Hi friends, have you seen this month’s Spellbinders Large Die of the Month ? It’s a 6 layer cake die!! It got me thinking about making a cake card with all the different colors (flavors) and occasions. One idea kept haunting me (pun intended!) and that was to make a halloween cake card and that’s exactly what I did :)
Spellbinders Large Die of the Month – September 2020
Spooky Halloween Die Set – Small Die of the Month Club Sep 2016 (yes, I still use it!)*
Small Die of the Month Club Sep 2018*
Inspire embossing folder
Both these sets seem to be discontinued, but I am still linking to them so that you know what these were. Feel free to substitute any other pumpkin / spider die cuts or embellishments. Even some cute little bats would look cool too :-)
Die cut the top/outside layers of the cake with purple cardstock
Die cut two layers in orange, two in glitter black cardstock and two with green. My green paper has some glitter too.
Attach the three top / outside layers of the cake using long stripes of foam tape. These will have the layers empty, in which you can fill orange, black and green layers.
Die cut the frosting in green, a couple candles, a spider and a couple spooky pumpkins. Arrange and embellish on the cake.
Die cut the sentiment.
Create a top folding black cardbase.
Create a white panel slightly smaller than an A2 card front and dry emboss using Inspire folder. I did it backwards for some added weirdness for halloween.
Assemble the card and decorate with White Blizzard nuvo drops.
Add a single googly eye to the spider for some extra extra weirdness and call it done!
