Beginning a Lovely Partnership with The Paper Cut!

 Off on a new adventure for me as I begin creating cards for The Paper Cut!  I'm  very excited to be using their very cool pre-cut and scored card blanks-it makes creating a card SO very easy.  No more measuring, cutting, scoring--it's already done for you!  All you have to do is add your creativity and have fun!
The style I'm using on these Birthday cards is called appropriately the "Cupcake Swinging Z Fold Card" in 2 fabulous colors, Lemon Drop & Pewter.  I've always been interested in these cards that do a "flip" while you're opening the card and having the Impression Obsession Cupcake Set thin metal die set to really accent the flip was fantastic!  
On the BOLD graphic card, I teamed up the Lemon Drop card with one of The Paper Cut's new Pop Tone card stocks called Razzle Berry, both for the embossed liner and the cupcake base.  I love this yummy pink color!! Then I used the Whip Cream card stock for the icing and the cupcake sentiment frame inside-topped it off with some seed beads "sprinkles"--Looks good enough to EAT!! 

Next I was on to a little more elegant card using the same Paper Cut swinging card but in the shade of pewter.  I was looking to make a masculine card but then stumbled over this paisley patterned paper from The Paper Studio-it matched perfectly.  There's a hint of green in the print so I used one of the Basis card stock line in Basis Olive for the embossed liner and the mat under the stamped image.  The blue accents are done with Basis Lt. Blue and "icing" in Whip Cream again.  I love the Stickles that I Sprinkled on the cupcake and the HB mat!
I'm so lucky to be using these wonderful items-I hope that you will visit The Paper Cut site and check out their Gallery for loads of ideas~  Thanks for looking!
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
