Mr Cardmaker is Back on the Boards

Yesterday, I told you about the Pinterest inspiration that led me to make this card.

The inspiration piece looks like this--

Meine kreative Welt...: " den besten Wünschen"
and it comes form THIS BLOG. (Give credit where it's due! Thanks, Heike!)

Well, I made another one. That cake just got into my brain....
I made this--

And it HAD to be CHOCOLATE, right? I'm pretty sure you're with me on this.

BALLOONS! How fun! I love these PTI Balloon images. Nothing as wonderful as a big, fat, bright, round balloon. And cake. Don't forget the chocolate cake.
My cake is fussy cut and popped up on the front there, and totally coated with Glossy Accents.
The star is a separate stamp, but it's fussy cut and Glossy Accented, too.

Maybe this view is better--

Oh, and the inside--

The cake is brown, but it's pretty dark and looks black in this photo...
I went outside the lines on those candle flames, thinking they'd look like "glow." I think it worked!

Chalk up another birthday card for the stash!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
All Best--


  1. Oh wow - I just love those balloons. You did a wonderful job on them! I gotta tell you though, as much of a chocolate freak as I am, and I'll admit I am, cake is the one thing I don't like chocolate. Weird huh? Great card!

  2. Richard, your cards are amazing!! Especially love the backgrounds on the first two!! You are a true artist!

  3. This is wonderful.
    "You can't be uncheery with a balloon!" I'm thinking Winnie The Pooh, but googled it and got nuthin!
