Hey, everyone! I'm here to share a layout I created for this month's Adspiration challenge. Here's what I came up with:
And here's the ad that inspired my layout:
I knew immediately when I saw this ad that I wanted to make layered cake and a birthday layout, and I wanted to use the blue from the blueberries, so I checked to see if I had any birthday pictures that would go with blue, and I found one. Then, I went searching through my papers and came some papers by My Mind's Eye. One of the floral papers had these circular designs that reminded me of the blueberries, so I decided I'd fussy cut them and top my cake with blueberries.
I mimicked the gold cake topper with some glittery gold letters from my stash.
The melted frosting inspired me to add some vellum punched with a border punch on each of the layers.
Finally, the metal cake stand in the add inspired me to use some silver metallic papers I had in my stash. I added a lacy border-punched strip in white and some rhinestones for festive sparkle.
I made my own tiered cake but if you want an some awesome free cut files for a party-inspired layout, Paper Issues has one called Party Animal, which has cupcakes and a slice of cake, along with some titles and other elements.
I hope you'll give this add a try. Besides the obvious birthday layout, the possibilities are endless. I can't wait to see what you'll make!
