Honeycomb Birthday Cake
by Jeanne Jachna

Did you know the most popular card people send is a birthday card?   They come in all shapes and sizes and always bring a smile to recipients! :P
I've told you this before.. I love to play card challenges that I find on line!  It's always fun to see the different ways people interpret the sketch or photo.  I'm playing along with the new Fusion Card Challenge that begins today.   It's a great way to find inspiration and to challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone.   Here's a peek in case you want to play along too! 
I was immediately drawn to the clean cake, the honeycomb pattern and Swoon!  The GOLD!   But how to turn this into a card? 
There is lots of white in the inspiration photo so I started by cutting the Honeycomb Curve from a piece of white card stock.  I inked a smaller panel with ombre shades of distress ink to fit behind the open die cut panel.
I cut the Frosted Cake die from white card stock.  I set the cake pieces aside and used a cosmetic brush to apply ink to the frosting.
I assembled the cake and adhered it to the assembled card base.  I adhered the top layer of the cake with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension.
The finishing touch is the GOLD!  I cut the Musical Happy Birthday from gold foil and gold glitter paper.  I stacked the two for lots of sparkle and shine.  Why the Musical Happy Birthday?  Because if it's your birthday, and I'm calling you, I'll be singing! 
Yum right?   I challenged myself to use colors and die cuts that I wouldn't normally use together and WOW!  I'm delighted with the end result!  What will you make today?
