We're kicking off a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. The lovely Jo is our hostess and her theme for this challenge is 'Flowers.' We have two sponsors for this challenge: Magnolia-licious and Sweet Lilac Flowers. To get complete details on the challenge, the prizes being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog. And don't forget to check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.
A 'cake card' has been on my to-do list for the longest time and I finally got around to making one.
This first photo is the view of the card from the top.
The spine of the card has been increased to the same height as the cake.
When the card is displayed like an easel card, a small candle-filled box and a cake are revealed.
The birthday candles goes into the holes on the cake.
There are probably a few tutorials on how to make this type of cake card--but here's a link to a tutorial that I like, created by Kathryn at the Stempeleinmaleins website, HERE.
A close-up of the Magnolia Stamps image being featured.
She is called Rose Cake Tilda from the Boho Collection 2015
The stamp for this image is available from our sponsor Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
