Chocolate Birthday Cake [CTMH Blog Boosters]


The new Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book from Close to My Heart is now available.   In order to introduce some of the new products, a select group of Close To My Heart consultants will be sharing their creations in this CTMH Blog Boosters Blog Hop.  A thumbnail of each participant's creation is shown in the Linky list below.  Simply click on a thumbnail to go to their blog post with detailed information. 

And we all LOVE to read comments about our work, please 'give us some love' by leaving a quick comment telling the artist your favorite part of their project.


The fun striped paper on the background is from the new Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment.  These double-sided sheets have the same design on both sides, one side with glossy resist pattern.  The card sketch is 'City Scape' from the Wishes Card Confidence Program.  Several images from the Belated Birthday stamp set are used, with the cake stamped three times so that two different colored layers could be cut and placed on the base image for a colorful frosted cake.  A strip of Washi Tape adhered to White Daisy cardstock and then placed on the card provides a pop of texture and color.  


Be sure to visit all the blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas! 


All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

  1. Great card. Love the tip about putting washi tape on cardstock so you keep the true colors of the washi.
