  1. I used the Kaleidacolor pad and stamped Alexander.  I cut this piece of cardstock to 4.0 x 5.25.
  2. I then stamped the cupcake  in the Paris Blue Memento.  I colored the cupcake with Copic markers.
  3. I applied the Snow Writer to the top of the cupcake.  This is supposed to look like snow.  I thought it did a great job of looking like icing.  I applied red glitter to the icing and let it dry.
  4. I cropped the cupcake and mounted it on a navy piece of cardstock.  I then mounted the cupcake on the Alexander piece and this piece onto the red card.
  5. I cut another piece of white paper 4.o x 8.25".  The middle needs to be scored with a 1/8" gap between score marks so that the honeycomb paper can be added to the center of the card.  I stamped the cupcake bottom and cupcake top on the honeycomb paper and cut the shapes out.  I then applied the tacky tape to the outside edges of both pieces.  I put some glue in the 1/8" center of the card where I wanted to place the honeycomb paper.  I then removed the red liner from the tacky tape one side at a time, closed the card and pressed it to make sure the tape got a good hold.

My one year old grandson just loved opening and shutting this card.
