Wish BIG!



This is my entry for the guest designer spot for My Favorite Things! The challenge... to create a project that was not a rectangle or square...hhmmm.. so, I made a cake. First I drew my own design on some scratch paper, then I picked out some groovy dp. Next, I cut my cake apart like a puzzle and traced onto the dp, then cut again.. same with the icing, only with the icing I used liquid applique to make it look like yummy, puffy icing and I added some crystal fine glitter before heating to give it some sparkle. I then, *put* my cake together and taped it to some solid cardstock and cut out the shape - two layers... one for the card front and one for the card back. The inside is a lighter shade of teal. So... how to turn this into a card... I made a paper *bracket* to attach the card front to the card back and attached it to the bottom layer of the cake, so it opens left to right just like a normal card... whew!! Then guess what.. I don't have any MFT stamps, so I just printed out my own sentiment, layered with the same color cardstock at the outside of card.. and viola! Oh, and I used some regular curling ribbon for the ribbon across the bottom layer of the cake. I call it wish big because the card is rather large at 5" x 8". Hope you like! It sure was fun..
