Shabby Chic Cake


I have a birthday card for you today.  I relied on a digital image by Arina Atelier to pull this one together.  I also used papers from Melissa Frances and the Iralamija Shop.

A piece of Soft Sky paper was cut using a Spellbinders Decorative Label Eight die.  I adhered the Shabby Chic cake image to it and mounted everything to a piece of Melissa Frances' Essie paper.  Happy Birthday was stamped in Chocolate Chip and embossed with clear embossing powder with a heat gun.  It was punched out using the Word Window punch.


The banner was created by layering Spellbinders Nested Pennants with Nested Lacey Pennants.  A couple of cream buttons from my stash give it a vintage look.  A clear Spica pen adds sparkle to the cake frosting and roses.

 
The inside sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I layered Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals and Classic Ovals then added the #50 for her milestone birthday.  The ovals were then mounted to an Action Wobble Spring.  These springs are so cool and when she opened the card the number just popped out at her and wobbled!

 
Thanks for stopping by.  Wishing you a sweet day!

A gorgeous card Donna. The image panel is beautiful - it has so many pretty layers to it. I love the soft colours and the Spellbinders frame is one of my favourites; it always looks so stunning.

Goodness that takes me back! Very nice.

Remember Hollie Hobbie? It was huge in Holland in the 60s but I think it was British or American.

So sweet Donna! I love the detail on the frosting, and your soft, subtle color combination.
