Scrapbook Blessings Club Challenge #26 - Joy Fold Card

It is challenge time over at Scrapbook Blessings Club!  For this challenge it is ANYTHING GOES with the Design Team spotlighting a "Joy Fold Card".  A BIG thanks to our sponsor, MelJen's Designs.  For mine I used the MelJen's Designs image, Candy Cane Cupcake.  I love this image and by using it I am getting a jump on my Christmas cards.  To purchase this image for yourself head on over here.  To join the challenge head here.

I LOVE to eat desserts! Especially those with LOTS of icing.  When I saw the candy cane cupcake image I just pictured it to be loaded with frosting! LOL  When I did that area of the image I really felt as if I was frosting a real cupcake.  To achieve that effect I used a lot of different things to create it.  The recipe for this card is a little longer than usual due to the "frosting".


  • MelJen's Design digi image, Candy Cane Cupcake
  • Card stock from my stash
  • Tulip Puffy Fabric Paint
  • Extra Fine Glitter by Recollections
  • Stickles (Stardust)
  • Studio G Glitter Glue (red)
  • Liquid Pearls (white opal)
  • Enamel Accents (white)
  • Journey Glaze
  • Prismacolor Pencils
  • Gamsol
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Stickers from my stash
  • I did change the measurement of my card. I used the measurements shown on the video and then I added an inch to each piece (base is 5 1/4 x 7 1/4, scored at the 5 1/4 mark.  The smaller piece is 4 x 7, scored at the 3 1/2 mark).
 My tip: Sometimes when coloring or decorating an image it is good to envision how the real thing would look.  I asked myself when doing this card what in a real cupcake's appearance appeals to me AND it was all about the frosting. LOL

Thanks SO much for stopping by.  I hope that you will check out what the rest of the Design Team has created.  All of us look forward to you joining in on the challenge and showing us your creations.  Be sure to link up over at the Scrapbook Blessings Club.  Have a magical day!!
