Sweet Treats Cupcake Shape Card

I made this card on Wednesday using my new Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge that dh gave me for Christmas. (I just got my cricut in November and this is my 3rd time using it.) It took some trial and error learning how to get the different die cuts and what settings to use on various papers. I learned a lot and I am in love with my cricut!

What I learned: Multi Cut button and set blade on 4 to cut through textured card stock or 80 lb. card stock...at least this worked well for me. This did not mar my mat nor did I have bits of paper tears.
The next time I use my cricut will be much quicker and no mis-cuts :)

Happy Friday!!!
