I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!  Today, I’m sharing an adorable cupcake card.

For this card, I used a new die set.  It is a Sizzix die designed by Stephanie Barnard called the Cupcake Fold-it die set, and I think it is just the cutest!  This is the second card I’ve made with it since I got the set about a week ago.  It is perfect for birthdays, congratulatory notes, or just to brighten someone’s day.  For the card base, I used Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I used it for the card front as well. The way this die is designed, you can create either a top-folding or a side-folding card with it.  However, you will be missing a small portion of the die cut because of the fold in the card, so you do need to cut an additional card front unless the missing piece doesn’t bother you.  The cupcake liner is cut from some scraps of blue and grey paper, but that delicious chocolate-y frosting is cut from the equally delicious brown bag kraft paper.

Hello, I hope you are enjoying your Saturday!

For today’s card, I’m sharing one of my favorite styles of card – a Flip-It!  I think they are just a lot of fun, and I know my nieces and nephew enjoy receiving them because they have moving parts.  I couldn’t resist the sheep image… March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb, right??  It sure did for us this year!

For the card base, I used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.  It is nice and heavy, and the score lines create nice, clean creases.  I also used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock for the sheep, which is stamped with Tuxedo Black ink, die cut, and colored with Copics.  For an accent, the strip along the side of the card is cut from Epic Black cardstock.  The green paper on the sides of the card is some origami paper from my stash, and the yellow textured cardstock is from my stash as well.

The stamps and dies I used are new for me.  They are by Stephanie Barnard, one of Sizzix’s designers, called Sheep2Stamp and the matching Sheep2Stamp die set.  Inside the card, I also used the Elegant Labels framelit dies to cut out solid shapes for the other side and stamped “Just for Ewe.”  The flip-it card die set is the Elegant Flip-it Card Set and I used it in conjunction with the Elegant Labels framelits.
