Birthday Cake Card








This is just a little fun card that had actually been inspired by Serendipity's challenge for August. There challenge is to build a cake on a layout. I just thought how fun! I also see some cake cards in some forum galleries these days and thought I would try to create my version of it.
Here are the steps.
1) I've hand drawn my own template. Feel free to use it but try to tilt it a bit because my camera is not taking a straight pic of it. But it would be fun too to have a one sided tilted cake too...lol!
2) Trace the cake template to a pattern paper and cut it out. Ink the edges using tattered rose distress ink. I've used some trims and laces to separate the sections of the cake. You could use glue dots to attach your trims or laces to it.

3) Stamp the lower section with a flourishes stamp. Use Stickles to doodle all over the cake for some bling and I've added sequins to the small lace flowers for details. Use a wide sheer ribbon to tie a bow and add a flower in the center. I've used the "Freshen Up your Flowers" technique to create some water droplets on the flower.
4) Trace the overall template on another card stock and cut it out. Paste the pattern paper cake on top of the cut out card stock and you will have your cake on display. Ink the leg with black soot distress ink and add some Stickles to it.
This is such a fun cake card and you can definitely create this kind of card for anniversary or even invitations.

How cool is this? I have a 21st coming up really soon and I think I might have a go at creating this. Instead of the "happy birthday" tag I might add a 21 key. You never cease to amaze me!
