Happy Thursday!!! I saw this new Sizzix cupcake die at the store the other day and couldn't wait to make something with it. It's a 3-D cupcake XL die by Karen Burniston who is the queen of pop-up dies. At first I couldn't figure out how to assemble it but I went straight to her blog, and she has a video tutorial on making this pop-up. It's so easy once you make it. She also has some helpful hints on making pop-up cards like using a thicker cardstock for the card base. It works so much better. If you are using a lighter cardstock, it is better to apply a second piece on the inside of the card but cut it in half first before you glue it down. You can see where I cut it in half.The round scallop that I placed under the cupcake is from the Eclips cartridge called "basic shapes". It is not in the stores yet but will be soon. Here's a closer look at the cupcake. I used Ice Cream Brigitta from CC Designs. She's so cute and "sweetalicious" was also cut out with the Eclips from the sweetalicious cartridge.
Thanks for looking and hope you're having a wonderful day!!!
