Cake Day Cardmaking Workshop

Who doesn't need an ample supply of birthday cards throughout the year? Our Cake Day cardmaking workshop is all you need to be ready to celebrate friends and family throughout the year with 16 interactive birthday cards!!
This kit includes an exclusive stamp set and coordinating thin cuts to create bright, fun, and interactive elements on your cards. You can use this stamp set and thin cuts on future projects with any color theme or paper pack you choose! And the interactive cake doesn't have to be birthday related, it can be for any occasion there is cake! Wait, you mean like every day? YES, I could eat cake every day! LOL!


The workshop, as designed by Close To My Heart features the use of our water color pencils to color in elements on t
he cards. I cut all of my papers and pieces the same, but used markers, liquid pearls, shimmer brushes and texture paste to play around with a few alternative cake decorating methods! I have added notes to each image to show what I did different. Feel free to use my ideas or come up with even better alternatives! 


Here are the extra supplies I used on my card: White Opal and Bisque liquid pearls and Pimary Sprinkles (for cake frosting), Sundance Shimmer brush (on candle flames).



I used the Sundance, Lemonade, and Clear Shimmer Brushes on the pennants and images. (I would have used the Wild Berry shimmer brush, but I didn't have one on hand.) You can also add individual sprinkles to the card with a tiny dab of Liquid Glass.



I tried a different method of "frosting" my cake with texture paste colored with Distress Oxide Ink and accented with Bisque and Rose Gold Liquid Pearls and Primary Sprinkles. I would recommend the gloss texture paste colored with Mocha or Espresso re-inker for a more glossy effect. Or just the Liquid Pearls, they make great frosting!


On the fourth card, I used our Tri-Blend markers to "frost" the cake and accented with the Sundance Shimmer Brush.

Order your Cake Day Cardmaking Workshop HERE! You can also join Close To My Heart for a live Facebook workshop on their page, April 5th at 4:00pm eastern time, to cut and assemble the cards as they designed - they always offer great tips and tricks in each demonstration! Happy Cake Day!!
