Kraft Journal was sweets and baker's twine, I thought I was in trouble. I'm not a cutesie-type person and I didn't think that I had any stamps that I could use. Then I remembered this somewhat grunge cupcake from Club Scrap. I also don't have any baker's twine. But I had planned ahead for that. Of course, I couldn't decide what color would be the best baker's twine to own...there are too many colors. So I made my own. I bought some thicker ply crochet thread, cut a piece long enough for my project, wrapped it around an old medicine container, and with my Copic pen, colored in the stripes. Once I had my baker's twine, I used it to make a Spirelli die cut panel for behind the cupcake. A cuttlebug highlights panel supplies the birthday greeting. Of course, the card base is Kraft cardstock.
