You take the cake.....



I went to The Range on Thursday and picked up 3 new Dovecraft paper packs-Back To Basics, Piece Of Cake & Eastern Promise- and this card is made with the Piece of Cake pack. Its full of yummy, cakey papers as well as standard spots & stripes. For this card I used the diagonal cut front type card, but I also cut about 3/4" off the front of the card so that it is narrower than the back. I used a MS punch along the diagonal cut edge. I covered the inside of the card with spotted pink paper and the front with the cake print paper. I also added a border enhanced with an MS punch, ribbon & layered bloom with a co-ordinating big brad at it's centre. The brads are also part of the collection. The cupcake shadow was cut from brown cardstock & the cupcake itself from pink & brown glittercard with a red glittercard cherry on the top. The completed cake was adhered the card with foam pads. I tried cutting the sentiment from glittercard but my Bug wasn't having any of it! So I gave up, not being able to bear any more wasted glittercard, and cut it from brown cardstock. After adhereing it to the card and after the glue had completely dried, I ran a glue pen over the sentiment and threw brown glitter over it. Job done! I added a white sentiment panel to the inside of the card, making it small enough not to show when the card is closed.
