With a Strawberry on Top

Cake with strawberries?  Yes please!!  Cake with a little Gerbil popping out of the center?  Ummmm…sure, why not!  How much more adorableness can one take!

This is the March Club La-la Land kit.  I hope you got in on the club subscription for this one.  If not and you want it, read below.  

Here is a closeup of the little gerbil with flour all over his widdle cute face.  He has been a busy guy.

Creating the Card

I wanted some larger strawberries to place around the sentiment so I got out my “out of the box” thinker.  Ah, HAH!  The unicorn ears, and eyelashes!  Below you will see the pieces I used to create this!  Don’t you love multi-purpose stamps and dies?

Here is a peek at the dies I used to create the bigger strawberries.  After die cutting the image on white cardstock I colored them up with my Copic markers.

Cake Assembly

I used the fabulous cake piece dies from the Club kit to build the multi-layered cake and before I assembled it I colored the large pieces of cake with a gray markers to add the shading and shadows.  The “wrapper” from the cupcake die was perfect to create the cake stand.

Using my Nuvo Ivory Seashell, I added the tiny dots to the cake pieces and then added strings of pearls above the red  “frosting”.

A slit was cut in the top cake tier and I slipped that little gerbil in the opening.  Some white gel pen was applied to create the flour on his face.

The Nested Frames were perfect as a center piece to place the cake onto.  I love how this card, event though it has a simple layout, is such a fun wow card.
