Pop It Ups Fancy Label Accordian cupcake

I am not responsible for readers craving cupcakes after viewing this yummy card.  The base is cut using Karen Burniston's Fancy Label Accordian die for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The Cupcake w/ Candle & Bow and Happy Birthday die is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Elizabeth Craft Designs also has peel off stickers in this same image, they are so much fun - you should try them out.  The flourish in the corner is cut using Agatha Edges die.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Sweet Little Sentiments (retired) and die cut using Katie Label Pivot Card.  To ink the sentiment I used Stampin Write Markers.  I love how Karen has thought of everything when creating these dies, all the sets coordinate beautifully....not to mention they are SO MUCH FUN!  
To decorate the cupcakes, I die cut several different colors from sticker paper so I would have an outline & all the little pieces to put back into the cupcake.  If you don't have sticker paper you can use Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets on regular cardstock which makes any paper into sticker paper.  I'm honest when I say it took a while to put all those little pieces back into the cupcake, after I finished I had wondered if I coudl've used Elizabeth Craft Designs Transfer Sheet to help keep all the pieces in place instead of searching for the right piece.....kinda like putting a puzzle together.  You don't have to use the Cupcake die this way, you could also color in the cupcake or even use glitter......oh so yummy sparkly glitter.

I added Glitter Dots to the frosting area on the cupcake - this little Glitter Dots are very sparkly & are flat so they don't make your card bulky.  The trim on the edges were cut using Fancy Frame Edges and I glued them to the card using spray adhesive, if you don't have that an X sticker machine works great too or there's Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets too.
