CIC198 - Core-dinations

Yum!  These cupcakes look unbelievably delicious and pretty too.  They're your inspiration for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge CIC198.  This week we're being sponsored by Core'dinations.  Check them out, every paper crafter uses card stock and they've got outrageous card stock.  If you aren't familiar with this paper what you need to know is that the various colors have a white core, which makes it really fun to distress. 

My card is inspired by the flowers and the color of the party hat.  I made a very simple card to show one of the things you can do with the core-dinations card stock.  I ran the cardstock thru my Big Shot with a floral embossing folder.  With most card stock you get the embossed look and that's that, but with Core'dinations you can sand it so that the embossing will not just stand up but will show the white interior.  It looks really good.  I should have tried ripping the paper away around the edges of the flowers, so that's an idea for another card, I'd like to see this with pink paper. 

By the way, we're getting really close to the 200th challenge.  Lots of prizes will be offered for that challenge, lots of great sponsors AND in the meantime you can get in on the chance for a prize put together by the team.  Stop at our blog, let us know which was your favorite cupcake inspiration, or just leave us a comment.
