How To:
1. Cut Calypso Coral cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (which will produce two equal halves),
2. Fold cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2",
3. Cut patterned Sweet Shop DSP to  2 3/4",
4. Punch Scallop Edge Border into top edge of DSP,
5. Select two spots to pierce for brads, insert brads,
6. Wrap Lucky Limeade ribon several times around DSP and slip underneath brads, tie into a knot, cut a few 2" strips of the ribbon and tie under the knot.
7. Curl the ribbon ends gently with the dollar store scissors, trim to desired length,
8. Adhere the decorated DSP to  the Calypso Coral cardstock using SNAIL,
9. Using your Stampin Write markers, directly color onto the cupcake image, huff (breathe open mouthed onto) the ink to remoisten it,
10. Stamp colored image on scrap or piece of Whisper White Cardstock, this may take more than one attempt if you are not happy with the outcome, remember to huff a lot onto that cupcake!
11. Mount the sentiment you want to use on a clear block, color it with markers, huff, and stamp into the open box on the cupcake image.
12. Cut out the cupcake image with Paper Snips leaving an even border around it,
13. Ink entire cupcake image with VersaMark,
14. Quickly dump clear embossing powder over VersaMarked image while holding over Powder Pal tray,
15. Use Heat Tool to emboss the image to a shiny finish, I recommend doing this under a lamp so you can see when enter image is embossed.
16. Trim another pattern of the DSP to fit beneath the cupcake image.
17. Mount cupcake onto DSP with Snail, mount entire image with four foam Dimensionals.
