MFT May Birthday Project--Delicious Birthday Delights

Birthdays are a perfect occasion for sweet-toothed boys and girls of all ages. 
Cakes and cupcakes lead the charge, of course, bedecked by a festive candle! Join our 
designers this month in creating birthday looks featuring cakes, cupcakes, and candles.

I tried to design a cupcake but didn't have the right dies so I resorted to....
(use your imagination!) a simple birthday cake--chocolate with pink frosting.

Do you see it? I trimmed a piece of Chocolate Brown card stock at an angle
and topped it with a scalloped fringe. Candles were cut from card stock and
shaded to give them some dimension.

The candles were tucked under the "frosting" and adhered to the card.
The flames were cut from yellow card stock and shaded on the bottom for
a bit of interest. You can't see it, but there's a subtle sheen from a shimmer pen
on the flames. A white embossed sentiment and enamel dots finished the card.

Visit the Card Challenges blog for all the details on how you can win a
$50 MFT gift voucher as the random winner of the challenge.
Hope to see you in the gallery!

  1. Yummy chocolate cake! The rainbow color candles and the shiny enamel dots are so cheerful and festive. I see "Donna" in the beautiful and smooth shading of the candles and flames. :-) Hideko
