FCCB Challenge # 181--Have Your Cake!


Good morning all!  Time for another challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!  This week's challenge is to make something with a cake or cupcake on it.  Do you know how many Cricut images there are involving cake and cupcakes?  I went on My Cut Search to help me sort them out so I didn't have to look on every page of every cartridge handbook.  I knew when I saw this cute kitty popping out of the cake that it was the ONE!  I don't know why I was surprised--it's on Birthday Bash--one of my favorite cartridges!


I thought this would be a cute image for a 3 x 6 card--finished size is actually 3.25 x 6.5".  The cat/ cake image is separate from the flag image, but they are on the same page in the BB handbook.  I cut the cat/cake image and at 3" wide, which made it 4.69 " tall, so I cut all the layers at 4.69".  The flag image/layer is cut at 2.5".

I wanted my kitty to be orange, because ginger cats are my favorite kind.  So I knew pink and turquoise would look good with it, and of course my cake had to be chocolate!  I also knew I wanted some glitter paper on there.  I used pink for the flagpole and the sentiment, and realized that I also have some orange glitter paper, so the kitty is kind of blingy!  I used pink liquid pearls for the insides of the ears.

CS is PTI Berry Sorbet for the base, CTMH Daisy white, SU Chocolate Chip and Tempting Turquoise and some old SU DP.

I really like this cut and will be using it again.  Why don't you join the fun and play along with us this week?  Simply create anything with a cake or cupcake image and at least one Cricut cut and upload it to FCCB!  Have a great day!
