Many of the blogs are offering some yummy Blog Candy (including mine) so make sure you are commenting along the way!
For today's project I wanted to make a Cupcake Birthday Card. I'm not much of a baker and my cakes and cupcakes tend to come from a box... but they are still YUMMY! Here's a look at my card:
I used my Gypsy to weld two of the cupcakes from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge together. I set the height at 5" so it would be easy to make the other cuts just using my Cricut. I used a double sided pink cardstock so the inside of my card would be cute too! Then I used just my Cricut and cut the black base layer, purple wrapper, silver glitter cherry and pink glitter frosting all at 5".
Because the purple cardstock wasn't blingy at all, I decided to grab my Pop Rocks Glimmer Mist to add some shimmer. It really added just the right amount of sparkle to my card. I also added some Christmas Red Stickles to the fruit of my Cherry cut. I just love the way it turned out!
To finish off my adorable little cupcake I added some Googly Eyes! I think they add just the right amount of whimsy! I hope you enjoyed my card...
