Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors
How has your week been? Not much has happened here but then that is not surprising.
Last week my friend was asked to make a birthday cake for one of her neighbours. She wasn't given much notice and she asked if I could make a cake topper and a small card. I found out that he is a Saints (Southampton) fan and their colours are red and white. I do like a challenge I had never made a cake topper before.
Let's start with the card. It was good to know that he is a Saints fan. The backing paper was on my computer. I did smudge the middle of the footballs with a Posca pen. I used the Stitched flags and the Happy Birthday sentiment from Creative Expressions. The numbers are John Next Door dies and the letter for the name were made with Crafter's Companion dies. The red and white paper was also printed from the computer. It was a Christmas paper.
This is the cake topper. I used Tonic dies to cut out the circles. I used red glitter card and white pearl paper. The topper is double sided it looks the same on both sides. In the middle is a kraft card circle that I could glue the other circles to. I also cut a slot for the stick so that would lay a bit more flat. I used a mix to dies to make the message.
Here is the cake. I think the topper works quite well.
Andy liked his cake. He wasn't quite so thrilled about Saints the previous evening they had lost 9 - 0. Opps. Can you see his front door is red?
I did enjoy making this project. I find it much easier to make things when I have a purpose.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
I hope you have a good weekend.
