The Cricut Cardz Challenge is A Stitch in Time, to make a project for any occasion, using any cartridges and colors we wanted and to use real our faux stitching on the project. Since I have a co-worker having a birthday later this week I decided to make her a birthday card. This is what I came up with.
My card is a 5" X 7" and made from white card stock. I added a hot pink mat cut at 4 3/4" X 6 3/4" and a lime green mat cut at 4 1/2" X 6 1/2". My patterned paper is from SEI and is cut at 4 1/4" X 6 1/4". The cupcake is from the Smiley Cards Gypsy cartridge and was cut at 3 1/2". I used the same hot pink and lime green that I used for my mats to cut the layers of the cupcake. The tag for my sentiment is from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge and was cut at 1 1/2" from the pink card stock. I made my own shadow for the tag by just increasing the size of the tag a 1/4" and cutting it from the green card stock. I added some faux stitching to the pink mat and also around the green layer of the sentiment tag and the outside edge of the cupcake wrapper and added some white dots to the pink cheeks. I ran the frosting layer through my Cuttlebug and embossed with the the Divine Swirls embossing folder. I cut my sprinkles from a light pink and added some cotton candy stickles to them. Finally, I outlined the frosting layer and the pink tag with some Glam stickles. I adhered the cupcake to the card with an action wobble. Thanks for visiting.
