I got the inspiration for my Cupcake Christmas tree from the graphic for this week's Merry Monday - MM#140 challenge which is to use snowflakes on your card. I stamped lots of little cupcakes in shades of blue, used my aqua pen to drag the ink in and give a hint of colour to the case and icing and then fussy cut them all out. I then layered them up to create a Christmas tree. I added clear Wink of Stella to all the icing and used an oval die to cut out the tree. I layered this onto blue metallic card. To add interest I embossed some white card with more snowflakes, layered it onto blue metallic card and then direct to the card base. I finished the front with a dark blue glitter snowflake to go on top of the tree. On the inside I cut a mat layer of blue glitter paper and on the white panel added a few more cupcakes and a simple greeting. I took a close up of the cupcakes so that you can see the sparkle.
