I love birthdays. And cake. And making cards. And things that are a little off and make you take a second look. Yup, um-hmm.
Welcome to another MaKe iT MoNdAY! I’m so excited to share another card with you today, one totally inspired by the new Top Dog Dies, the Make a Cake die set to be exact!
When I saw the adorable die, I loved that it had a banner to go with it! Talk about being on trend! Along with the banner, the die includes 2 skewers for perfect placement of the banner atop the cake!
I took two layers of the cake and ended up making the top layer just a touch smaller. I cut the cake layer out the first time, then adjusted the die over, exposing about an inch of the cake. I love how cute it turned out! I was feeling inspired by Alice in Wonderland, so I wanted the cake to feel a little topsy-turvy and the colors to reflect the eclecticism.
The details really couldn’t be any cuter! Check out the flames on the candles – perfection!
So many times I try to squeeze too much into my day and end up feeling like the White Rabbit in Alice… “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!” What’s your favorite Alice character?
Be sure to continue the Make It Monday circle and head on over and maybe have a cup of coffee with Alison at Day Designs. She’s showing how she used a new card kit until it was all gone. Good to the last drop isn’t just for coffee anymore!
As always, thanks for stopping by my little colorful spot on the web! Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
PS. When I read “Homegrown Summer” over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, I knew I had to link up! Check out the card inspiration over there! Yum!
