Shopping Our Stash: Use a Cupcake: Image/Sticker/Paper, etc.

Hello, Crafty Makers!
Our fortnightly challenge at Shopping Our Stash invites you to create a project featuring Cupcakes!💖  I love cupcakes and oddly, I had only two cupcake stamps in my entire collection, at least in the entire portion of my collection that I had the strength to look through.😜  Exhausted, I went to Google where I found a FREE line drawing that worked perfectly for my idea.   
This project satisfies my personal goal of creating more "cutesy" cards using critter and people images.  It was also a stash reducer.
I really must force myself to create more cutesy cards.  If nothing else, they will help me reduce my stash and my supply of Really Reasonable Ribbons.
What I did:
  1.  I opened the cupcake file in Photoshop and resized to 2.333" x 2.977" (700px   893px).
  2. The image was colored with Copic Markers.  Copics used: Icing: G82, G21, YG11,   Cupcake Holder: BV01, BV000, BV04, BV02, BV08, BV13. Glossy Accents™ was added to the icing and then sprinkled with glitter.
  3. While my cupcake was drying (I always allow Glossy Accents™ to dry overnight) I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4.25" x 11.0" and folded it at 5.50". (A2)
  4. I die cut an oval window on the front of the card and attached a piece of acetate.
  5. I used my oval die to cut a piece of patterned paper to be used as a background layer for the cupcake.  
  6. Next, I stamped my elephant image, colored and fussy cut it.  I also stamped my sentiment and cut it out with my scalloped punch.  
  7. I cut four additional scalloped circles from a piece of scrap and glued them together and then attached them to the back of my sentiment for added dimension.  I also added double-sided foam tape to both the image and the sentiment. 
  8. Finally, I attached a ribbon and bow to the bottom of the oval.
Stuff I Used:
