Happy Friday! Katie here today with a little more celebration for Trinity’s birthday month! Happy 3rd Birthday to this awesome company! I am celebrating today with some yummy cake.
Isn’t this a fun cake?! Admittedly, it could be a wedding cake, but I am using it for a birthday. It features some old and new products. Here is how I made it.
First, I used some light teal paper and the Slimline Celebrations Borders to cut out the border on this cake. I used my Blending Buddy and some Peacock Distress ink to make it a little darker in certain areas. next, I made the base of the cake using some white cardstock. I used antique linen ink to color it just slightly to “brown” my cake. Then I ran the layer through my die cutting machine with the Slimline Quilted Cover Die to give it some texture. I used more white to die cut the Slimline Scalloped Card Panel to create my base. I mounted the cake on my base using glue and popped out the frosting using foam tape. Then I used my celebration dies and darker teal paper to create candles and yellow to create flames. I colored the inside of the flame using a Copic. After I mounted them on the panel, I added some highlights with my white gel pen.
Next, I stamped images from the new First Bloom Stamp Set and cut them out using the coordinating First Bloom Die Set. I colored them elements with my Copics (YG25, YG11, YG97, YG95, YG91, RV10, RV21, RV23, Y11). I used a my white gel pen again for more highlights. Then I mounted them on my card with glue and foam tape. I finished it off using glue dots and some Shiny Baubles pearls.
Well I think it is quite a pretty cake, no matter the occasion and I hope you think so too. Be sure to check out the shop for the goodies and more inspiration on the FB page, YouTube, IG AND Pinterest.
Enjoy your Friday and your weekend. ~Katie
