Since tomorrow is the last day of February, thought of bidding adieu to the Valentine theme with this cute slice of cake topped with strawberries. I used the Sizzix pie box die for the cake slice and cut it out on Papertrey ink’s dark chocolate cardstock. The icing on the side of the cake was also from PTI pink cardstock and trimmed with EK Success scalloped border punch. As for the pink swirls (read chocolate shavings) I just cut thin strips of the same pink cardstock as the icing and used the quilling technique.
Of course since it was a strawberry cake, I made some strawberries from PTI’s Poppy Red cardstock and the leaves with Simply Chartreuse cardstock also from PTI. The template for the strawberries are also downloadable from google; I then embossed the red cardstock with the Swiss dots embossing folder to give it some texture and voila!
Here’s another view;
And a close up of the strawberries. They’re filled with heart candies. I’ve made 3 dozen for Rhea’s classmates as the academic year draws to a close.
Here’s a post for the cute Snowmen Candy wrapper bars from Laurie Furnell’s blog I mentioned in my craft fair section. However, instead of candy bars I used a pack of multicoloured pens. I used felt for their little caps tied the ruffled top with little bells on a silver cord and used the same felt for their scarves and gave the ends a ruffled touch as well.
They tied in nicely with the Valentine theme – especially teacher gifts.
