Cupcake Anyone?

I will start this out by saying that I don't have a real pattern for this card! I used my Ellison Thickcut cupcake/ice cream die. I diecut the shapes and then enlarged them on my pc and printed out to use as a template. I took the two pieces and overlapped and traced them onto my folded cardstock for the base card. Then I used my Print Pack designer series paper for the layers. It is hard to see in the photo, but I ran the striped piece through my crimper before cutting it out. The polka dot piece is then layered on top. I added Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the dots, and used liquid applique and CE to go around the border. The cherry on top is done with the 3/4" circle punch.
edited to add template!!!!
I hope this works! I scanned what I used as my template. You may have to enlarge or reduce. Enjoy!
