My little Cupcake
I love a good cupcake. Its gotta have chocolate frosting, though!  What's your favorite?  Various punches make this card easy to recreate.  Here are some tips.  1) The candles were the toughest part about making this card because they are so small.  The cupcake builder punch does all 'cutting out' so attach them with the Stampin' Up! 2-way Glue Pen. It's easy to use and makes a lot less mess than your adhesive.  2) Notice how I stamped the sentiment on Pool Party cardstock versus white?  Try stamping your words on a lighter, coordinating cardstock next time you create a project.  3) Use the framelits to cut out the word banner - saves lots of time!
