Your Sweet Card

Let me first say that this card was just in my head, (I didn't even copy it from anyone!) and it wanted to come out and it turned out SO cute! It did take a couple of tries to get it there but now look how CUTE! (Let's see how many times I can say CUTE!)

So here is how to do it! Take a cream 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper print "Your Sweet" in pink where you want it (trial and error really.) I put my page to landscape and entered down till it looked just under the halfway point. Printed a test sheet, it wasn't quiet down far enough but a whole return would have been way off so I changed the font size of the spaces above it and got it where I wanted it. (That was very long winded just for a simple step sorry!) Now cut the 11" side down to 6" and fold in half.

Then on some dark pink I printed "{with a cherry on top}" in chocolate brown, this too was trial and error of where I wanted it on the paper. If it's too far in just trim to fit the card.

Now take your cute chocolate and pink cream paper, I found mine at Joann's fabric, and trim down to 3.5" x 6". Glue on the front.

Then embellish with staples! On this part make sure your card it open.

On to the matte of the cupcake, cut a 3.5" circle out of brown. Then cut an inch cream strip and a slightly larger light pink strip and stapled them across the circle, trim the off the edges to match the circle.

Next is the cupcake. I got a piece of cardstock spay adhesive-d tin foil on to the front and back cut out a trapezoid looking shape and then crimped it with my crimping iron! Yes my crimping iron from the 80's because I don't have one for paper, although that would probably work well too!

Hot glue it on to the circle.

For the top of the cupcake I cut freehand, just make it a squiggly half circle-ish cupcake top. Then crumple it.

Hot glue a dark pink button on top.

Pop the top with a pop dot.

I was going to end with this but I found some beads for sprinkles that I couldn't pass up.

So I used regular glue to glue my "sprinkles" on.

It's so cute, I could almost eat it!

Then use two pop dots to pop the matted cupcake onto the card and TA-DA, CUTEST card in town!
