For some added flair, the design team also added some touches of paper piecing and/or paper piercing! Go check them out at the Friday Mashup blog!
For my card, I used a LOT of retired products. Just had an itch to clear out some stuff....maybe because my holiday pre-order arrived this week!! LOL! I started with a garden green card base, and added a layer of blushing bride, embossed with my Big Shot and the perfect polka dots impression folder. The layer is 4-3/4" square, and a little bit was not embossed, so I added some paper piercing at the top and bottom. My cupcake is constructed with the retired dsp... Candy Cane something-or-other. I just have a little left, so I want to finish it up! I used my large sizzix scallop circle die for the top, and embossed it with elegant lines impression folder, like swirled frosting. If you look closely, I did some paper piercing around the top of the cupcake too. The bottom portion features a scallop trim border to dress it up. For embellishment, I added some retired baja breeze striped ribbon, and a big designer button in real red. To dress up the button, I added some current bakers twine. The sentiment is from Your a Gem, stamped in garden green and punched out, popped up with a dimensonal, and trimmed with some retired silver cord.
With all of these retired goodies...maybe I need to find a recent retiree who needs to "Enjoy" her new life!
