My first thought when I saw the photo was to do something with crepe paper ruffles, but I was poking around my basket of border punches and came across the Drippy Goo Martha Stewart punch. The wheels started spinning and I ended up with this sweet birthday card:
My first step was to create the cake. The Drippy Goo strips were adhered to a scrap of cardstock, the top edges rounded and then all edges outlined with a thin line of Stardust Stickles.
Then I stamped a sentiment from the My Favourite Things a la Mode Birthday Girl set with Versa Magic Turquoise Gem Chalk Ink on the banner, heat embossed it then inked and stickled the edges.
The pins holding the banner are Maya Road clear pins that have been colored with a Copic marker.
While the stickled edges were drying I tackled the engineering of a cake stand.
After playing around with a few ideas, I settled on using a scalloped border punch, Squiggly Border die and Well Worn Greetings (dies are from My Favorite Things).
This card is heading to a crafty friend who will appreciate the little details - happy birthday Pat!
