Have you ever needed a cute shaped card for an event? Well MFT has some great templates to purchase and download, plus the instructions to go along with them.
Once I downloaded this cupcake template, I printed it out three times; once on white card stock and once on Stampin Up! pretty in pink. The bottom of one template was cut out and traced onto some designer paper. After cutting out the "frosted" portion of the cupcake, I stamped a background using Stampin Up! pretty in pink dye ink.
Then I stamped the Cupcake Flopsey image onto MFT's white Perfect Panels and then colored him with Prismacolor markers before stippling Stampin Up! pretty in pink ink around him to fill in the white spots. After layering and adding some white Making Memories brads, I popped him up on dimensionals, added some Michaels $1 ribbon and a threaded Papertrey Ink vintage button.
