Can you believe that it's the second month of the year already??? Time just seems to go by faster and faster. With another month comes another stamp of the month which is always exciting! If you've come here from Nona's Blog your on the right track. If not continue on the hop, which is one big circle and you'll make it to all the sites. This month the stamp set is "Piece of Cake" and it's a delicious assortment of cakes to dress up any birthday layout or card.
I've got several upcoming birthdays for family members so this is perfect timing for this set for me. This month I've made two different things to show you.
The first is an explosion box using Topstitch paper. This is a fun 3 dimensional type card I'll be giving to my sister. The outside of box has one of the cakes and also the For You sentiment from the set.
Once you take the box top open the box unfolds and reveles a couple of cakes standing up in the middle and a couple on the sides. Birthday wishes are stamped along the outside.
The second card is a three dimensional stair step card that is also fun. This one is for my mother-in-law. The paper is Veranda from the new Spring catalog. It is so versatile and gorgeous!
