This card was done at a Stamp Camp this weekend. This was my first time teaching a project at a Stamp Camp and it was lots of fun! This project uses my favorite Big Shot. It is birthday card that could be sent to an adult or a child. You could use Chocolate chip ink instead of VersaMark. And of course you can swap out the paper for anything else you have. I had tried the cupcake with Raspberry tart as the frosting and a Chocolate Chip card stock for the bottom and that was adorable too. I wanted more of a universal appeal so I went with green frosting instead.
Big Shot Tip
Run your paper with the side you want to show facing down. This is a good habit to use since alphabet dies need to be done this way. It also protects the surface you want to use from any impressions left by your cutting pad. Or you can place a piece of paper on top as a buffer.

Flick the candle flame with the stamping sponge and the Tangerine Tango ink.
Cut your dimensionals in half and place around the edges of the cupcake base & top so that it will pop on the card. Run snail adhesive on the candle & flame and place flush on the card.
