Challenge by the numbers
The challenge for this week was to create a card, layout, or paper craft in any theme using 1 ribbon, 2 cricut cuts, and 3 embellishments. I decided to make this birthday card using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge and Sweet Treats cartridge.
I started with a white card base that is 5.5x4.25. Then using smoothie cardstock I cut a circle from George and Basic Shapes at a height of 3.8" (as measured using the Gypsy. The circle is then cut in fourths. I then add a length of ribbon from my stash around a 3.5" square of Pear cardstock and then adhere this piece to the base on top of the circle quarters.
The cupcakes were cut from Sweet Treats cartrige at a height of 2.06" (as measured using the Gypsey) the base of the cupcakes were cut using Petal cardstock, the cupcake wrapper was cut from Pear cardstock and the heart on top was cut using Smoothie cardstock. I then added jewels as the embellishments on the cupcakes. The saying on the card is stamped on using Chocolate ink and Card Chatter: Birthday set from Close to My Heart.
