Find Create a Critter 2 Cupcake with smiley face and cupcake shadow with no face. Place both side by side and weld in the cricut craft room in whatever size desired. The shadow cupcake will be slighly larger I just trimmed the candle and excess off to get the card flush.
Once card is cut next step is to use the Create a Critter 2 cut a cupcake wrapper and candle in the color of your choice.
What I did next is matched a solid color with the wrapper and cut out the Happy Birthday from the Create a Critter 2.
Once all the objects are trimmed and cut out I took a brush and paper plate out and painted on a coat of embossing ink and put on the embossing powder over the top. You might have to do it in sections since the ink dries fast. Of course this sometimes leaves gaps. That is ok I repeated process after heating to cover up. Using a heat gun or heat plate heat up embossing powder. If there is spots not embossed touch it up and reheat areas. Let Cool.
Trace the cupcake with smiley face in the same color as the Happy Birthday sign. That is so the face has color and matches the Happy Bithday sign. Cut out with scissors and glue to the back of the smiling cupcake face. Now your eyes and mouth has color.
Glue cupcake wrapper , candle and glue the Happy Birthday sign to the wrapper. Last using the same color as the eyes smile and Happy birthday free hand a flame to go inside the other flame and you just need to sign the card.
