I had lots of fun with the images and dies in this set.  I started by securing the sprinkle stamp and paper in my MISTI and stamping several times to create a decorative background layer. I attached the layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.  I cut the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables  layer, secured it in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment.  I attached the sentiment layer to the red layer using ATG adhesive and then applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back and attached to the card base.

I cut the cupcake top out in white and the bottom in red.  I crimped the bottom to add dimension.  I applied white embossing paste to the top using a Sofft spatula.  When the paste was totally dry I attached the tiny heart sprinkles all over it using glossy accents.  I cut two little leaves off of a stem from the Impression Obsession Leaves and Stems set and attached it along with one additional heart to the tippy top of the cupcake with glossy accents for a sweet embellishment.  I think this looks good enough to eat.  I am hoping there is a chocolate cake underneath all that frosting.
