A Christmas card and a cake



Well Saturday again, wow the week went quick. My card today is for the Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club Challenge and you guessed it the theme is "SNOWFLAKES". For my inspiration I thought of my cousin's wedding last August. She had a winter wedding in August....lol. I designed the invitations. And once we realized how much a wedding cake was I decided to offer to do that too. Was I nuts or what!!!! I've never made a wedding cake!




For my card I used the papers left over from her invitations. They had the same colours but were tri-fold. For the cake I used fondant and hand piped each snowflake to make them all look different. I think she was happy in the end. I am entering it at Delightful Sketches - texture (embossed blue paper).

Lori, yet another talent I didn't know you had. You know I will be asking for a favor when we have our Chocolate Tasting Event at the library in February. I was planning on commenting about your card being a stunner and so classic looking and then my jaw dropped when I saw the cake. Are you kidding me??? You even went to the trouble of making each snowflake different. You are awesome, bowing down to you ... you are the queen.

Lori said...

Ha ha (reading Kelly's comment above) BUT, I really DO think you're the Queen!!! I had to go back and forth between reading and looking at the photos to make sure that I was seeing what I saw lol!!! Simply AMAZING, beautifully DIVINE!!! What's next? I'll be by soon : )

Love and hugs ~
Lori
