I can't believe it.
I no longer am the mom of a "Teenager" -- my baby turned 20 on Saturday!
Because this is an extra-special event, I wanted to make an extra-special card for her.
I started out by finding a tutorial for a "cake" card here (hit their Translator button when you arrive):
Cake Cards Tutorial
And got to work. First I chose the image -- I can't believe this is the first time I have inked up my Tilda with Wedding Gifts stamp! She is so cute for birthday cards too!
Next, the papers. I was so lucky to find some great Bo Bunny (my fav!) paper that was PERFECT for the cake top. It had a circular design that I simply cut out and "frosted" with Scribbles 3D white fabric paint. As a matter of fact ALL the patterned paper on the card are from Bo Bunny's "Sophie" line. Some really old embossed paper I got from Michaels back in 2006 called Vine Cream was used to create the easel card base and the cake itself.
The side of the cake is decorated with Martha Stewart's Double Loops edge punch. I also glued some Recollections flowers to the sides, attached the cake to a Wilton doily and finished off the bottom edge of the cake with more 3D white paint to mimic frosting. Other supplies used on the card include Michaels satin ribbon coloured with Copic BG49, ColorBox inks, Martha Stewart Fern punch, Recollections floral spikes, and Diamond and Milled Lavender Stickles on the prezzies.
Since this card is quite bulky, I made a box from white cardstock. The measurements of my card is 6" X 6.5", so I cut two pieces of 8.5" X 11" paper: one 8.5" X 8" and a second slightly larger for the top: 8.5" X 8 1/8". After scoring 1" on every side, folding, cutting and adding ScorTape to the flaps, viola! I have a box to transport the whole shebang without scrunching it up!
BG45, BG49, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C6, E0000, E01, E02, E30, E35, E37, RV11, RV14, RV93, RV95, RV99, Y11 and Y21
I hope she likes it -- er, for more than the rolled up gift, that is ;)
Not A Laughing Matter At ALL, But...
