Eat Cake and Be Merry!
As usual, my week has been crazy!! I haven't had a whole lot of time in my craftroom, although, it certainly looks like a tornado has been through there!! It is tornado season here in Oklahoma! ;) Today I have another birthday card. I really need to get some layouts done, but that may have to wait till summer vacation. So far, I have kept up with my New Years Resolution to make cards for all of the birthdays and anniversaries in our church and this is one of them!
The card stock is Chocolate and Baby Pink from Close to My Heart. The printed cardstock is from the Sugar and Spice stack from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the dots are raised and glittered!! That stack really has some yummy papers!! The slice of cake is from the Sweet Treats cartridge and cut at 4 1/2" in Chocolate cardstock. The pink layers and cherry are from Core'dinations. For the icing layer I used the sprinkle print cardstock (also glittered!) from the same Sugar and Spice stack. Of course, everything including the slice of cake was inked with Cat's Eye inks in Chestnut. The ribbon is just grosgrain ribbon from Walmart. I used the Pink Stamper cheater method for the ribbon, then tied pink and brown ribbon layered for the bow.
On the inside, I used the Chocolate and Baby Pink cardstock again. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate ink and is from a clear set from Penny Black called "Eat Cake". The extra cake that I also stamped on the envelope was from a clear Changito set from Stampendous.
I hope you have enjoyed this yummy looking piece of cake!! It kind of makes me hungry for the real thing!! Have a great day!
