Decorate a Unicorn Cake!
Hello there, Michelle here and today I have a card to share with you using the Decorate A Cake set that I made in to a shaker card. I thought this would work perfectly with our current Stay Crafty With Hero Challenge, which is to make an interactive card.
I started off my card by taking a panel of Dove White Cardstock and stamping the cake from the Decorate A Cake set on to it using Intense Black Ink. I then took the coordinating die from the Decorate A Cake Frame Cuts set and die cut it out.
Using Ink Blending Brushes, I blended Reactive Inks on to the cake to colour it in rainbow colours. I used Taffy, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, Splash and Thistle. I fussy cut it out, so that there would be no border. I took a top folding card base and placed the panel that I cut the cake from, on top. Using the opening as a guide, I adhered the cake on to the front of the card base.
I then stamped the unicorn ears, horn and flowers from the set on to more white cardstock and coloured them with Copic Markers, die cutting with the coordinating Frame Cuts.
I took an Acetate Card Panel and stamped the unicorn eyes on to it with Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Detail Black Embossing Powder and heat set. This particular acetate, unlike many others, is heat resistant for both heat embossing and hot foiling techniques. (Although it's out of stock at the moment, you can enter your email in the "notify me" box on the product page – we expect it back in the shop in just a few days!)
The panel was then adhered to the back of the cake window panel that I created earlier, with tape runner.
I sprinkled Snowfall Glitter on top of the cake on the front of the card. I then added foam tape to the back of the acetate panel piece and adhered it down on top to create the shaker. I added the ears, horn and flowers to the card with thin foam tape.
I also stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Sending Love Mail set on to Pitch Black Cardstock with Detail White Embossing Powder. It was cut in to two strips and added to the card with foam tape.
We hope that you will check out the Stay Crafty With Hero Interactive Card Challenge this month before it closes on August 5th. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy stamping!
