Waltzingmouse July Blog Waltz




 Greetings, Waltz partners!  Here is my entry into Waltzingmouse's July Blog Waltz, which features a birthday party theme.  Since it is supposed to be a party, there has to be cake, so I made a matching piece of cake (gift box) using the Waltzingmouse "A Piece Of Cake" template.  The cake on the card was made by die cutting a Spellbinders Labels 6 out of patterned paper, and trimming off the bottom third.


These colors are a little out of my comfort zone, but I thought they should be bright and cheery for a party. The card stats are as follows:

Stamps:  WMS Say It Loud, WMS Sewing Box Hugs, Pic Nic Patterns (plaid texture on cake box top)
Patterned Paper:  from DCWV "Citrus"
Card stock:  white, sponged with yellow and green SU inks (cake bottom)
Markers:  Copic, shading on cake
Accessories:  shrink plastic, stamped with flowers then cut out and painted with tangerine acrylic paint, then stamped again with Stazon black; shrunk and painted with aqua opaque pen.  Candle embellishment from my stash.  White vintage cotton ric rac and seam binding, dyed tangerine with alcohol inks.  Miniature tangerine ric rac, given to me by my mother for card making.  Spellbinders Labels Six (layer cake) and Fancy Labels (cake stand).

Well, I've enjoyed the dance, now on to your next dance partner!

  22. What a creative way to make a cake (and since I don't have the cake set yet, it's a great idea!!) Your shading on the cake makes it look so 3D that it looks like fabric that has been stuffed like a pillow: great shading!!
