Happy Birthday Cupcake

I love this card style and really had some fun making this one...........love all the movement!!! Thank you Kim Score (www.paperpunchaddiction.blogspot.com) for the inspiration. Kim has a video tutorial on her site in her side bar. In addition, there is a video tutorial on Split Coast Stampers, too. For that reason, I suggest a visit to those sites to obtain the measurements for this project. I only added one additional matting on the base of the card. All other measurements will be on Kim's blog or on Split Coast Stampers.

Slide out the message to reveal message:

The "Happy Birthday" (from the Beyond Birthday Cricut cartridge cut at 2") is double matted: Regal Rose with Whisper White.

Here's the cupcake: embossed icing with the swirl embossing folder, then Stardust Stickles added. Add Stardust Stickles to the cherry on top, too. The Regal Rose Grosgrain matched perfectly around the cupcake holder.

Closer view of the message revealed:
