Shabby Chic Birthday Cake

Happy Saturday all!  It is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog plus today is extra special because it is my birthday!  I decided I would make my very own birthday cake for the occasion ;)
 I started out with a 3D birthday cake file from SVG Attic's SDS 3D Cake Box Kit and papers from DCWV's Country Floral stack.
The three tiers are made with different papers and the flowers match the pink and yellow roses on the middle tier.  The small flowers were created using the Wooly Blossom 5 Petal Flower from SVG Attic's JGW Winter Wonderland set. For those, I cut 2 layers of petals at 1.5" each.  I spritzed them with water, scrunched them and let them dry before assembling.
The cake topper rose is much more full, but it also is created from the Wooly Blossom 5 Petal Flower from SVG Attic's JGW Winter Wonderland set.  I used 8 layers on this one, two of each of the following sizes:  2.36", 2",  1.64",  1.28".  I also misted these with water and scrunched them prior to assembly.
The fun part is that the bottom two tiers are actually boxes that can hold gifts!  I think I am going to have to get some chocolate to hide in these layers to make a stash just for me ;)
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

  3. Question: did you back the papers with cardstock to make it more sturdy?

    1. Hi Barbara! The papers in the DCWV Country Floral stack are cardstock and I did not back it with any other papers to make make it more sturdy because I felt it was great just as it was! The pattern on the inside of the boxes that you see in the last picture is the back side of the Country Floral papers. It is a double sided cardstock stack :)

  4. Best way to get a birthday cake! The patterns are super pretty! Hope you had a fabulous day!

  5. WOW! Awesome & BEAUTIFUL!! LOVE your 3D projects... the papers make it even more Elegant!
