I wanted to make the “Cupcake Card” from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge. However, I wasn’t that excited about the actual cupcake on the card, so decided to utilize my Cricut Design Studio and change it up a bit.
The size of the cupcake was too small for my liking and it didn’t have much “punch” to it, so I designed a topper and wrapper in Cricut Design Studio, using the Home Décor cartridge that has a much cuter cupcake. I skewed the top and bottom, which turned out to be a lot larger than the original cupcake. I still liked the look of it. Wasn’t that happy, also, w/ the candle, so used the candle from the Celebrations cartridge, as it had a “heart” candle.
Also placed a li’l piece of red paper behind the heart, so it was showing up “red”. (see bottom pic) Cute, huh?? :-)
I first cut out the envelope, as you’re advised to do w/ the Wild Card cartridge. Can you see where this is going??? Yeppers, seeing as I enlarged the cupcake, it now wasn’t going to fit into the envelope. Ooops! Now what? Well, I had a brown envelope that was 6.5” x 9”, so chopped off a bit at the bottom, resealed it using my ATG and then wrapped the Wild Card envelope around the bottom of it.
Added a “Happy Birthday” (HB) sentiment, using the Martha Stewart HB punch. Didn’t end up looking too bad, if I did say so myself. LOL
Here you can see how the Cupcake Card will NOT fit into that teeny envelope. :-(

Now, my chunky cupcake snugly fits into the envelope.
