Here's a project I wanna share. It's my version of a an explosion box (if that's what it's really called...) When you take off the lid, you see this wedding scene. Before I started making cards, I have pondered upon learning how to decorate cakes. I have a couple of friends who can bake so delicious cakes and decorate them beautifully! While thinking about it, I needed to learn how to bake a cake first before I learn how to decorate it. *** Sigh*** So I thought, I might as well just decorate a cake made of paper. And here is my first decorated cake...inside a box card.
I used Magnolia Stamp: Tilda & Edwin, Doohickeys: Bloomy Tag, Vintage Lace, Heart Swirl, 
Dream Tag, Heart Tag, Wedding Paper Pack, WOC flowers, lace ribbon,
 charms, cheese cloth and lots of glue!
I colored Tilda and Edwin using Distress Inks.  Stitched the paper pieces and stained some tags with Vintage Photo.
