Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz - Birthday Wishes
Today I'm participating in the Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz taking place in the WMS forum. The theme this month is birthdays! Check it out here in the Playroom of the Forum.
Maggie Austin Cake.
The fold of the card was inspired by Saturday's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge to use the Joy Fold for your card.
I stamped the top 3/4s of the cake with Versamark and the bottom piece with dark cocoa ink - then I put white embossing powder on the top pieces and clear embossing powder on the chocolate piece and embossed the cake with my hot gun. Finally, I stamped the cake plate with Versamark and embossed it with silver embossing powder.
The cake panel is tucked under the sentiment circle on my card. When you slip the cake panel out, it opens up to show the inside of the card.
You'll find the Joy Fold Tutorial on Split Coast Stampers in the forums here.
My stamps are from a fun new set by Waltzingmouse called Eat Cake
Now I'm off to the WMS forum to blog waltz and see all the fun birthday card inspiration! Are you coming?
