Lucky Cupcake!

Hi Friends!

It is Pam creating with you today.  And I have some great news for you!! We are have a 25% off sale on our new Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day dies.  I can't wait for you to see them.  They are just so adorable you are going to want the whole collection.

Today, I am using the St. Patrick's Day Cupcake.  We also have a cupcake for Valentine's Day.  Both of them make fantastic cards or fun embellishments for a baked gift.

Design Steps:

1.  Use an A2 size white card base.  Score at 2 1/8 then flip the card over and score at 2 1/8 again.  This will give you a gate fold card
2.  Cut 2 strips of green card stock at 2 x 5 1/4 and 2 DP strips at 1 3/4 x 5.  Glue them together
3.  Glue the panels to the front of the card

4.  Open the card and cut a piece of light green card stock 5 1/4 x 4.  Glue to the center of the inside
5.  Using the St. Patrick's Day Phrase & More die cut out the sentiment.  Using the St. Patrick's Day Cupcake die cut out extra clovers and coins.  Glue them to the inside as shown and shadow with matching ink
6.  Using the St. Patrick's Day Cupcake die cut out the pieces for the cupcake.  I used green, yellow, black, and brown card stock
7.  Cut out a white circle using the 3rd from the largest Cross-Stitched Circle die.  Add shading to all of the pieces using coordinating ink colors
8.  Assemble the pieces after you have finished shading
9.  Use the 2nd from the smallest Cross-Stitched Circle die to cut the back layer for the sentiment
10.  Cut a 11 x 1 1/2 strip of green then layer a piece of embossed white card stock 4 1/4 x 1 on the middle section.  Wrap the strip around the card to form a band and tape or glue the back closed.  Glue the circle to the middle of the band and pop on the cupcake.  Add the sentiment as shown and your card is complete
