Slice of Cake Birthday Card

Today is my grandson Thaddeus' 19th birthday. One of the things he loves is chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, matter of fact that is my favorite cake as well. The perfect slice of cake is found on the From My Kitchen cartridge. Using the Provocraft Gypsy and Baby Bug I was able to make him the perfect birthday card ( 6 1/4 X 5 1/4).

Angelica's 1st Birthday Card

My baby granddaughter Angelica is going to be celebrating her first bithday on January 4th. With the Provocraft Gypsy and Expression I was able to design a cake shaped card for her.

Front and Back

Card and Envelope

Using the Gypsy and the Celebration cartridge I was able to make a cake shaped card by welding the #1 shadow to each cake shadow then welding the flipped cake shadow back to the cake shadow front. Deep Pink (DCWV) cardstock was used.

The cake was cut in a pastel Pink (DCWV). For the layered white frosting White (DCWV) was used and the edges inked with Rangers Spun Sugar Distress Ink.

The cake parts were embossed using the Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug folders Polka Dots (pink) and Divine Swirl (white). The #1 is embellished with Ranger Stickles Cotton Candy.

 Storybook cartridge was used for the Birthday Girl sentiment.

The A7 envelope was made using the Martha Stewart Scoreboard and  K & Company paper.
