How Sweet It Is

I'm starting today with a confession.  I am a paper hoarder.  I love our designer series paper.  I buy our paper, but I don't always used it.  Are you that way?  Today I'm cutting the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper .  It's so easy to make a card with this paper- and fast!

While making confessions, I also don't use the Brights that much.  I love this card!

The card base is Melon Mambo and is cut at 5 1/5 x 8 1/2.  Fold at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Granny Apple Green and measures 3 3/4 x 5.  The diagonal stripe paper is from How Sweet It Is.  Cut it to 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.

Fussy cut a cupcake from one of the other patterned papers.  Funny story, I was attending a card class that my sister was having.  She was explaining the cards to the group and said we would have to fussy cut some flowers.  One of her ladies asked her if she called it that because she fusses when she cuts.  Fuss and cut!  I'm not sure why demonstrators call it fussy cut, but maybe that's it!  Who knows!  Cut out a couple more of the candies.  You will also need these on the inside of the card.  Go ahead and cut two of everything.

Using the Stitched Shapes Framelits cut a Whisper White circle.  Use the second largest circle.  Now cut a scallop circle from Melon Mambo from the Layering Circles Framelits.  

Cut a banner from Whisper White that is 1 x 5 1/4.  Notch the end and curl it up just a little with your fingers or bone folder.  Stamp the saying from Incredible Like You from the Occasions catalog.  Stamp in Melon Mambo.  Add the banner across the card.  I always line my card up straight with my grid paper.  Now use those grids to get the banner straight on your card.

Add the circles.  Add the cupcake and candies with dimensionals.  

Finish up the card front with several of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

Here's the inside of my card.  Use the Incredible Like You stamp set for the sentiment.  Add those extra pieces you cut out.  That was easy!

I think this card would appeal to everyone!  You can also make it in about 15 minutes!
