Layers of Color Cake Decorating Party Hop


Welcome to the

Layers of Color

Cake Decorating Party!


For this special event Layers of Color has created a delicious blog hop showcasing Layers of Color products on cakes, cards or anything fun to help celebrate all February Birthdays.  This is also the month that Laura Campbell (the owner and creative genius behind LOC) welcomed her first grandchild into the world.  Congratulations Laura and family!  

{Ingredients}

In honor of Laura's special news I decided to make a card and cake slice to welcome & celebrate Baby Landon's birth.   I chose to make my own patterned paper by using Layers of Color Botanical Swirls Art Stencil.  To achieve the look simply ink through the stencil with shades of blue ink onto white cardstock.  I used part of the stenciled design for the front of my card.  For the cake slice I printed out a template from Mirkwood Designs and stenciled the pattern on the template before cutting, scoring and folding.


The beautiful frame is one of Layers of Color's collection of stamps that were specifically designed to coordinate with Spellbinders die templates.  The Victorian Frame cling art stamp pairs snugly with Spellbinders Labels Fourteen (which you can get for 15% off if you get an item from the Stamps for Spellbinders Collection).

Sometimes I only think "cards", when I think of Spellbinders dies, but there is so much more you can do. This project is a great example of that.
