Because the only thing better than cake is, of course, more cake.
Eat Cake Graphics's Fargo Fradey can hear a crumb drop from a mile away, and that certainly gets him up and running! I hope you can tell in the picture, but this is a REALLY 3-D card-Fargo is attached to a wire spring:
I mean, 3-D running dog, my favorite paper pack of all time (SU's Washington Apple), and someone talking about cake? Until they develop edible cake paper, what more could you want in a card?
Fargo was stamped three times onto PTI's Harvest Gold. I added some shading with Copic Y21, and used prismacolor pencils on his eyes, nose, and tongue. Then I cut him out in layers (his back legs and tail; his body and front legs; and his head) and attached using foam tape. I got the idea for the spring from my Scrapbook Embellishment Handbook. I wrapped a piece of wire around a pencil about eight times, then used 3-D glue dots to embed each end of the wire and attach to the card and to Fargo:
Now, I'm not really sure what happens when you go to mail this--would the glue dots just stick to each other or would the spring be wide enough to keep them apart--so maybe it's an in-person type of card. Although right now it's a keep-on-my-desk-there-is-no-one-worthy-of-this-card type of card.
Anyway, to finish it up, I added a row of the square paper to the bottom and added the Eat Cake Graphics sentiment, stamped in SU Bashful Blue.
And to finish my "Someone Say Cake" series, a quick fun CAS card:
Feathers MacGee wants to get in on some cake action, too! For this card, I used PTI's Sunshine Impression plate on Harvest Gold cardstock (although this plate always makes my card wonky--does anyone know any tricks to help it stay flat?). Then I cut out another piece of Harvest Gold using Nestabilities Labels 4 and stamped Mr MacGee onto it, and did some quick Copic coloring. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Danube Blue. I added a Labels 4 frame from some old SU patterned paper, popped up on pop-dots.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday, and maybe even enjoying some cake!
