I don’t know what it is about a cupcake, but I find them immensely appealing. They are just so cute and the perfect amount of sweet. My three-year-old refers to every cupcake he sees as his “birthday cake” which probably says something about my baking, or lack there of.
Because I love cupcakes and my little one loves cupcakes, we’re going to suggest by extension that my mom loves cupcakes too. And even if she doesn’t, we think she might like this cupcake card:
The sentiment says: Grandmas are moms with extra frosting. If you’ve followed my work for long, you know I love puns and funny sayings. Corny? That’s me.
For this card, I used the Cupcake Love line by Little Yellow Bicycle. I can’t get enough of the little felt cupcakes in this collection. Here, I added some tiny pearls to the hearts. Pearls and moms just seem to go together.
On this card, I also used a sweet twine from Trendy Twine called Cherry Cupcake that mixes red and pink together. Love that. And I think this card will fit perfectly with Trendy Twine’s monthly challenge to use twine on a Mother's Day project. You can find that challenge here.
Switching gears to a bit of news. Don't you love it when you get good news? Then don't you hate it when you have to wait awhile before you can share it? Me too! But today, I can spill the beans:
