Cupcake Cards Details Post

Good morning crafty friends, 
I wanted to share the details on how I created my cards for the August, IFTL recipients.

Here’s a look at both cards

The finished card sizes are the A2 in white cardstock.
I used the DCWV Glitter Stack for the pretty patterned paper.
The zig zag on the bottom was an EK Success punch.
The “Celebrate” stamp was stamped in Cranberry and is from the Art Philosophy set

Here’s a closer look at the cupcake. The cupcake was cut at 2.25” using the Artiste Cartridge the Green Star shape was cut at 3” from the Artiste Cartridge as well. The blue circle was cut at 2.25”. I used a circle punch but you can also cut one out of the Artiste cartridge.
