embossed girly lacy birthday cake

Cray, cray as Tenia would say. I've got a card for nine challenges! I think that's a first. Here she is.


Used my normal creme CS from Folia. Tapped some Frayed Burlap on a block and spritzed it. Smooshed the block onto the CS and got this strange, kinda two-toned blob of browny, pinky color. Don't know if that's a characteristic of Frayed Burlap or what?!? But it was actually perfect cuz it fit my design of creme, pink and kraft perfectly!

I wanted to incorporate the wonky cake from STAMPlorations so decided to heat emboss it onto vellum for a girly feel. Stamped a couple lacy images in pink and brown from an older Viva Decor set. Two-tone heat embossed my sentiment from Party Time and gold heat embossed some splatters I created by first splattering with a glue/water mixture. Added some gold embossing to the bottom edge to match.


Created a funky bow out of lace scrap and gold thread for up top near the stitching and added a PTI heart border snippet too.

I was inspired by all of these challenges:
Addicted to CAS - CAKE

Mimi said...

Very cool card... love the look of it. My Frayed Burlap inkpad is always more greeny to me... wonder if it is the cream CS? Or maybe a bottle of riesling the last time you used the block :)
