Cupcakes!!!


Today I'm sharing the new Elephant Slider Set from Art Impressions.

Elephant Slider Set
To create the card I used the Art Impressions Slider die which is sold separately.  The die creates the pocket for the slider.  The sweet elephant was attached to the left side of the slider and the yummy cupcakes to the top of the pocket.  When you pull out the slider....Voila!


I used the small cupcake stamp that comes in the set to stamp randomly for the background.
