Today the design team is using the new It's a Piece of Cake template that is also being released today. And can I just say how ingenious our Claire is! She managed to create a realistic, rounded piece of cake that comes together so beautifully that you'll want to make cake for days! I love it! But...I just couldn't resist the idea of making a wedge of cheese in honor of Waltzingmouse's first birthday. I used several circle punches and my circle dies to create the holes. I simply added a second layer of cardstock inside, adhered with foam mounting tape, to give the holes some depth and make it feel a little more real. I just love it!
I love that this cake comes with a lid and liner, too. It's a great size for a little present and with the liner you can personalize it to your heart's content!
Here's a closer look at my little mouse. He started out as a download from the QuicKutz online store for my Silhouette, but then I colored him with Copics and used my colorless blender to add some furry texture. He's so cute, you almost forget he's a rodent! And check out the fat plaid in the background from the new Picnic Patterns set, releasing today. It's so much fun, you'll love it!
So I'm the last stop on the waltz today. Make sure you leave comments on each blog, as there will be prizes awarded from randomly selected comments - one from Claire's blog and one from a design team member's blog. You have until 11:59 PM EST on Monday, May 3 to enter!
