Just Buggin' Challenge #18

This weeks Just Buggin' challenge is "In the Shadows"
Use the shadow or blackout feature with your die cut.

I can always use a birthday card so I grabbed my "Doodlecharms" Cricut cartridge and cut out the cupcake listed on page 108.
I've circled the images that I cut with my Cricut so you could see which pieces I used for this card.
Below is a photo of the cut pieces and some tools I used to make the cupcake card.
The base of the card is size 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" then folded in half.
The floral paper is cut 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" cutting this size give a small border around the edge of the card. All the cupcake pieces were cut at 4"
I decided to use different size hole punches for the confetti on the cupcake, the crimping tool added a fun texture to the cupcake base, after crimping I brushed a little ink over the image.
I cut the candle four times, two orange and two yellow to give a dimensional look.I used pop-dots to on the candles and to pop the cupcake off the card.Just Buggin' has weekly challenges, come join the fun!

Have a wonderfully creative day!
Robin :)
