One Cupcake at a Time!

Here is a quick card I made for my dad for his birthday. I thought I would show you how simple it is by giving you a quick tutorial for this card. Begin with the following supplies...
1-5" strip wide grosgrain chocolate chip ribbon
1- standard card base in Basic Gray
1- Close to cocoa matt embossed with Cuttlebug's Happy Birthday folder, I then sanded the text slightly
1-scallop oval in Basic Gray
1-SU wide oval in whisper white Stamped with image of the cupcake from Party Hearty in So Saffron and Bordering Blue
1- Stamped image of the cupcake from Party Hearty in So Saffron and Bordering Blue cut out and on dimensionals
Adhesive-I like Scor Pal tape as it holds well, but I also use my ATG gun as it is quick

Begin by adhering the embossed matt to the card base.

Next add the wide ribbon the the matt.

Ooops! See what I did. The ribbon needed to go on the matt before the matt was attached to the card base, so I had to lift it up and add more adhesive to make it stick good. Silly me!

Oh I also pre-sponged all the edges of my pieces for that aged look...anyone who knows me, knows I sponge almost every project I do. Here is what we have so far.

Next remove adhesive from large scallop oval.

Adhere scallop oval on the ribbon and to the right side of the card, it should look similar to the next picture

then remove adhesive backing from wide oval with cupcake image on it.

Adhere to center of Scallop oval.

Remove backing from dimensional on cut out cup cake pieces and place then over matching stamped cup cake pieces.

for the following dimensional look...

Stamp a saying on the inside and you're done!

Hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial and simple card.
