flavored frosting and a luscious raspberry on top. YUM! I should be baking something for her in return but in the meantime, I pulled out Apron of Love stamp set to create a thank you card for her.

In addition to making this for my neighbor, I also created it for this week’s Global Design Challenge. Be sure to hop over and see all the great projects. Just click here or on the banner below to get to the site.


Design Notes for Apron of Love Card:

Do you know where the cupcake came from? It’s from my favorite stamp set, Bella and Friends. I just cut off the candle and added a raspberry with the Rich Razzleberry Blends Marker (light). A little Wink of Stella on the frosting for a touch of glitter!

Bella & Friends

Seems like I used three different stamp sets for this card. Not something I usually do! The cupcake was from Bella & Friends, the Apron and “I love baking” from Apron of Love and the “Thanks” from All Things Thanks stamp set. The stamp actually said, “Thanks for joining us”. I just cut off the part I didn’t need and stamped away. I’m a rebel like that.

The favorite part of my card is really the color combination.
