Hi Stampers. I’m back with yet another Card-in-a-Box! This one is filled with Ninja Turtles and princess crowns. It was a custom request from a good friend of mine who makes custom cakes here in Twin Falls, ID. She does AMAZING work!!
She was asked to make a cake for a little girl who liked Ninja Turtles AND Princess stuff. What a combination, huh? You wouldn’t think the two went together, but it came out awesome in her cake and I was able to make a card to match.
The card base is my basic card in a box – done in Basic Gray. (You can find my video and PDF tutorial HERE) The base was covered that with another layer of Basic Gray card stock that I had used the embossing paste mixed with a little bit of Basic Gray ink from the re-inker. I mixed the ink and embossing paste with the palette knives on the silicone craft sheet (because it will clean off easily with soap and water) and then used the pattern party decorative masks – bricks. Hoping it will look like a manhole cover for the top, I added the bricks to a circle.
The Ninja Turtles were done as punch art using circles and oval and the masks were cut by hand with the paper snips. They eyes were done with the retired build an owl punch. The crowns were printed on card stock and cut out with my Brother Scan n Cut (I can’t begin to tell you how much time that things saves me! Awesome gift from my hubby for my 50th birthday!). The balloons were punched out of Pink Pirouette and Perfect Plum card stock.
The back panel has a layer of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with a layer of Whisper White over that. I stamped the sentiment from Epic Celebrations in Island Indigo ink and sponged Perfect Plum ink around the edge with a sponge dauber. The top flaps have a layer of Silver Foil paper and Whisper White card stock over that. The sentiments from Happy Birthday Gorgeous were stamped in Perfect Plum ink.
To the bottom I added a few character from the Magical Day stamp set that were die cut with the coordinating dies and then colored with the FABULOUS Stampin’ Blend markers. I then attached them to the brick layer with glue dots. Glue dots are awesome for attaching to textures such as the glimmer paper and embossed layers.
Here is my card next to Misty’s AMAZING cake! Did I tell you she had talent?!?!
