Have Your Cake & Eat It Too

I created this birthday card using the Sweet Treats cartridge. But I wanted to give a textured, more realistic look and feel so I applied Tulip fabric paint in white metallic to the main body of the cake. I then used my heat embossing gun and gently dried the paint paying mind to allow it to settle back down as it bubbled up. Once I had the white layer complete I moved on to the pink.

For the pink layers I applied Tombo glue and sprinkled on some Distress embossing powder and heat set that as well. The blue swirls were created using Memory Thread.  If you haven't seen this yet look in the aisle where the embroidery thread is kept.  I will say that I have not found it at Michael's - just AC Moore and Hobby Lobby.
