No, I’m not cooking a spice cake today, but I am in love with the Spice Cake DSP in the latest mini catalogue!! The pictures really don’t do it justice.
I’m attempting to be more organised this year and actually send out more birthday cards this year. To this end, I’ve been thinking about a birthday card folder where I can get the cards ready at the start of the month, including addressed, stamped and written in and then just be able to whip the card out a week before and post it off.
I’ve had lots of cardboard used as stiftening for projects so I thought it would make a good base for the folder. I was going to use a different DSP for each month but I fell in love with Spice Cake so the whole book will be the same paper. I’m also using the matching stamp set, Spiced Paisley.
Of course, my photo really doesn’t do it justice but you get the idea. I’ve usedthe Timeless Type Alphabet Junior Sizzlits for the title and the very glittery Silver glimmer paper. There’s also the new velvet ribbon for the border and flowers.
Here’s close up of each page. Special birthday’s are indicated by a rhinestone.
I’ve still got a few pages to go but I’ve run out of paper!! And I think I might need some bigger rings as well.
