Eat more cupcakes!

I have a CAS card for you today. I love cards that are made in minutes and still looks great. I’ll let you judge whether this looks great or not, but it sure was made in minutes! LOL! The stamps used are a sentiment and a cupcake from the Hey Cupcake set. (it’s my favorite!!!)

eat more cupcakes 2The card base measures 5x3 and is made out of Bazzill Kraft cardstock. I stamped the little cupcake on four pieces of scrap paper: on kraft, pink patterned paper, white  and red cardstock. I punched out the kraft cupcake with a “1 punch and then cut out the other cupcake pieces and mounted them with thin 3D foam for some dimension.

I layered the cupcake on two more punched out circles to frame it nicely. The sentiment is stamped at the top of the card base. If you find it difficult to get the rubber sentiments straight, use a ruler and make a straight line on the back which can be seen through the acrylic piece you use for stamping. After adhering the cupcake, the frame is doodled with the help of a ruler. For some flair, I added some stickles on the cherry. Done.

It took like 15 minutes. The cupcake is really great cause it’s easy to cut out, no fuzz that takes time. Perfect for paper piecing that is!

Have a great week!
