Birthday Cupcake

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With a fast approaching birthday for my Mom, I  wanted to try a new card style. Browsing through card tutorials at SplitCoastStampers, I chose the Flap Fold Card. I do not have a 2 1/2" circle punch or die, so my thoughts turned to my Cricut machine. Maybe I could make the card with it! Well, this is my results! Card is cut 4.25" x 11" from blue DCWV textured cardstock. Using Cricut Design Space, I added score lines at the 2.5" and 6.75", then added a 2.50 " circle to cut the opening in my card. From there, it was playing with Cricut images to complete the card!

Cricut Cartridges:
Love You A Latte - Strawberry Cupcake is cut 1.25" wide and is pop-dotted on the scallop circle.
Elegant Edges - Circle Scallop is cut 2.3" wide x 2.28" high.
Once Upon a Princess - Cupcake Heart is cut 1.75" wide. It is pop-dotted on the card to hold the flap down.
Elegant Embellishments - Birthday is cut 2.25" wide.
Straight From the Nest - Cupcake corner is cut 2" wide. This was cut to use on the flap, but it seemed too large. Since it was cut, I added it on the inside sentiment mat. A hand written sentiment will be added.

Martha Stewart Daisy Dots was used for the decorative edge on the flap.
