CASEing Genius Blog Hop Winners and Cupcakes

Monday, November 9, 2015

Hi! Friends of ours got engaged this past week.  We met because the groom-to-be is a coworker of my husband.  I'm always sending baked goods to work with Ryan and this called for something special.  I made 24 vanilla cupcakes with a vanilla buttercream frosting.  I wanted to make sure that the bride-to-be could enjoy a cupcake, too, so I packaged up two of the cupcakes in special little boxes.  I tied them up his and hers style.  Ribbon for her, baker's twine for him. I created seals for the boxes using the Little Labels stamp set and dies from Papertrey Ink.  I included a card that I made quite awhile ago with stamps and dies from WPlus9. 
 I added color with distress paints through a stencil, die cut hearts, and added doodle lines.  See the original post here.
