This cupcake is so darn cute. I had a scrap piece of this pp from My Mind's Eye Tres Jolie collection and wanted to use it up. I collected some cardstock that had the same colors in the pp and this is what I came up with.
I used aqua mist for the card base and cut out a piece of pure poppy with the nestabilities Label One die. I embossed it with Cuttlebug's swiss dot folder, cut it in half and attached it to the top and bottom of the pp with a zigzag stitch. Using the nestabilities oval die, I cut out a piece of vintage cream cardstock and stamped my focal image and sentiment to it. I then attached it the card with some foam pop dots. I also added some Xmas Red Stickles to the cherry to make it pop.
