Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week we have a gorgeous, yummy looking cake! Wouldn’t this be a treat for your birthday?
The flowers in the Happiness Abounds stamp set just seemed perfect for this challenge! I tried to duplicate the colors, too! And the string represents the “dripping” technique on the cake! lol!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Flirty Flamingo cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was added on top.
- A 2-1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Hues of Happiness Designer Paper was added to the left side.
- The flowers and leaves from Happiness Abounds were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Basic White cardstock. The large flower colored with Melon Mambo Blends and center with Old Olive Blends, the two smaller flowers with Flirty Flamingo Blends, and the rose was highlighted with Light Petal Pink Blends. The leaves were colored with Old Olive Blends. All were cut with the Dies.
- Some White Baker’s Twine was wrapped in a circle several times, then added to the base card with a Stampin’ Dimensional to hold in place.
- The flowers/leaves were put in place.
- Happy Birthday was stamped with Old Olive Ink on 1/2 x 3 piece of Basic White and the end trimmed at an angle. It was popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of In Color Opal Rounds were added to the background.
LOVE the shades of pink on this card! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
