Happy Birthday — Cake Style

The Card Concept has an absolutely beautiful picture of a birthday cake for a theme challenge this go-around.

It is so inspiring, I just had to play along!  You’re supposed to decide which style you want to use, so I’ll go with the Freestyle Collage style.

I have been really drawn to Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana lately.  I should just leave them out on my desk because it seems like every time I go to stamp I reach for those colors.

Birthday Cake FlowersI used some of the Secret Garden framelits dies with some Creped Filter Paper for the flowers.  I used a sponge dauber and my ink pads to color the flowers.  The framelits cut through the Creped Filter Paper beautifully.  I was able to cut through eight layers of it with one pass through the Big Shot.

Enjoy your Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Wow…Wow…Wow…this is a stunner! I really mean it! I love every little thing about this card…it really reminds me of the flowers and the white cake from the photo and is so well designed and put together! I have got to get that needlepoint border too! Love this one.

  2. Oh Wow! Your card is absolutely stunning! The flowers are gorgeous…and what a fabulous technique idea to ink up filter paper! Beautiful and perfectly balanced design. The doily and wee bitt of baker’s twine are the perfect finishing cards for your creation! Thanks for choosing to share your card with us this week at the Card Concept Challenge!
