Layers of Color Cake Decorationg Party!!


Welcome
to the

Layers of Color

Cake Decorating Party!
We have a line-up of fantastic crafting chefs who will inspire you to get into your creative kitchens and whip up some delicious artwork! Our party hostess is Gunn Thelin Knutsen who is generously sharing her cake template with us today! Come whet your appetite with her creative paper cake slice boxes that are marvelously decorated with Layers of Color.

This is truly how you can have your cake and eat it too! Enjoy a tasty cake fresh from the oven,
while being creative with Layers of Color, pretty papers, laces, flowers, and even jewelry!
The cake slices were made with Prism Papaya Puree Light cardstock. One of the flower images from LOC's Merci Bouquet set was stamped with Versamark onto the Papaya Puree paper, embossed with clear ep, cutout, and attached to each side of the cake slice. A gold pearl was added to the flower centers. Lace was adhered to the top edge, gold pearls were added along with pearl and rhinestone flourishes. The flowers on top were created using LOC's Flowering Gems set...the flowers were stamped on the K&Co. Life's a Journey dp, cutout, distressed a little, layered with dimensionals, and the edges were covered with Diamond Stickles. Gold pearls were added to the centers. The leaves from the same set were stamped on Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime dp, cutout, edged with Diamond Stickles, and attached to the under sides of the flowers.



The birds from LOC's Birdday Party set were also stamped on the Graphic 45 paper and attached to the copper wires that were curled around a pencil. The wire was wrapped around the seam binding bows and gold cording before they were adhered to the cake slice so they looked like they were floating.



The cupcake card was made with the free cupcake template Laura is giving away for the party!! The base paper was run through a crimper so it would look like a cupcake liner. The small flower stamp from LOC's Merci Bouquet set was stamped and embossed on the *frosting* and the sentiment and birds are from LOC's Birdday Party set.
