Sweet Treats

Melissa and I had some great fun playing with these cute cupcakes...so much fun that we stayed up till 3am making cards. Last week you saw a little sample of what we created. This last weekend we were in Pleasanton, CA meeting and greeting tons of wonderful people. While there we had a lot of comments on today's card so I thought I would show it off and let you know how this fun card was made.


Once again, I used my favorite scoring tool...the Scor-pal.



What you'll need:

* Strip of cardstock 4 1/4” x 11
* Coordinating cardstock pieces for the base back of the card 1 ¼" x 5 ½", 1 ¾" x 5 ½", & 4 ¼" x 5 ½"
* Coordinating cardstock for decorative panels 1" x 5 ¼", 1 ½" x 5 ¼", & 4 x 5 ¼"
* Stamps and embellishments to decorate
* don't forget your Scor-pal

Directions:

Score strip of cardstock (4 1/4” x 11”) at 3”, 6”, 8”, & 9 1/2”


Fold cardstock accordion fold.


Add base back cardstock to each front of panel starting with the first panel.


Line up the second panel with the top and bottom of the first panel and attach.


Do the same for the final piece.


Decorate your top panels and attach.


On this card I used our new cupcake set "Hey Cupcake", just out last week. I added glossy accents to all the cherries and snowflake on the top of the cupcake for frosting. On the last panel I used the cherry and stamped into versamark, randomly stamped all over my panel and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used one of the “toppings” for the middle and again embossed with clear embossing powder. This is truly a have it all set. Everything from frosting to toppers & toppings and everything in between. All products used are available at The Rubber Cafe.


Thanks for stopping by today...
Stay tuned for cupcake # 2 tomorrow.
