Hello friends. Today's card is all about the cake, so let's get our cake on and celebrate!
Personally speaking, my favorite cake flavor is chocolate with peanut butter frosting but this one is pretty in pink, don't you think?
Here's what I did:
I started by cutting this Sue Wilson Designs Scalloped Lattice Frame out of white cardstock and mounted it to a pink A2 sized card base.
Next, I cut the Sue Wilson Make A Cake out of white cardstock. I added color to the cake pieces using Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I added the detail to the cake stand by rubbing ink into the grooves of the die while the cardstock was still inside the die. This gave a subtle detail which I really loved.
I assembled the cake using Best Glue Ever. This really is a great glue and it's new at DRU! It dries clear and quickly and gave a very strong bond. I also cut an Elizabeth Craft Designs Dotted Scallop Oval out of white card stock and a blue one using Elizabeth Craft Designs Fitted Ovals.
This is the assembled card.
I mounted the cake using foam dots to give it some dimension.
I enjoyed this cake die so much, I just had to make another birthday card to add to my stash.
I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
The Card Concept ~ Clean & Layered
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Seize The Birthday ~ Anything Goes
Work It Wednesday ~ Something New (Sue Wilson Make A Cake)
