How To:
1. First cut your Peach Parfait cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”. This will produce two equal halves from a regular 8 ½” x 11” piece.
2. Score cardstock at 4 ¼” using Simply Scored tool or a Bone Folder and fold evenly in half.
3. STAMP! Ink the cupcake stand with black StazOn on Whisper White cardstock. Also in StazOn, stamp the background for the front of the card: two balloons where you can see the balloons and two paper horns. Stamp two balloons on the inside of the card where you would sign. On the Poppy Parade and Concord Crush patterns stamp in StazOn two balloons each. Cut out the four patterned balloons.

4. Using snail adhesive adhere the four patterned balloons where you stamped.

5. Using Stampin Pastels and cosmetic pointed q-tips color in the cupcakes and stand.

6. Cut two strips of patterned Pear Pizzazz paper longer than the width of the card, snip out the ends in a banner shape. Tie Pear Pizzazz ribbon around bottom strip before adhering. Adhere with Snail. Snip ends of ribbon into banner shape.

7. Adhere the colored in cupcake stand with Stampin Dimensionals.
