Christmas Cupcake

I saw a Hallmark ornament and thought it would make a cute little card.  I made some adjustments to make her all mine :)  I used the Jolly Holidays and From My Kitchen Cricut cartridges.  I cut Santa's little helper at 3.5 and I cut the cupcake at 2.5.  I also cut the recipe die cut from From My Kitchen but I don't remember the dimensions.  I cut off the legs (!) and skates and positioned her on top of the cupcake.  I used gesso to give dimension on the cupcake frosting and the hat.  Honestly, I don't know much about using gesso.  I just slapped it on, swirled it a bit and waited for it to dry.  I added some sparkle with Stampin Up Smooch Moonlight Pearlized Accent Ink and sequins that I colored with a Copic marker to make them yellow.

I entered my card on:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - #190
Crafty Boots Challenge - Christmas
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 299, Christmas Catch Up

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!!
