Here is a picture of the card...
Here are the steps I went through to create the card.
I cut a piece of white cardstock from the kit 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". I put various colors of Tim Holtz distressed paints on my craft mat, sprayed a little water on the mat, and circled the card stock through the paints on the mat.
After the background paint dried, I torn a couple strips of patterned paper from the kit and adhered them to the background. I used modeling paste and two different stencils to add some texture. After the modeling paste dried, I splattered some brown ink on the card as well.
I stamped one of the cupcake images on white cardstock with brown ink, colored them in with Gelatos, and cut them out. I love the Gelatos because you can add water, mix colors together, and apply like water colors.
I cut a strip of the kraft paper from the kit and used a crimp roller to make it look like corrugated board.
I stamped the sentiment "Make Life Sweet" on a piece of white card stock and cut it out. Then I distressed the edges of the kraft strip, cupcakes, and sentiment with brown ink and white paint.
I glued down twine and the sentiment on the card. Then I taped down a piece of ribbon - gathering sections to make pleats.
The corrugated kraft strip and the cupcakes were adhered with pop-up foam to add dimension. I adhered the piece to a 6" x 6" piece of pink card stock from the kit and then glued the entire front to a 6" x 6" card base.
Here are a couple close ups!
