Cupcake Craft Challenges GDT {Cake and Icecream}

Hi everyone, thank you for visiting today. How is your day going?

This is my third week as a Guest at Cupcake Craft Challenges and the challenge this week is a really fun one - Cake and Icecream! YUM! It gave me a chance to colour up my new "Birthday Tilda" and to try out a "taartpunt" (cake box). I've had the cut file for this for months and haven't tried it out so it was a fantastic opportunity to give it a go.


I've used the Doo Hickey dies "Old Swedish Lace" on the side edge of my card, some of the paper flowers and the leaves. The fabby sketch is from the challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts by Bev.

It is a bit hard to see in the photo, bt the cake and the pink 'satin' parts of Tilda's dress and shoes are all coats in Crystal Effects.

I have finally decorated the inside of a card as well, lol. I always seem to be in a rush to get things done so this time I was determined to finish the card properly.

The heart border is a die from Whiff of Joy. The cherry blossoms and mini roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pink wild rose is Petaloo.

And finally, the cake box by itself.  The papers are a mix of Girls Paperie and MME. All of the edges are distressed with Walnut Stain and stitched.

Sorry, there were a lot of photos today! Thank you for staying with me if you have gotten this far :)

I also want to enter this card into some challenges....
