Project 349: Simple cake birthday card





I have been travelling for work for the past week so I wanted to get back and get a little craft session in. I browsed some challenges and really liked a few that I could combine:




So here's what I did: I colored the cake from a Fishers set that is about 3 years old - it could actually be almost 4 as I think Claire got it for me in autumn 2013 when I was back home for Black Friday...anyway. It's been around for a while. The paper is Recollections Neapolitan stack and this is one of the last little scraps.

The cake is colored with ProMarkers in Yellow, Grass, Pressed Leaf, Cinnamon and Walnut. I die cut using stitched circles and added an extra color to make it stand out a bit more. The cake is enhanced with gold glitter glue and green Enamel Accents from Ranger. I just got this and I LOVE IT. I added the little chipboard star to match the sketch.

The sentiment is a set Claire gave me a while ago, maybe about 18 months?

It was a card of much indecision, which is strange as it's so simple, but I like when I can combine a few things that make me think harder about my choices.
