Hey Cupcake

Today's card was inspired by two things, my friend who is a baker and mainly of cupcake creations and The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.  
So, I got a Crop A Dile from my husband for Christmas but, I had yet to use it so, I decided this was the time.  I cut this card 3 1/2 x 6".  I decided to have the 1/2" across the top be a place for my eyelet's that I was going to mount with my Crop A Dile so, I scored the card at 5 1/2", 6", and 6 1/2" and then sealed the 1/2" top with ATG tape.   The polka dot paper is from the new DCWV Dots, Stripes and Plaids.  I added a strip to the 1/2" section across the top and then a piece of red dot ribbon from Michael's in a way that you can 'hang' the card if you want. 

I cut the cupcake from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge at 3 1/4" but, I decided to cut the main cut twice and just trim the icing part off the top of the pink one.  The base cut was brown and then I traced the bottom a little larger than it was, cut it out of red paper and ran it through my Fiskars crimper so that it would look like a real cupcake holder.   I also inked the edges of the frosting and a little around the crease cuts (it looks much better in person).  I cut across the top with pinking shears and added some little red heart confetti as sprinkles and then pop dotted it onto the card.  
Across the top, I added a strip of red paper that was crimped and then a line of heart stickers.   The sentiment is from G Studio and then mounted on a brown piece of paper that I punched with an EK success heart banner style border punch.

On the inside, I mounted another sheet of the pink paper and put a strip of the dot paper across the top and border punched the bottom with the Fiskar's punch.  Many more projects lie ahead with the Crop A Dile!!!
