Sweet Shop Challenge

Today I tried my first challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.

The challange is called Sweet Shop: Incorporate something sweet on your project (i.e. ice cream, candy, cake etc.) There needs to be an image on your project that has been cut with the cricut machine.

Recipie for this card:
  • Cricut Cartidge Sweet Treats for the cupcake
  • Cricut Cartridge Cindy Loo for the shaped backgrounds
I used my Gypsy to line it all up. The card is 6x6 overall.
  • Paper is mostly scraps, pink and red are Wausau Paper cardstock
  • Inking is Distrees Ink in Worn Lipstick
  • Gelly Roll pen in White
  • Diamond Stickles on frosting area
  • Stamp is from Paper Shapers
The card is resting on my Gyspy stand, made for me by my husband, out of maple. It's angled back a little so it makes it much easier to work on the Gypsy screen when it's plugged in to the Cricut. He is so sweet! :)
