To create the medallion for my card, I pressed some Martha Stewart Crafter's clay into the mold and then removed it. I let it dry for 24 hours before painting it with some acrylic paints and Distress Stains. I added a thin coat of shimmer paints on top and then dotted the edges with the Gold Pearl pen. When it was all dry, I mounted it onto a gold doily. I created the frame with two Nestabilities dies and then embossed it. I rubbed a little gold ink onto the raised dots. I used two of the flourish dies in opposing corners and added a couple of gold dots with the pearl pen for a finishing touch.
As you can see, cupcake molds don't always have to be used to make cupcakes.
