My Favorite Things July Release Countdown: Day 3

We’re at the halfway mark! There’s a whole new round of fabulous products being shown today on the MFT Blog, including the new fabulous Celebrate With Cake Die-namics.

In celebration of MFT’s anniversary month, I picked their signature colors to decorate this card: pink, black, and white. After die-cutting the stand and pink frosting ribbons from white card stock, I started with my coloring. Beginning with Copic Markers R81, R83, and R85, I colored the pink frosting. I then used Copic Markers N5, N3, and N1 to color the cake stand, and cool gray Polychromos to add fine shadow lines.

I used Tickled Pink card stock for the cake, blending Cotton Candy ink on the edges. I used Slate card stock for the black frosting ribbons, adding shading with Copic Markers N8, N4, and N2. Lastly, I used Black Licorice card stock for the Celebrate cake topper. I die-cut the word Celebrate three times, stacking and gluing them together for added dimension.

I used Tickled Pink and Cotton Candy ink with the new Card-Sized Star Confetti Stencil Set to make a fun background. I added a wide strip of Black and White pattern paper, and a thin strip of Tickled Pink card stock to the panel before die-cutting it with a stitched rectangle Die-namics. I used foam adhesive to attach the panel to a white card base, then adhered the cake to the card with glue. My final touch was adding shimmer and Crystal Glaze to the frosting ribbons and Celebrate cake topper.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see more sneak peeks of the July release.  Everything you see this week will be available on Release Day –  Tuesday, July 9, at 10am EST. Thanks for stopping by!
