No calorie birthday cake

The slice of cake I made for you today has no calories.  It’s a fun box you can decorate as a party favor or to fill with goodies or a gift card.  The box is made from a die I’ve had for a while and it was time to use it.  One of the great things about the Big Shot is you can use different kinds of dies from different manufacturers.  I die cut the cake slice then embossed with the Finial Press Folder.  I decorated the slice with doilies punched from the new Doily Triple Layer Punch, pearls and ribbon.  I served up my cake slice on a circle scallop plate I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  The candle is made with Very Vanilla card stock then decorated with a strip of Melon Mambo.  I freehand the flame using Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight card stock.  Making this cake slice was a lot of fun.

If you’d like to make a cake slice box but don’t have a die click here for a template.

Summer Mini Sneek Peak

I’m so excited about the new 2011 summer mini.  There are so many new items.  Two of the newest punches are the Triple Layer Punches.  Create three coordinated punch images with just one punch.  The images look beautiful layered together or separately.  There is also a new textured embossing folder – Flower Garden.  I used both these new products in my card below.  I hope you can see I used Dazzling Diamonds on the textured image.  The flower image is gorgeous!  I also used my new Doily Triple Layer Punch to create a border along the side of the card.  I punched one image in white and another in black.  The other new item I used is the frame for the sentiment from the Four Frames set.  This set is available through the end of the month and will not be available until July with the launching of the new catalog.

The sketch from The Paper Players inspired me to create my card.

Here’s my card.
