The Big Bold Cupcake turns into a flower pot by Stampin Up and me

Hi everyone. Thanks for checking back with me on my blog. I hope you had a great week. The days go so fast. Oh my! I am so excited to show you this card I made.

I used the Big Bold Cupcake Sizzlits die from Stampin Up. But instead of making the traditional cupcake I created a flower pot. The candles are now the stems and the leaves of the flowers. The cup ,of the cupcake is now the flower pot, which I trimmed a bit. The flowers came with the sizzlits die. So I am sure I am not the first one, who tried this out. (smile) And the scallop border you see, is the cake turned upside down. I love this card. The happy yellow is such a great catch for the Basic Grey.

Again I hope that the pictures will help you to get a good idea of making this card. Have fun casing this idea!

Enjoy the rest of your day. The weekend is almost here! Fun, fun
