Cupcake, anyone?

Here's a card I made for the Z-fold challenge that my Scor-Pal group is doing this week.
The "Z-Fold Card" tutorial is shared by Rose Ann Reynolds.

The Z-fold base is quick and easy to make.
4-1/4" x 11" to start.

Score at 5-1/2"


Move cardstock to the right to 1/4" mark.
Score at 8-1/2"


Fold into a "Z"


Here's the cupcake from SU's new Simple Birthday Thanks stamp set. I used my SU! markers to ink up the areas I wanted to stamp. Then I used some retired DSP and paper pieced the bottom of the cupcake. Using my handy dandy Scor-Pal, I scored some lines into the back of the cupcake, giving the front of the DSP some dimension. You can see that I used a sponge dauber that was inked up in Pumpkin Pie and added some color to the scored lines.


The sprinkles on the cupcakes needed some added dimension so I used my small hole punch to make mini circles and glued them on the cupcake.


The cupcake was mounted onto the cardbase with snail adhesive and pop-up glue dots.
Front DSP is 2-1/2” x 4-1/16”.
Inside DSP is 4-1/16” x 5-5/16”


Happy stamping!
