I am going to give myself 3 points for creativity - but then deduct 2 for execution!! I have a few issues with the card, but I like the concept enough that I am going to post it anyway.
First, even though I used a cupcake sentiment and cupcake embossing folder - I still don't think it is obvious that my embellishment are cupcakes. I have tried adding candles and/or cherries (too busy) and after that I ran out of ideas to make it more cupcake-like.
Second, the sample card from Online Card Classes usew a patterned paper with distinctly different colors on both sides - it added so much interest when the folded part was a splash of color and I miss that on my card.
I do thank Kristina for all of her tips and hints...templates, how to line it up, etc...and now I am going to go exactly CASE her beautiful card.
