Have your cake...

is the theme this week at Fantabulous Cricut! Even if you don't have a specific event you need a card for, it's always good to have a couple of cake cards in your stash. They can be used for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or even congratulations. Here's my creation for the week.

I used the cake from the "Best of 2010" Cricut cartridge. There is a combination of old and new to me papers. The solids are Recollections and the prints are from Crate Paper and one other I can't remember. The background piece with the arrows and the frosting for the cake are the front and back of the same piece. The color scheme is not my norm, but I thought I'd try to break out of my box a bit and try something a little different.

I used Dimensional Magic on the frosting to make it look a little shiny. The cut sprinkles were placed onto the wet "magic" and left to dry. They stayed on top so there is a bit of a difference in the look that you can see better on the actual card. The bling in the corners is from WalMart.

I really need to get some Halloween stuff going. That will probably be my next post! Have a good week everyone.


  1. Great card! I love the color combo, and the corners the bling is on (was that a cut or punch?).
