Happy Valentine's Day!

Well it's Valentine's Day and love is in the air...to celebrate, I have made a really quick card (20 minutes start to finish!) from scrap papers. I think it turned out so cute! Here's the finished project (apologies for the photo quality):

And here's the inside of the card...

Here's what I used to make my cupcake card:

*Cricut Expression with Sweet Treats cartridge
*Cuttlebug with D'Vine Swirls embossing folder
*Scraps of Creative Memories papers
*Scrap of pink/white twine
*Studio G pink ink, "You're Sweet" stamp, and pink self adhesive jewel

I used the card feature on the Sweet Treats cartridge to cut out this cute cupcake at 5.5 inches, then I cut all corresponding layers for the cupcake image. I ran the icing layer through the Cuttlebug to give it some texture...love how it turned out! I also cut an image from one of the flowers (2.5 inches) on the same cartridge to use as my background for my stamped sentiment.

All the pieces:
And here's a close up of the embossing detail on the icing layer:

Then the fun part...assembling all the pieces! This one was really easy to assemble, not many pieces at all. I put a pink self adhesive jewel on the heart cupcake topper, and the stamped sentiment went on the inside of the card with a scrap piece of twine tied into a bow and glued above it. And that's it! Easy peasy. :)

I'm entering this card in Hiding In My Craft Room's weekly challenge.
I hope that you have a great Valentine's Day!
