Yummy Cupcake Die Cut Card

The Sizzix die set (purchased from HM Ben Franklin Crafts) that I used to make this luscious card was in my box of craft supplies to use.....someday.  Well, someday is finally here and I am really glad that I tried the die out.  It was easy to use and resulted in a fun-shaped card for many gift giving occasions.  I decided to use the paper scraps from my desktop pile so the card was virtually free.  I stuck to the look on the Sizzix packaging but moved the twine bow banner and used Bo Bunny Pearlescent Paint to fill in the die cut holes.  I also rubbed a little paint on the frosting piece and sprinkled on some fine crystal glitter.  On the cherry I added Glossy Accents to give it a shiny surface.  The 'just for you' words were printed on the banner using one of the teeny stamps from the Lawn Fawn set. Oh yes, you can position the cupcake die on a folded piece of card stock so that when it is run through the die cutting machine the fold will remain intact or you can just cut two pieces out and glue the top portion.  This die set even has a piece to cut sprinkles!  Whether you are making a card for a child or adult, this die set is one you will use often....I know I plan to make another one soon!
