"Love you sweetheart" card

Hi everybody, I am on a roll!! Here is another challenge entry.

This time the challenge is over at Fantabulous Cricut. The challenge this week is to create a project that includes sweets (i.e. ice cream, candy, cake etc.)

I made this Valentine card for my youngest son.  

I cut the cupcake at 3 3/4" (and all the layers) from Celebrations.  The little hearts running down the right side are foam, glittered hearts from Dollar Tree. I was so excited to share this card, the Stickles weren't even dry yet when I took the pictures!!

Here you can see how the card opens (it's a Z fold card) and I cut two shadow layers for the cupcake so that you have a place to write on the inside of the card.

See how it opens up?

I used some Crayola card stock for the bg paper.  It looks like all the hearts were hand-drawn! :) I attached some crafters string to the left side under my sentiment label. I printed the sentiment on my computer using Pea Shelia font at 20 points and added a clip art heart. Lastly I added lots of Stickles... okay I might have a problem with Stickles... it's okay, you can call it an addiction! :)

Thanks so much for visiting me here at  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl

Your Valentine cards are great. I sure do like that fold. I have become comfortable with using the bases that I bought at Micheals when they had them on sale, so as soon as they are gone I need to start trying some other folds again. The glitter is extra pizzaz!

Gotta love glitter! Super idea to use the image's shadow for a message space...I'm going to remember that! TFS!
