Marbled Cake!

I just realized I haven't made an actual card for quite a few days now, like a standard sized card. You'll have to bear with me as I get back into the groove. I decided to pull out Eat Cake, there are a few December birthdays in the family, so I might as well get started now!! I was determined to use the Friends and Flowers paper, so I went with those colours. I also wanted to try some of the faux shaving cream technique (Ink your stamp in a light colour, find a wheel with lots of solid images, ink that up in a darker colour, then squiggle the wheel over the coloured stamp- this works best on solid stamps). I used so saffron as my cake base, and swirled chocolate chip overtop. I also used some masking to get the cake into the swirly label. I love putting stuff in those labels, and I noticed that I tend to ignore all the other labels from that set, other than the rectangle. So expect to see some cards in the next few days with the other shapes, as I am keeping that one out on my table. Other notes about this card, I used some of the Flirty ribbon, which is quite dimensional, so my main image had to be put on pop dots . Then the greeting is on popdots on top of that. So, yeah, this isn't a mailing card, I tend to make those...

  1. I love the birthday card. We have some December birthdays here too but sadly, I won't be making this card because I don't have any of these stamps. Just when I think I have everything I want there are more to add to the wish list.
