Karen Burniston's August 2016 Designer Challenge "Flour or Flower "

Good morning friends

It's time for the August Designer Challenge "Flour or Flower' ...  Make a card with flowers OR make a card with a baking/cooking theme - you decide! What a FUN challenge! I opted for 'Flour' and this is what I came up with.

I can't tell you how much fun it was making this card. I just smiled the whole time it was coming together.  Sweet Baker has been busy baking and decorating a birthday cake, and the card base is a Stand Up card made with the Rectangle Pull Card die.

Here is the card in the closed position, ready to be put in an envelope.

I love it when I can get extra use out of my dies, and using the Rectangle Pull Card as a Stand-Up (or Easel) card is a great example of that. Also the cake layers - they are supposed to be layered onto the Cake Pop-Up but they also work great as a flat embellishment!

The little slice of cake was cut from Soft Finish Card Stock, then brushed with Wink of Stella (several coats). It looks so SHIMERY - I love it. The fork was coloured with a metallic marker.

I added a second oval inside the opened card as a spot to sign the card, and another little cupcake to carry on the cake theme.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Designer Challenge team has come up with for this challenge. Karen Burniston will have her post on her BLOG tomorrow (Tuesday).

Thanks for stopping by today


  1. so great. size of the card and fols?

    1. Thanks! As listed below the supplies, the card is 6 x 5". I believe it's actually 5" across and 6" long. So the card base was cut at 5" wide, 9" long because to do any of the Pull Cards you add 3" to the size you want your card to be. It was scored in the centre, at the 4-1/2" mark, then I used the Rectangle Pull card to cut the front so it would stand up. Hope that helps!

    2. thanks so much
