Spots of Spice Cake

Sometime last week I was walking through Bed, Bath & Beyond with hubby and Baby Moose when I happened across this fun little pillow.

As soon as I saw it, I just had to snap a quick photo because I knew the design would inspire something awesome. And it did!

I had been wanting to create a card that incorporated rosettes and some fun fabric flowers I had made (more on those later), and the pillow quickly inspired the perfect design that would let me incorporate both!

This card came together so effortlessly, it was fabulous! And the fun design of random circles went so perfectly with the rosettes and fabric flower I had made, I couldn’t have planned it! The one thing I did plan was using my current favorite Spice Cake Designer Series Paper. The different designs and colors of that paper coordinate so beautifully, I don’t think this card would have worked as well had I used anything else (though I still plan on trying…haha).

The card was actually fairly easy to make. I used my 3/4″ and 1″ circle punches to punch out some circles of Spice Cake DSP. Then I created two rosettes using the same DSP (for a full tutorial on creating rosettes, check out the November issue of my newsletter). For fun, I threw in a Spice Cake Designer Fabric flower on the card as well. It took a little arranging and rearranging to get the layout of the circles, rosettes, and fabric flower just right. But once the layout was perfect, I just adhered everything down and voila! The Thank You sentiment (from the Thank You Kindly set) in the corner just added that beautiful final touch.

I featured this card and the favor box in my latest newsletter to show off how rosettes can be used on different projects. You can see how I added a button and crystal onto the rosette on the favor box for a little fun and flair.

But I also wanted to feature my new fabric flowers, too. You can spot a brown one on my Thank You card, as well as a Pool Party one on this favor box. I created the flowers using some Spice Cake Designer Fabric. They are super easy to create and make fabulous embellishments for all sorts of projects! Want to learn how to make your own?
