I inserted ONLY the front of the card base (the cupcake wrapper part) into my Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder.
And......Wa-La! Now on this card, I obviously did not emboss the icing layers. I thought that would be overkill, LOL. But I did put the 1" circle through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder, and then trimmed it to resemble a strawberry instead of a cherry. If you follow my tutorial, this card WILL fit into an A2 card size envelope (4.25" x 5.5")
Another option is to put the cupcake base through a paper crimper. That would also be much easier than trying to do even angled scoring lines.
Now that it's not so intimidating, you should be making your own cupcake - go for it! And don't forget to leave me a link so I can see!
Thanks for playing, Tootles!
