Flying Cupcakes

I tried my hand at the "Flying Easel" card that I've seen all over the internet!  It was fun and a lot easier to make than I expected it to be!  The trick is finding a symmetrical stamp to hang in the opening.  It would work for butterflies, Christmas trees, stars, ornaments.  I know I'm fickle, but this is my new favorite layout/fold!  If you want to try it, Google, Flying Easel, and you will find lots of tutorials and videos. 

Here is a view of the card closed...

I stamped the cupcakes 4 times on typing paper, colored them with copics and glued them together with a string in the middle.  That way when the card is in the open position, they can be spread out and it gives a real 3-D look to the cupcakes as they swing in the cute!!  It makes me want a cupcake!! 

Thanks for visiting, have a stamping kind of day!
