Cupcake Gift Card Holder...& New Class Room

Hello Everyone

Today I have a few photos to show you. This is not Elizabeth's Craft Room - this is Elizabeth's Classroom! This is the room in my home, (formerly known as our dining room), that I have converted to a proper Stampin' Up! classroom for my classes and workshops. Thanks to my fabulous DH Michael, who has let Stampin' Up! take over another room in our home - bless his heart!

So are you ready to see the photos...

So what have I been teaching in my classroom? This is a project I have been making at my recent workshops. It is a sweet little gift card holder - with the emphasis on the sweet. :) I am back on the Weight-Watchers band wagon, so these are the only cupcakes I am allowed at the moment. LOL

I started with two Scallop Squares cut with the big shot die and then added a layer of Beau Chateau designer paper. Next came a large scallop circle punched in white and daubede around the edge and finally the cupcake.

We now have the Create a Cupcake stamp set and matching punch and I love them!

The closure is made with Victoria Crochet Trim, and inside I cut another piece of designer paper from the Beau Chateau pack using the Scallop Envelope die - this creates the place to pop your gift card.

The sentiment, (from Create a Cupcake), reads "It's not how many candles you blow out, but how many cupcakes you get!" My thoughts entirely.

Love Elizabeth X
