hello! we made it! welcome back to day five of the papertrey ink january release countdown and one last look at my new pieces of confetti product ensemble this month: fiesta flag birthday. all new products go live in the store tomorrow night! today, i have a fun card with a focus on the cake and all the different icing overlays! i have made real cake icing in pretty much every color imaginable, which led me to this colorful cake card. plus the phrase was begging for cake, cake, and more cake!
as you might remember i love a good rainbow card. often, i like to choose colors that are just "off" the normal shades, with each of the main colors represented in some way, like today. for a little consistency and to let the colorful cakes shine, i opted for soft stone cake plates. once i figured out the layout and colors, i decided on icing detail layers for each cake, which i stamped in the same color as the cake itself.
next, instead of stamping the sentiment on a banner, i decided to die cut the words out of a black banner and adhere that to a white banner so the words would show through - and then i had the idea to glitter them too! to do that, i ran the white banner through my xyron to apply adhesive to cover the front. that way, once i stuck the two pieces together, black on top, the words would still be sticky and ready for clear glitter. press it in, shake it off - easy trick!
finally, i popped the complete banner up on foam tape, strategically placing it below the yellow cake, and finished it all off with a scattering of clear sequins in the open spaces on the card front. i love the tone on tone look of the cakes. plus all that color. color makes me happy! i also love that i was able to decorate each color cake with it's own icing detail. so fun!
i can't say that this is my favorite project from the release, but it's definitely in the running! cake, color, pattern, bling, and a pop of black and white. definitely favorites material! i hope you've enjoyed the countdown as much as i've enjoyed sharing my projects. again, all new product is available tomorrow night - yay! until then, be sure to click on over to the papertrey ink blog and follow all the links today and then check out the reveal scoop tomorrow!
